My dreams have come true... now we get the chance to build a Mars rover and send it to the red planet ourselves from the comfort of our own computers , once there you can traverse a Martian landscape that the developers claim is modelled from NASA map and technical data , given the developer is Bohemia Interactive I don't doubt that .

The game is currently a Early Access title on Steam and as such still in development but it looks interesting nonetheless if like me you're fascinated by the planet Mars and the missions we've sent there , I don't have the game yet as I've just found out about it but will get it in a day or so .

The simulator for Windows PC allows players to control rovers and landers on the surface of Mars while performing scientific analysis. Players will receive missions that require them to document what they see, analyze rocks, soil and atmosphere, assess radiation hazards for future colonies and determine the chemical composition of areas on the planet to see whether life can be supported.

Speaking to Polygon, Take On Mars' project lead, Martin Melicharek said the development team tried to simulate everything as realistically as possible so that those who are interested in Mars can learn more about the red planet while also enjoying the simulation.

Space Program: Explore Mars from the perspective of a fictional space agency. Players unlock new technologies, vehicles and instruments to tackle the tasks ahead.

Scenarios: Land on the surface of Mars with a functional vehicle and complete individual missions centered around various scientific mission objectives

Editor: Create custom scenarios with missions of varying complexity.

A dynamic destruction system where vehicles can be destroyed by severing their cameras, robotic arms, and individual struts and wheels.

Realistic terrain with locations on the surface of Mars that are based on actual satellite data from places such as Victoria Crater.

I will update the thread with my thoughts when I get the game or if anyone gets or has it already let us know what you think

Take on Mars strives to turn the tedium of real-world Mars exploration into a fun game

First thing that came to mind when I saw this was how much fun Arken could have with it, haha.

I can just imagine his Mars threads featuring screenshots of him playing, hah!

Honestly, though, I do dig his threads.
