“We feel that strategy and management games are at their best. While they let the player experience the unique story being told by their decisions. And Surviving Mars is going to have that in a big way,” said Gabriel Dobrev, CEO of Haemimont Games. “Your colonists aren’t just working to improve production. They’re struggling to survive, so their conflicts and concerns are nse. Surviving Mars lets you understand what your colonists are dealing with on an individual level. So coming up with creative plans for those needs will be a new challenge for our fans.”

In Surviving Mars, players will lead a colonization effort on the surface of Mars. Right from the very first rovers and supply drops to the construction of suitable habitats for brave settlers from Earth. So every colonist will be vital to the mission as the colony struggles to gain a foothold. While the environment is hostile and resources are scarce in gaming. With each success, however, players will gain the ability to expand further. Even establish a thriving society. Leading a new generation that has never known the Earth.

From Paradox Interactive

“We’ve wanted to work with Haemimont Games for years. And it looks like the stars have finally aligned,” said Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive. “Expanding our management-strategy catalogue has been something we’ve wanted to do for some time. After the successful launch of Cities: Skylines on Linux, Mac and Windows PC. While building the player community around that genre. Finding a developer who shares our core design tenets is always gratifying. But with Haemimont and Surviving Mars we’re going to be giving our players a new experience that’s uniquely their own. And I’m looking forward to hearing the tales of triumph and catastrophe from our community.”
