Surviving Mars
  • genre: Strategy

  • developer: Haemimont Games
  • publisher: Paradox Interactive
  • platform: PC, XONE, PS4

In Surviving Mars for PC / Windows the player is tasked with building a prospering colony on Mars. His tasks include taking care of matters that have direct impact on the success of the project: providing access to oxygen, to water, to food and to other resources required for the colonists to live and be happy; maintaining constant access to electricity; mining the required resources and improving knowledge, for example by organizing exploration trips into new areas of the planet and by conducting science experiments (that can lead to unpredictable situations).

Making the colony ready to accept first humans isn’t simple – it requires preparing various life support systems. What’s important, even after organizing energy and water sources, these systems can be damaged or deactivated by environmental factors. For example: in order to provide water for the colony, the machines must drill to the underground resources and then prepare a mechanism that will pump the water to tanks on the surface. These tanks are susceptible to low temperature. Cold can also increase the need for electricity of the colony – this might be very troublesome if there is a sandstorm at the same time and it covers the solar cells with dust.
