Just because NASA doesn't go to the moon anymore doesn't mean you can't. MoonBase Commander, the 2002 turn-based strategy game from Humongous Entertainment, is now available on Steam. Even better news, it costs significantly less than a real-life NASA-sponsored space ride: $6 gets you your very own moon base to command.

Humongous Entertainment still exists today, but no longer owns the rights to MoonBase Commander; that honor now belongs to Aliens Vs. Predator developer Rebellion. Now you know who to thank for allowing you to launch probes and combat rival factions via turn-based gameplay.

We think we'll call our base "Moon Unit Zappa."
