'Buzz Aldrin Game' Announced

by Rainier on Dec. 14, 2012 @ 10:11 a.m. PST

In Buzz Aldrin's Space Program Manager players are in charge of carefully managing the agency's budget by opening programs, spending R&D funds on improving the hardware, recruiting personnel and astronauts and launching space missions.

The deal will allow Slitherine to draw on the expansive knowledge of Buzz Aldrin, one of the first men to set foot on the Moon. The deal secures the support of Buzz Aldrin Enterprises in the promotion and exploitation of the game but more importantly grants direct access to Buzz on critical aspects of the game design.

JD McNeil, Chairman of Slitherine, said: "We are privileged and honored to have the opportunity of working with Buzz. He is an extraordinary individual and a true hero of modern history. The game will sit perfectly in our catalogue, we work in a particular niche of the videogames market and this title will fit very well. With Buzz’s help we will be expanding our gaming experience into space exploration!”

After a long military career in the U.S. Air Force, Buzz Aldrin joined NASA in 1963 and became the second human being to set foot on the moon during the Apollo 11 landing on July 20, 1969.

When asked about the deal with Slitherine and the project, Buzz Aldrin declared: "I’m very happy to be working with Slitherine on this project. Not only will it focus on the space missions I was privileged to take part in, but it will also include my Aldrin Cycler concept which incorporates my vision of how we should get to Mars."
