Having been mainly known for taking over the reins of the Tropico saga and developing Victor Vran, the Bulgarian studio Haemimont Games has offered to try us for two hours in its next title: Surviving Mars Download. Halfway between pure management game and survival, Surviving Mars, as its name suggests, offers you to lead an expedition to colonize the red planet and bring enough settlers to make excursion a real success. But of course, such a business is not done without money and without support, so the beginning of the game offers you to choose a sponsor who, briefly, will condition your initial funding (and therefore the difficulty of the beginning of the game) , but also the amount of cumulative search points each day eventually allowing you to unlock new technologies, but we’ll come back to that.
You will also need to choose a leader profile which, again, will determine a specific bonus on your entire game. A political profile will bring you more money, a scientific profile will accelerate the construction of buildings … not less than 9 profiles are available. In short, you are spoiled for choice to get started in a part of your image.On arrival of your first shuttle, Mars is not yet ready to welcome locals. Only a few rovers for the exploration and collection of basic resources are available, as well as a handful of drones, which are, in essence, the bulk of your basic workforce that will serve as much for the construction as for repairing your infrastructure.
The first thing to do is to reveal the neighboring huts and the resources found there. Once enough resources are collected, energy is generated and water is stored, you can begin to transport your first settlers to your new Eldorado. Of course, it’s out of the question to make your population live on the asphyxiating air of Mars. . You must first build a dome, it will supply electricity to accommodate the first homes.
You have the choice of the population to be brought in priority: gender, age, professional skills, you can refine the selection of your settlers to better meet the needs of your fledgling colony. Once the first inhabitants settled, they will have to find work. Hospitals, farms, factories, mines … the possibilities of occupations are numerous and the assignment to different positions takes over the system operated by Tropico: with a single click, you can increase or reduce the workforce of a company to adapt its productivity to the material and human needs necessary for the development of your colony.
However, employment is not the only concern you will face during your game. A multitude of events will be to manage, starting with the general happiness of your colony. An unemployment rate too high, homelessness too many, poor hygiene and the morale of your troops will be at half-mast, sometimes leading some suicide, just that. This is not trivial since, the goal of the game being to extend a maximum on March, it is necessary to keep your settlers alive and healthy for them to procreate and perennial colony. On our gaming session, we had to deal with many micro-management elements that involve solving many problems, be they buildings to repair, inventory of goods to manage or infrastructure to build .
In addition, with each revolution of the planet, you collect research points intended to unlock the different elements of a technological tree. Quite clearly and clearly available, the tree provides access to many different structures: larger habitats, improved energy management, optimized waste disposal are all options available to you to better adapt to the imperatives of life in hostile territory. A tree that is not unlike Civilization, and that accentuates the mixing of genres, for the moment rather intriguing, Surviving Mars.
Finally, note that Surviving Mars also has script elements to manage. At the beginning of the game, you can choose from 8 mysteries, which will be triggered at certain moments of the adventure. In the case presented to us, strange black cubes appeared on both sides of the colony. We had to send rovers to analyze this, to unlock the technologies necessary to study this anomaly while keeping an eye on the anxiety that is growing among the population, anxious following the appearance of these alien cubes. Difficult, however, for the moment to judge the real interest of these mysteries or their long-term impact on the morphology of the game.
