Ever wanted to go surfing on the moon?
Of course, you did.
In Moon Surfing, you grab a solar board and surf the moon’s dusty hills and steep craters. It is up to you – if you roam freely, perhaps practicing some kickflips, or if you head directly to the marked waypoints.
All the game’s 5184 areas are procedurally generated. The landscapes early in the game, are reminiscent of NASA’s Apollo program. But, when you reach the far side of the moon, the terrain algorithm gets increasingly out of hand, producing an ethereal topography, suited only for the most experienced of players.
Moon Surfing’s online server keeps track of your progress, and the progress of all other players. You will know which areas have been conquered already, and when. All players are in this together.
