Paradox Interactive and Haemimont Games Announce Surviving Mars at PDXCON 2017
Paradox Interactive, a publisher of games that probe new themes every day, today revealed Surviving Mars, a new management strategy game coming to Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs. Surviving Mars is developed by Haemimont Games, an independent developer best known for titles such as Victor Vran and several games in the Tropico series. The new game challenges players to plan and build a functioning colony on Mars, balancing inhabitants’ basic survival needs with sanity and quality of life, all while dealing with the hostile environment of the red planet.
In Surviving Mars, players will lead a colonization effort on the surface of Mars, from the very first rovers and supply drops to the construction of suitable habitats for brave settlers from Earth. Every colonist will be vital to the mission as the colony struggles to gain a foothold where the environment is hostile and resources are scarce. With each success, however, players will gain the ability to expand further, and even establish a thriving society – and lead a new generation that has never known the Earth.
Check out the Trailer:
A trailer that accompanied the announcement has a mixed tone. The English-language voiceover is stoic, even somber at times, while the autonomous robots crawling over the surface of the red planet are rendered playfully. In the final moments, a pair of bumbling astronauts puzzle over a set of instructions for building a surface installation.
