What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Tranquility Base Mining Colony: The Moon - Explorer Version, is the Early Access version to our Tranquility Base Mining Colony: The Moon - Achiever Version, which is due to be released in 2019.
We've been working on the ACHIEVER version for two years now, and decided that since we've had so much fun running around the Moon for the last two years, that we'd share this experience with those fellow space-geeks who'd like to geek out, like us, and explore the Moon from this unique point of view that very few have ever experienced.
We also believe that it's a good idea to share and be open to feedback and collaboration before the release of the full-fledged ACHIEVER version.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The Tranquility Base Mining Colony: The Moon EXPLORER version will be available until at least July, 2019 or when the ACHIEVER version is released.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“This EXPLORER version is comprised of the unique play area, as described, as well as the Tranquility Base Lunar Reserve Visitor Center, which is the gateway to the Apollo 11 Landing Site.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“This EXPLORER version consists of the unique play area along with the Starter Arena, the Tranquility Base Lunar Reserve Visitor Center and 1 character with jet-pack.

This play area is massive, consisting of about 17,000 sq kilometers of lunar terrain that was rendered using NASA data to create a realistic lunar experience for our players.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The prices between the EXPLORER version and the ACHIEVER version will be different.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The Community is our market, or at least the focus group to our future market. Therefore, we will be very open to feedback and collaboration to ensure our success.”

About This Game



Wanna' walk on the Moon?

Tranquility Base Mining Colony: The Moon - Explorer Version, is the Early Access version to our Tranquility Base Mining Colony: The Moon - Achiever Version, which is due to be released in July, 2019.

We've been working on the ACHIEVER version for two years now, and decided that since we've had so much fun running around the Moon for the last two years, that we'd share this experience with those fellow space-geeks who'd like to geek out, like us, and explore the Moon from this unique point of view that very few have ever experienced.

This is an open-world game area that encompasses about 17,000 sq kilometers of lunar terrain around the Apollo 11 landing site. We've taken topographic data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Laser Altimeter (LOLA) which is mounted on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) to create this 3d map for you to explore.

You and your character can view in first-person or third-person perspective as you explore:
  • Begin at the the Starter Arena, along the southern rim of Moltke AC Crater as you learn the fundamentals of Jet-Packing in the Moon's low gravity environment.
  • Explore Hypatia Rille and visit nearby Moltke A Crater and the highlands south of the Sea of Tranquility.
  • Walk or Jet-pack down into the enormous Moltke Crater which is about 6 kilometers across.
  • Head north to visit the Tranquility Base Lunar Reserve Visitor Center, gateway to the Apollo 11 landing site. Head further north to Collins Crater, or the east to see Armstrong Crater or to the far west to visit Aldrin Crater, all named after the Apollo 11 astronauts.

There is so much more to see and explore. You'll see just how beautiful the Moon actually is up close and personal, from the vast Sea of Tranquility to the highlands and mountains in the south.
