Gameplay[edit]

Surviving Mars is a city builder simulation game which takes place on Mars and is modeled after real Martian data.[1] The player chooses a sponsoring nation, each conferring slightly different benefits and a unique building, and then lands on Mars with robotic drones and rovers. These rovers and drones prepare the colony for humans on the red planet by setting up power and water infrastructure, domes, resource depots, oxygen generators, and landing pads. The player's goal is to create a thriving colony on Mars with occasional rockets from Earth, which have limited cargo space, forcing the player to balance bringing resources from Earth and producing resources on Mars. For example, the first human colonists will bring limited food with them on their rocket, so hydroponic farms are crucial to a thriving colony on Mars. The player can bring electronics, machine parts, food, concrete, metal, prefab buildings, rovers and drones from Earth, or research technologies to manufacture them on Mars.[2] Players must balance expanding the colony with managing oxygen, food, water and replacement parts. The game also has story lines called mysteries, which add various events to the colony,[3] including plagues, war, rival corporations, AI revolt, alien contact, and others. Rare metals can be exported back to Earth for funds. Landing sites also have various natural disasters like meteor storms, cold waves and dust devils to increase difficulty.[4][5]

Development[edit]

Haemimont Games, the developer of the Tropico series, led the game's development.[6] The team studied science and challenges real-life scientists consider when thinking about colonizing Mars, then turned them into gameplay elements. The game's aesthetics were inspired by The Jetsons and Futurama.[5] Describing the game as a 'hardcore survival city-builder', publisher Paradox Interactive announced the game in May 2017.[7] The game was released for Windows, macOS, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 15, 2018 with mod support.[8]

Downloadable content[edit]

Surviving Mars has several DLCs, available either separately or as part of the digital season pass available in the game's 'First Colony Edition'. Space Race, the game's first expansion, was released on November 15, 2018, and introduces rival colonies competing to achieve milestones on Mars.[9] The second, Green Planet, was released on May 16, 2019, and introduces the concept of terraforming Mars into a planet that can sustain human life.[10] Several content packs were also released, including a building pack and the 'Marsvision Song Contest' radio station (with the release of Space Race)[11] and 'Project Laika', which introduced ranching on Mars as well as pets in the colony (with the release of Green Planet).[12]

The city-builder game Cities: Skylines, also published by Paradox, received a free DLC based on Surviving Mars.[13]
