Survive on Mars is a first person survival game for Microsoft Windows.
Surviving in the harsh conditions of the Red Planet will be hard, but if you are strong enough, you will succeed.
Find the best way to survive, but be careful, since each wrong step will ensure your demise.
The environment is your main enemy. Radiation, low temperatures and the oxygen-free atmosphere will certainly kill you.
The meteorites also pose a threat and may even destroy your base and kill you. There is a chance to see a "burning" meteorite at each 30-50 minutes. When they explode, the parts are scattered over a fairly large radius.
The modular system will let you create structures by your heart's desires.
- Craft 3D parts by using a specialized printer and start working immediately on your new headquarters.
- WPT (Wireless Power Transfer) is used to transfer power without cables, from solar panels to power bank/s, and then to the base.
- If you want to see what's happening outside at night time, you can craft a wireless camera and mount it on the base.
- You will also need a light source to see. For this, you can craft a "Flood Light".
- Because on Mars is so cold, you need to install a heater in your base. Otherwise, you will die.
- OS (Oxygen Supplier) will extract CO2 from atmosphere and will transform it into O2. Without this in your base, you will use the oxygen from your suit.
The abandoned rovers found imbedded into the Mars soil will give you parts to build, retrofit or reverse engineer by case, an entirely new rover. You also can create it with 3D printed parts or you can combine the remaining spare parts for subsequent projects.
Your temporary home will be a spacecraft. You'll be provided with a few items to survive until you will set up a farm, a base and other things that will help you to survive.
You can create water in 2 ways:
By 'boiling' the soil, and by burning hydrogen and oxygen.
You can grow different plants in your base: Arabidopsis, mizuna lettuce, super dwarf wheat, apogey wheat, Brassica rapa, rice, tulips, Kalanchoe, flax, onions, peas, radishes, lettuce, wheat, garlic, cucumbers, parsley, dill, lettuce and cinnamon basil.
If the plants are outside, they will die. But even if they are inside and your base doesn't contain oxygen, they will also die.
You can mine in different ways, but the simple way would to create a drilling machine and to place it where you want to drill. After it will finish its intended task, you can get the 'drilled ore' and melt it to extract the metals. Rocks will also give you resources.
You will find 4 types of rocks:
Rocks that contains aluminium;
Rocks that contains iron;
Rocks that contains silver;
Rocks that contains copper;
You may use portable power banks to store energy from solar panels. If you want to use a PPB (Portable Power Bank) in a rover/vehicle, you can do that to charge it and use it on a vehicle/rover.
You can sell goods (metals and other things) from Mars to Earth by using a small spacecraft. You will receive some coins and you can use them to trade for something from Earth in return.
Survive On Mars is available on Humble Store to pre-order it.
"Survive on Mars is a multiplayer survival game in development for Microsoft Windows, OS X, and Linux. In the game, players have the task to survive on the "Red Planet" by crafting items using the materials they gather.
They can explore the world to get resources, they can plant and grow food, make water, create rovers, drones.
The nights on the "Red Planet" are cold, so.. stay in your base.
The crafting system is simple, you need only resources and a blueprint to craft an item.
The building in the game is simple and easy. You can place a building part anywhere or if you want to unite a part with another, they will link together automatically.
You need to have a laser builder to build something.
The game will pick a random time and you can see a meteorite every 30 or 60 minutes. Find craters and get the resources from it.
The helmet will protect you 'only' when you have Oxygen in your tank... if not, you will die. Outside you will need to use it, but when you are inside and the base is locked (with walls and doors) and have a oxygen generator, you can remove it and you can breath the oxygen from the base.
On a phone you will see the health, the oxygen from the tank, when you need to eat and when you need to drink.
You can grow food and make water in your base.
Each player have a spacecraft. The player are spawned random on the map and they can't move the spacecraft. So, a spacecraft is the temporary home of the player.
You can buy new items or get a resupply mission with credits.
With a laser scanner you can scan rocks to see what they contains."
