Virtual Heroes is proud to announce… Moonbase Alpha 2!
Moonbase Alpha 2 is the sequel to Moonbase Alpha, set to expand on the foundations of the original game with new scenarios, new tools, new challenges, new nationalities, and of course, text-to-speech. Moonbase Alpha 2 will encourage teamwork amid the challenging environs of the moon. Work together. Overcome crisis on the lunar surface. Discover new tools. Improvise. Prevail. And do it all in breathtaking Unreal Engine 4.
Your Help Is Needed
Unlike the original Moonbase Alpha, Virtual Heroes has no outside funding sources to build Moonbase Alpha 2. We have seen the enduring popularity of Moonbase Alpha, and we are reaching out to you, the fans, to help make something even greater. To fund development we will be turning to Kickstarter, seeking a funding goal of $500,000 based on our budget for the original game. What can you do to help? Tell your friends, spread the word on social media, contribute to our crowdfunding campaign. We are grateful for any help that you can give. The only way to make this happen is if we pull together. Moonbase Alpha 2’s success will be because of the passion and good will of our fans.
The Future of Moonbase Alpha
In 2010 and in partnership with NASA, our team of developers at Virtual Heroes released the original Moonbase Alpha. Named one of “Top 50 Free Games” of 2013 by PC Gamer Magazine, Moonbase Alpha went on to 1.1 million downloads… and counting. For anyone who hasn’t played Moonbase Alpha, we invite and encourage you take a trip down memory lane. Download it for free on Steam. Then join us as we embark upon our next great journey to create Moonbase Alpha 2.
Moonbase Alpha 2 seeks to enhance the ability of players to shape their own game experience. One of the primary objectives of this project is to hand you the tools. Improvise and discover. This is your moon. Visit our community forums to let us know what features you would like to see in Moonbase Alpha 2. We want to hear what’s important to you, and where we should target our development goals. Do you want new game mechanics? Multiplatform support? Language localization? Share your thoughts.
Lets make it to the moon, together.
