Race To Mars - tribute to Buzz Aldrin's Race Into Space

Hi

I’m a member of INTERMARUM, an independent game developer from Poland. If you'd been waiting for something in BARIS's style, then exactly that's what we are trying to achieve. The game's name is Race To Mars.

Race To Mars is a turn-based, space company simulation game. Become the head of a newly created “New Space” company whose goal is to establish a colony on Mars. You begin as a start-up and develop cutting edge aerospace technologies to reach orbit. Flying beyond the vicinity of Earth, blaze the trail into space and leave the competition far behind on your way to victory.

Our game aims at achieving two goals: promoting the outer space industry and satisfying all fans of economy games. Race To Mars combines the realism of a space-port management sim and approachable gameplay. We assure you that both subject enthusiasts and casual gamers will find this mixture highly entertaining. Our priority is to make an approachable game without compromising its key economic and strategic features.

On the main game screen, there will be the firm’s HQ and additional buildings related to the company’s activities. Most of the buildings will be created during the game, in the development phase of various projects, both major and minor ones. For example, a medium-size launch pad will be developed during R&D activities related to the medium-size rocket.

As an important game element, the player will have to interact with National Space and Air Office, the military, scan new market offers and monitor the activity of competitors. The authors of the game propose a simplified system called “the market”.

Since we aim at delivering the best quality, the game is being developed in close cooperation with scientists from a Polish space industry company Kosmonauta.net. Also, we are using Unity - the leading multiplatform game engine. Thanks to this, we are able to deliver top quality content.

Recently we have launched a Kickstarter campaign, which we are planning to help us speed up the development process of the game.

If the above sounds interesting for you, and you would like to get some more info what we are doing please visit our KS page:
