Moonbase Alpha Publisher: NASA
Developer: The Army Game Studio and Virtual Heroes


Platform: PC
Official Site: moonbasealphagame.com

As with so many public projects, Moonbase Alpha started with an RFP ("Request For Proposals"). NASA (the National Aeronautics and Space Administration) was looking for partners to create a persistent online game to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education, and educate the public on NASA's mission. On the way to producing the final game, The Army Game Studio (who won the contract to develop NASA's game) has worked with Virtual Heroes to release Moonbase Alpha. Moonbase Alpha is a "proof of concept" game both to demonstrate that the project could be ultimately successful and to give NASA a chance to evaluate the project's progress.
