Free: Surviving Mars for Windows and macOS
Surviving Mars available for free for Windows and macOS
Surviving Mars, a science fiction building game is currently available for free. The game was produced by the makers of Tropico and published by Paradox Interactive. The latter are also the publishers of Cities Skylines, for example.
The goal of the game is to build a new home for humans on Mars. Not an easy task, considering the not necessarily good conditions the planet offers for human life. In the process, you expand the colony from the earth in underground caves and thus create the basis for a new way of life. In an interplay of construction and resource collection, you progress steadily in the formation of the colony and come closer and closer to the goal of establishing a new human home.
At the same time, the game combines construction elements with not a little strategy.
