Why be a ♥♥♥♥♥ about it? They obviously had limited resources, time and money. They made what they could. Keep in mind this was suppose to be an educational simulator game. And yet still it has a fan following. Probably not for the reasons they wanted but people do like it. ♥♥♥♥ you.

Hey look, I'm not going to get too serious about things but, I have to say and I'm not the only one to say this....the next time I'm having a really bad day and am down....I'm logging into MBA because it amuses me so. It's got the strange following. Part of the fun is discovering the glitches too. That's alot of what I like to do, besides listening to the TTS. I was reading a thread somewhere that had one of the developers saying they wanted people to have fun with it and even had fun with it themselves. My feeling is on why it didn't meet the expectations is because NASA has no idea about the gaming community. They probably thought they were tapping into the everyday gamer, hired a company to make it obviously since their speciality is catapulting things into space not cranking out games for retail. There is also, what was the time crunch given to the developers vs realistic expectations. Was the concept instersting...sure but you can tell that something hindered its progress. Be it the one callling the shots. The developers or someone else, maybe NASA itself was putting pressure on the studio in queston. Bato summed up what I have said real well.

I think the game you probably should look for if you are looking for something that requires alot of critical thinking an planning that is like NASA in a PC game would be Kerbal Space Program. It considers alot of real world physics in its design. It's definetly alot more NASA like than MBA ironically enough. The ships you have to launch in it has to launch alot like the way modern real world shuttles and rockets are lanched. Orbiting a planet too isn't easy. Landing on a surface. Sorry if I'm telling you about a game you may already know about. I don't really know but just incase you don't...give the demo a try and watch a few youtuve vids of it.

I mostly worked on the PR/social media end of the project and it's not my place to go into a lot of detail but I can say that like many game projects there were limited resources and time but there was a great team of experienced developers and I think they used those resources and time well. They actually released some fixes and additional content ("Moonbase Madness" and the "sandbox") on their own dime as well after the project was officially over. Is the game perfect? No, but I think for... one small step (heh) it was very good and obviously a lot of people have gotten a great deal of enjoyment out of the game (whether serious or goofing around). In my opinion (as they say on TV).

Plus, it was free so there you go. :)

I'm glad to see that you guys realize that no one takes this game seriously.

And that you haven't fixed any of the hilarious chat glitches (for instance, if you say a curse-word in all caps twice or more, it will only be censored the first time).
