Space Program Manager is deployed in orbit today!
“The biggest benefit of Apollo was the inspiration it gave to a growing generation to get into science and aerospace.” (Buzz Aldrin – US astronaut, member of Apollo 11 mission)
Until the very last minute, the brilliant engineers from Polar Motion have been working on the quality and the reliability of the components. Now that the rocket is on the launch pad with its engine firing, they feel slightly nervous. A 7-year game project is finally coming to its end. “T minus 10” announces the flight controller from Slitherine. The tension is rising a bit more in the control tower. And suddenly the sound of the rocket covers everything else and the spaceship rises quickly into the air. Trajectory is perfect, all indicators are on green, and every member of the program can breathe normally again. So far, the mission is a success!
Indeed, today we are excited to announce that Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager is finally released and available on both our online stores and on Steam!
In this game, focused on the history of space exploration, the players are taking on the role of a space agency director. By opening programs, launching missions, allocating the right financial and human resources to the programs available, they help humanity to boldly go a step further in the solar system. But space is only one more place in the universe to defy your enemy. Indeed both fans of management and competitive games will have a blast playing the Cold War campaign in which both US and Soviet factions are engaged to be the first to place their flag on the surface of the Moon!
Following an intense and satisfying early-access period, Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager has been designed in direct cooperation with the community, taking ideas from the fans and implementing them as new features. This includes the addition of the Soviet Space Agency, as well as the often requested multiplayer modes.It is thanks to the early adopters that we have been able to make the most of the game and we thank them all for their input. Obviously the contribution of Buzz Aldrin himself is beyond compare. As an engineer, pilot and astronaut, he delivered extremely precious advice to the developers to help them designing an immersive and realistic game about the conquest of space!
We are offering a $10 discount to the early adopters during the week of the launch! We are also going to offer a free Steam key to anyone who bought a copy of the game from the Matrix Games or Slitherine store, once the game is available on this digital platform!
Last but not least every player who buys the game before November 30th will be able to enter a competition and win awesome prizes like a trip to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida!
