Moonbase Alpha

What is Moonbase Alpha?

Moonbase Alpha is a video game that provides a realistic simulation of life on a natural satellite based on potential moon base programs. Moonbase Alpha is set in the year 2032 and focuses on exploring the day in the life of a lunar-based astronaut. As a meteor strike damages an outpost near the moon's South Pole, the player must take control of a member of the outpost's research team and repair the outpost in order to save the 12 years of research accomplished there. These tasks will include repairing vital components of the life support system, solar array and oxygen units, and can be accomplished with a wide variety of tools ranging from robotic repair units to the lunar rover.

Overview

A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The setup package generally installs about 79 files and is usually about 1.03 GB (1,106,432,232 bytes). The installed file SteamAPIUpdater.dll is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered.
