Colonize Mars and discover her secrets, with minimal casualties.
Surviving Mars is a sci-fi city builder all about colonizing Mars and surviving the process. Choose a space agency for resources and financial support before determining a location for your colony. Build domes and infrastructure, research new possibilities, and utilize drones to unlock more elaborate ways to shape and expand your settlement. Cultivate your own food, mine minerals or just relax by the bar after a hard day’s work. Most important of all, though, is keeping your colonists alive -- not an easy task on a strange new planet.
There will be challenges to overcome. Execute your strategy and improve your colony’s chances of survival while unlocking the mysteries of this alien world. Are you ready? Mars is waiting for you – with plenty of added content to discover in the Premium Edition!
Build a sustainable colony in space:
Building on a planet not fit for human life challenges you to build a smart, functional colony. Bad planning isn’t about traffic jams; it’s about life and death. There’s never a good time for your air supply to have a power failure!
Individually simulated colonists:
Each colonist is a unique individual with problems and strengths that influence other colonists. Things can get “interesting” if your chief scientist develops alcoholism after one too many long nights in the lab.
Futuristic space dome construction:
Design retro-futuristic super structures to house colonists, factories and commercial buildings with their own “neighborhood personality.” Create societies that value science over everything else, or attempt to engineer utopia among the stars.
Exploration of Mars’ secrets:
Inspired by the classic sci-fi of Asimov and Clarke, Surviving Mars holds many secrets. During each playthrough, players may encounter one of Mars’ individually crafted mysteries. Will those floating entities bring your colony great fortune, or terrible ruin?
Randomized research tree:
Combine static and random research through exploration, which allows for a different experience for each journey through the game. Attain new scientific breakthroughs by exploring the uncharted terrain of Mars' surface.
