Buzz Aldrin's Race Into Space, frequently abbreviated BARIS, is a 1993 space simulation and strategy game for MS-DOS. The player takes the role of Administrator of NASA or head of the Soviet space program with the ultimate goal of being the first side to conduct a successful manned moon landing.
It was developed by Strategic Visions and published by Interplay Entertainment as a computer version of LIFTOFF!, a 1989 board game developed by Fritz Bronner.
BARIS was re-released in 1994 on CD-ROM, incorporating the earlier updates to the floppy disk version, a few new updates, improved video of the mission launches,and new multiplayer modes.
The developers worked to maintain historical accuracy, including all the actual major space hardware and several alternative proposals that were considered at the time, but did make some compromises and simplifications in the name of game balance and avoiding complexity.
They also consulted Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin, who permitted his name be used for the game.
