''Moonbase Alpha'', a game developed by the makers of ''AmericasArmy'' and published by NASA, intends to be a simulation of what the normal missions of an astronaut would be in a rather dire futuristic situation and to give people a chance to stomp about on the moon in the boots of an astronaut. Reactions were mixed, although the game does seem to provide its dual purpose of amusement and slight education (or wish fulfillment). The game is also infamous for an option to turn on a Stephen Hawking-esque [[SyntheticVoiceActor voice synthesizer program]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hv6RbEOlqRo the abuse of which]] [[MemeticMutation became wildly popular]] ([[WatchItForTheMeme and, unintentionally, the game's biggest attraction]]).

Added DiffLines:

* HarshVocals: Courtesy of the speech synthesizer, which can accept specifications for duration and pitch along with things to say. Players cheerfully use this capability to serenade one another with everything from popular music to the Soviet national anthem.
