John and Dave, aka Team Moon Rising, send word of their game which is called uh Moon Rising. But what is it? Well it’s a turn-based strategy game set on the moon, and we first mentioned it about a year ago. It’s got a new beta out, which you can get hold of over here. And does it have…?

Moon Rising is the first project from a two-man team of veterans who have been touching screen for a while but have now decided to return to PC and Mac. Imagine that it is 2099 and the moon is being mined for its precious Helium-3. Sam Rockwell is nowhere to be seen so instead of battling boredom and a bit of an identity crisis, you’ll be scrapping over resources as the commander of one of Earth’s superpowers. Personally I don’t think Earth will be capable of supporting a single moderatepower by 2099 but I’m pleased by the optimistic view of a world still strong enough to be at war with itself. Moon combat is turn-based and tactical as shown in the video below. Beta signups are open.
