Company: Enlight
PARKVILLE, MD — (November 28, 2006) — Enlight, one of the world’s leading developers and publishers of entertainment software for the PC platform,
announced today that Vision Videogames’ SpaceStationSim has shipped to North American retail outlets. Available exclusively on the PC, SpaceStationSim is rated E 10+ and carries an MSRP of $19.99.

SpaceStationSim offers players the unique opportunity to build and operate their own version of the International Space Station (ISS). As the first game
ever developed in collaboration with NASA, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, players assume the role of Chief Administrator of NASA and manage astronaut crewmembers as they live, work, and play aboard their uniquely created ISS. Gamers must successfully run their space station by guiding the astronauts through rigorous missions and numerous challenges such as fires and equipment malfunctions.

“SpaceStationSim provides everyone with the opportunity to become part of the space station program by allowing players to create their own unique ideas and innovations for space exploration,” said Paul Lombardi, chief executive officer of Enlight Interactive, USA. “Adults and kids alike will be able to bring the adventure of space home this holiday season.”

“We hope to create a sense of pride and ownership in NASA, and show gamers what an exciting challenge it is to construct and manage a living, breathing space ship and crew,” said Bill Mueller, game designer and president of Vision Videogames, LLC.

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), can be used to create a unique ISS. In addition to building the station, players must take care to attend to the astronauts’ needs and relationships, each having distinct personalities and abilities. Careful planning, management, design and strategy will lead players to a successful space station program, and guide mankind to the next era of space exploration and discovery.
