Here’s another look at your methods for Surviving Mars

Published On August 22, 2017 | By Kirk Hiner | Macintosh

It goes without saying that settling Mars will be difficult. Mac gamers will also soon find out that surviving Mars will be equally difficult. Paradox Interactive is bringing their new sci-fi management/strategy game—Surviving Mars—to Mac in 2018, and they’ve released a new in-game trailer to let you know what to expect.

It looks like it’s not going to end well, but what would you expect out where resources are thin, the environment is hostile, and you’ll find yourself trying to balance productivity with sanity.

Surviving Mars

Before we get to the clip, here’s some detail about the game so you know what you’re looking at.

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.

If you ask that me, that whole “…never known the Earth” bit makes the struggle worthwhile.

Anyway, here’s the clip:
