Start your race to Mars with Steam Early Access!
Mars just became green!
Description
Release date: 2Q 2014
Race To Mars is a turn-based, space company simulation game. Become the head of the newly established “New Space” company whose goal would be to establish a colony on Mars. You begin as a startup - develop cutting edge aerospace technologies and use them to achieve orbit and fly beyond Earth vicinity, blazing the trail of a space pioneer and leaving the competition far behind on your way to victory.

Our game will achieve two goals - promote the outer space industry and satisfy all economy game fans. Race To Mars combines the realism of a spaceport management sim and approachable gameplay - we assure you that both subject aficionados and casual gamers will find this mixture most entertaining. Our priority is to make an approachable game without compromising its key economical and strategical features - says Szymon Janus, the CEO of INTERMARUM. Race To Mars will hit KickStarter in just a couple of weeks, and we hope that with the support of our fans we'll be able to create a much more detailed product.

Since we aim to deliver the best quality, we're developing the game in close cooperation with scientists from a Polish space industry company, Kosmonauta.net; and we're using Unity, the leading multiplatform game engine, thanks to this we'll be able to deliver top quality content.

FEATURES
  • Shape your own path to Mars: satellites or a space station?
  • Discover more than two hundred pioneering technologies
  • Fight for a larger budget for your space program with the help of your fans and media
  • Expand your program: profit from commercial, scientific and military contracts

probably got greenlit due to the popularity of KSP... Either way, it's looking good.

I prefer the look, style and gameplay of BASPM from what I have seen of your game to date, but I will keep an eye out for the new stuff you bring out, as it is a genre I like.

I think Race To Mars is a strange title. I suppose if it was a competition in the same vein as Amundsen and Scott that could be rather interesting if it was for honour and prestige. If you had a rival or two trying to get there first it could be interesting trying to see what they are up to and keep ahead of them. But the main challenge of going to Mars is surely the actual trip not the management of the development process. I look forward to seing how you plan to reflect that part in terms of gameplay.

Anyway good luck on your game development and I will keep an eye out for future developments.

Nats: About BASPM game – we don’t think of it as a competition. They focus on fiction versions of history and solutions from the 60’s and later. We on the other hand focus on aspects of conducting a company, as well as developing current technologies. It is also clear for us that we go beyond the technical level of BASPM game when it comes to gameplay or the quality of GUI design. Those are just two different games and we have really not much in common. I hope new videos and new build will convince you of that.

Nats, thanks for your comment. We are aware that we don’t make updates as often as we planned, which we are sorry for. The reason for this is that we are financing the production on our own and we have limited founds for its development. After getting on Steam it was possible to release the game in Early Access. Also some publishers has contacted us – they were interested in publishing Race To Mars in retail in their countries. It was a great opportunity, so we decided to focused on developing overall project rather than preparing new builds every few weeks. In our team we don’t have any particular person responsible for community and marketing, so we mainly share the news on our facebook profile, which I encourage to follow - http://www.facebook.com/RaceToMars/ We are slowly getting close to finishing what we intend for the new build, so you can expect it soon. I hope our explanations are sufficient for you.

Interested in the concept but the present gameplay looks pretty sparse, if existant at all. Also I dont see any updates recently - I thought there were going to be updates every second week. Are you still planning to go down the Early Access route on Steam because you dont have much if any gameplay to buy into at the moment it seems? Do you you appreciate that Slitherine are doing something very similar called Buzz Aldrins Space Program Manager and are expecting to release the first stage of three planned stages soon? How is you game going to be different to that one - other than you are going to Mars and they are presently going to the moon (with Mars to come in later stages). Finally why should I give you my hardearned money for this game - whats in it for me, whats going to be so good about it, what assurances can you give?
