PARKVILLE, MD - (November 2, 2006) - Enlight, one of the world's leading developers and publishers of entertainment software for the PC platform, today announced that it will bring Vision Videogames' "SpaceStationSim" to North American retail stores this month at an SRP of $19.99.
"SpaceStationSim" is the first space station game ever developed in collaboration with NASA, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The game gives players the opportunity to build their own unique version of the International Space Station (ISS) using dozens of modules and stylized components from NASA and its four exploration partners, the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), European Space Agency (ESA), Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), and the Russian Space Agency (RSA).
"Space exploration and discovery is one of the last frontiers and SpaceStationSim gives everyone the opportunity to feel a part of the adventure," said Paul Lombardi, chief executive officer of Enlight Interactive, USA. "SpaceStationSim is the perfect game or gift this holiday season for anyone who has an interest in space."
In addition to creating a unique ISS, the player acts in the roll of the Chief Administrator of NASA, and creates astronaut crewmembers to live and work aboard the space station. The astronauts have unique needs, abilities and personalities, and players manage their activities and personal relationships. Astronauts face mission critical situations, including fires and equipment breakdowns, while conducting micro gravity experiments and dealing with space tourists shipped aboard by the Russians. Through strategy, design, management, discovery, and care of the crew, the player's ISS may usher in the dawn of a new age for man in space.
