Indie developers Intermarium have revealed that their latest project, Race to Mars, is set for release in early 2014. Race to Mars will make its debut on PC, Mac and Linux formats with iOS and Android editions set to follow later in the year.
Race to Mars is a turn-based, space company simulation videogame. Players will become the head of the newly established “New Space” company whose goal would be to establish a colony on Mars. You begin as a startup – develop cutting edge aerospace technologies and use them to achieve orbit and fly beyond Earth vicinity, blazing the trail of a space pioneer and leaving the competition far behind on your way to victory.
“Our game will achieve two goals – promote the outer space industry and satisfy all economy game fans. Race to Mars combines the realism of a spaceport management sim and approachable gameplay – we assure you that both subject aficionados and casual gamers will find this mixture most entertaining. Our priority is to make an approachable game without compromising its key economical and strategical features.” Said Szymon Janus, the CEO of Intermarium.
Race to Mars will hit KickStarter in just a couple of weeks, and Intermarium hope that with the support of their fans we’ll be able to create a much more detailed product. The team are developing the videogame in close cooperation with scientists from a Polish space industry company, Kosmonauta.net and are using Unity, the leading multiplatform videogame engine. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with the promising Race to Mars, including with the first in-game footage promised to be revealed soon.
