I spend a lot of time and I mean a lot of time playing Paradox Interactive’s Surviving Mars. Whether trying to communicate with aliens or survive a rogue AI, there is so much to do on the planet, including making it lovely and green to support life.
It appears that Paradox has other plans for us though, as it wants to take us away from the difficult but mostly peaceful surface of Mars and shove us into a post-apocalypse setting to build colonies and survive. What kind of apocalypse? We don’t even know yet. The trailer, while really pretty, is vague enough to get us all thinking about what could be on the horizon.
The next survival colony builder is slated to release in 2020 and we should get a bit more information at PDXCon on October 19. Until then, think about the apocalypse you want to survive and maybe get a few achievements done in Surviving Mars.
