Have you ever wanted to experience the thrill of the 1950s and 60s space race? Well, now you can, thanks to GOG. Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager is now available DRM-free from everyone’s favorite digital storefront. You can grab it for 50% off until July 26th.
Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager takes place in the mid-1950s as the space race between the USA and the Soviet Union was about to begin. You can play as either the US or the Soviets as they attempt to be the first to reach the moon. The game involves careful budget planning and management, R&D allocation, and launching space missions, among other things.

Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager sees players battling whichever side they didn’t pick for space supremacy. There are two modes available: Campaign and Sandbox. In Campaign, you’ll play as either the Americans or the Soviets and try to beat the other side to the Moon. Alternately, there’s a third campaign available in the form of the Global Space Agency. This one’s geared more towards players who prefer exploration to competition. As you might expect, Sandbox mode allows you to explore the game without political pressure or immediate objectives.
To ensure authenticity in Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager, developer Polar Motion and publisher Slitherine worked closely with US Air Force combat pilot and NASA astronaut Buzz Aldrin. Naturally, Aldrin needs no introduction, but if you’re unaware, he’s the second human being to walk on the Moon’s surface. We’ve just celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Moon landings. Why not commemorate the occasion by managing your very own space program?
Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager is available right now via GOG. Make sure to grab it before July 26th for your 50% discount.
Disclosure: GOG works with TechRaptor to provide benefits for our Pack Hunter members.
