    Nasa have made a free game to play, simply download it off of Steam. It was on the OCAU news front page recently;

    http://forums.overclockers.com.au/showthread.php?t=886254

    I'm currently capped, so can't download it for another week, but has anyone else managed to download and play it?

    More information can be found here;

    Or simply log onto Steam and browse for the game. :)

    Oxygen Tank Rush!

    No railguns, yes tank rush, oxygen tanks!

    I am making this up, I haven't played it, but I do intend to when I've completed what I'm working on at the moment.

    Sorry for any inconvenience I have caused to you or your family at this point in time.:Pirate:

    Graphics are a little dated, the game is EXTREMELY buggy (and short) making it loads of fun, once or twice. Save the bandwidth if it costs you money.

    Yay. Another serious game initiative deployed by a government agency. Although, i dont think this will recruit astronauts as well as America's Army.

    The only good thing about was how it changed your text to voice.....John madden, John madden.

    In short no ones playing anymore. Well I was over it after about the 3rd time.
