Hey folks!
We have some exciting news on the development front. As some of you already know we’ve been very busy preparing for full launch, with an array of new features, content and changes scheduled. There’s a lot to do, but it’s totally worth it! The changes we’ve made add so much more to the game, and we can’t wait to share them with you.

Steamcommunity.com

But before we talk about updates, we’d like to give you a heads up on an upcoming price change:

NEW PRICE COMING SOON
As we’re nearing our full release we will be increasing the price of MarZ Rising from 14.99 € / 14.99 $ to 19.99 € / 21.99 $. This reflects the extra time and content we have put into the game since the beginning of Early Access. We wanted to welcome new players with a 10% launch discount, but because of Steam’s rules about pricing we need to change the price ahead of launch day to do this. Therefore, we will submit the new prizes to Steam on Sunday the 3rd of March, while we’re still in Early Access. So if you still want to get the game at the lower Early Access price, now would be a good time to do so 🙂

Now for the latest game news:

MARSFORM
Today we wanted to give you a taste of the Marsform map editor, which will be integrated into MarZ Rising upon full release. With this new tool you’ll be able to create your own individual (and suitably hellish) Mars maps.

The development of Marsform started in early 2018 and while it was just a proof of concept at the beginning, it became a tool to create custom maps for MarZ Rising. So the editor grew, and we felt that we should implement it into the game with Steam workshop integration. Our main goal for Marsform was to make it as intuitive and easy as possible, so that users can plunge directly into the map making process. To create a playable map there are a few steps to follow, which are quite simple.

Let’s have a closer look at the scope of Marsform.

PROCEDURAL GENERATION

Starting a new map, Marsform allows you to create a base terrain procedural. That way you’ll have a strong starting point. Procedural generation allows you to generate realistic or stylized looking terrains. If you prefer to start your map from zero, you can just start sculpting.

SCULPTING TOOLS

We have integrated a variety of terrain sculpting tools into the editor which will help you modify the terrain as you like. Add valleys, hills, mountains, and canyons. Just let your creativity flow!

MATERIALS AND LIGHT

You can choose between 6 different material presets and 3 different light settings to create the perfect mood for your map.

SPAWNERS

Every map needs at least one spawn-point in order to make it playable. Additionally, every spawn-point can have multiple way-points to define the exact path for the enemies. There’s also a path width setting for every way-point, which allows you to create wide or narrow enemy route depending on your terrain.

FOG OF WAR

You can hide spawners and also parts of pathes by painting fog of war. It works pretty much as the sculpt tools, you can set the density and color and paint the fog directly on to your terrain.

PUBLISH & PLAY

Once happy with your map you can publish it to Steam workshop and/or play it in skirmish mode. \o/
We’re sure Marsform will add plenty of additional replayability to the game. Also the creation process of a map is so much fun, we reckon that alone can keep you busy for hours! We’re also hoping to see hundreds of new challenging maps in Steam Workshop, and play some of your creations ourselves.

Stay tuned, any support is very much appreciated!

We would love to bring MarZ Rising to GOG but it all depends on them if they want us. We will try to release the game on GOG after our full release with all available features.

This game is not all that plus it copy cats other games like planet base's shuttle if you notice that. and the game play alone is limited to the mission only. They should have given the game a sandbox mode. I wish i didn't waste time or money on it.

Now they say there's a updated version of the game with all 20 lvls and less bugs. "I WILL NOT PAY FOR A GAME TWICE JUST FOR THIS NEW UPDATE WITH ALL 20 LVLS". Planet base or surviving mars, "(As Examples)", is way better then this wannabe game is. Unless i get the full version of this game then they have lost me and many others as future costumer of any other game they create.

Anyone buying it on Early Access? I love the looks of this game and I really want it (The video is absolutely fantastic!) but I've been burnt too many times on EA and Kickstarter. Especially by small teams that delay development or completely give up because of various life obstacles. And this is just a two-man team.

Should I take another chance?

I'd say no, give it time and wait for reviews.

is the game just tower defense, or will there be a story about who these zombies are supposed to be?

The game is a mixture between RTS and TD (resource management, crew management, micromanagement) There is a story driven single player campaign where you get to know more about the zombies :)

Looks awesome! It looks like the older RTS and I mean it in a good way! Keep it up!

Thank you! Indeed! MarZ Rising was greatly inspired by the older RTS games like the Command&Conquer; series.
