While going to Mars still has many problems and details to work out in real life, Surviving Mars will let us head over to the Red Planet pretty soon. From Haemimont Games, the developers of Tropico 5, this game is going to put players back in the management seat.
Unlike Tropico 5 though, your people are much less… replaceable. If you have a bad apple you need to work with that colonist, because they are probably critical to the mission in some or other way. Supply drops from Earth will help keep things going, but survival and sanity are things you will need to manage while building up a long-term habitat on Mars.
“We feel that strategy and management games are at their best when they let the player experience the unique story being told by their decisions, and Surviving Mars is going to have that in a big way…….. Your colonists aren’t just working to improve production, they’re struggling to survive, and their conflicts and concerns are intense. Surviving Mars lets you understand what your colonists are dealing with on an individual level, and coming up with creative plans for those needs will be a new challenge for our fans.” said Gabriel Dobrev, CEO of Haemimont Games.
Surviving Mars will be heading to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2018.
