Occupy Mars: The Game open world survival is coming to Windows PC, but is looking at a Linux port. Thanks to a recent reply from developer Pyramid Games. Which is due to release on Steam Early Access this year.
Occupy Mars: The Game takes players to the distant surface of the Red Planet. Which we not only have to examine, but also prepare for colonization. Building a functional base and maintaining its condition. All while discovering new technologies and their successful development. As a result of exploring uncharted territories that player will undertake. The Mars singleplayer expedition brings as many possibilities, as threats. The biggest challenge for the players will be not only harsh climate. But dangerous atmospheric abnormalities while satisfying the basic needs of life.
Among many peculiar Martian challenges. Players will also have to find the right place to build a living space. Due to the extremely difficult living conditions. The base in Occupy Mars: The Game will require many repairs and upgrades. The colony which the player builds will need to be precisely thought out. If we want to bring more people to the planet – nothing can be missed.
Occupy Mars also uses Unity engine. I’m a heavy linux user myself but not sure when we’ll make the Linux port. First, we need to focus on finishing the [Windows] PC version.
Clearly the interest in a Linux port for Occupy Mars: The Game is already there. And of course, a developer that is also a Linux user is always welcome. Being that the game is due to hit Early Access. And remain in that development state for 1 year. And as stated, “we need to focus on finishing the PC version.”

With the coming release of Occupy Mars: The Game on Steam. The developers also issued an improved prologue on June 30th, 2020. Doing so as a follow up to the Steam Festival. Just a short demo of Occupy Mars: The Game. What’s more, Linux Proton users are also able to achieve Platinum support. While taking on a separate smaller story. Which is not available now, despite the Steam page. But the prologue certainly lets player get a taste of the action. Which takes place before the events in Occupy Mars: The Game. After the end of Steam Festival, the demo was replaced by an improved game prologue. Hopefully, they bring it back. The developers want everyone to test and test themselves in Mars conditions. Since Pyramid are looking to collect feedback from players. And also help to complete and improve the full version of the game for its release.
Occupy Mars: The Game is due to release on Steam Early Access later this year. The open world survival will arrive on Windows PC. But it looks like a Linux release is on the table as well. Although, coming later. So be sure to Wishlist the game on Steam.
