When this game will be on steam? also, please update the launch date, it says "Late Spring 2013" (i do believe that is the date for launch in steam, right?)

Working on version 2, now in Alpha testing, code name Frontier. Features full sandbox mode with player built bases and dynamic economy. All the things the community has asked for. Visit to get info on the progress. Thanks to all for the support on Challenger.

This game looks very interesting, I love the concept and I love gameplay idea. Also multiplayer seems like a great idea for it

OK am I missing something here? It says this game is Greenlit, but I see no discussion on when this will be released on Steam. If I am missing something, will someone please enlighten me?

I would like to get it on Mac but we are working out the details for some upgrades and a version 2 design. Time is a premium. Mac is not forgot just alot of engine changes to get it to work.
corpsgrinder360 Mar 13, 2014 @ 6:08pm 
is the game going to be on mac osx soon?

Users have suggested changes to the game. We are working on some modifications and upgrades to make the play experience better.

gregg After you have the base set up you are free to do what ever you want. Future versions will have player built bases.

gregg.t.robertson If you actually were sent to mars to set up a base, you would have to do what you were supposed to.
hdortch  [author] Feb 14, 2014 @ 7:40am 
We are working on integration of the Steam code now, game should be ready in the next week or two. Thanks
gregg.t.robertson Feb 9, 2014 @ 2:35pm 
I checked this out on their website, and it looks like there is little to no room for individual exploration or innovation. I could be wrong, but the game seems very linear (i.e., you have to follow the gameplan or . . . , well, there doesn't seem to be an "or".)

"geekchris: This game needs to be out on steam..." < It's been Greenlit yesterday, finally.
Allegedly Nerdy Feb 1, 2014 @ 10:58pm 
This game needs to be out on steam...They realeased Mars Astronaut Rescue, which is a pile of shit compared to this game, so we should this not exist? Come on people, let's get this thing on steam!

I'm interested to experience, if even just in game format, the life our settlers will have on Mars. Anxious to play your sim!

Уникальная игра я бы с радостью купил бы, проробатывайте свойства модулей и игровой мир (пользователь greenlith)
[CG] Dr. Ross Dec 13, 2013 @ 9:01pm 
oh an you also need to include d3dx9_41.dll and x3daudio1_6.dll as an optional download for those who have problems with them, just so they know they are getting a safe version of the .dll
[CG] Dr. Ross Dec 13, 2013 @ 8:08pm 
as you can tell in the video, it would be a lot of fun, but if your thinking that it is something that will be extremely easy and laid back well... its called challenger for a reason lol.

Any chance to see on Linux ?

I downloaded the demo. it won't run, saying "...X3DAudio1_6.dll is missing...". What is that?

Sounds more fun than Alpha Centauri.

Anyone got a server? I am up for some teamwork.
Truthowl Sep 28, 2013 @ 1:22am 
Up voted but no way will I pay $30 for it. $10? Yeah but not more. Love the idea though.
Sei Sep 27, 2013 @ 2:37pm 
Oof. I just had one of my generators fail on phase three of a mission. That certainly makes things interesting. I ended up setting my second generator to power life support instead of the failed RSG1, and hopefully that will keep me going. I don't seem to have the materials/parts to make a replacement part yet, so hopefully I can manage to keep it together. I really enjoy this game from time to time, and I'd say it's well worth getting, even if you just get it from the site without waiting for a Steam release.
SquarelyCircle Sep 19, 2013 @ 12:48pm 
I love it. My requests:
1) Improve animations -- in the video it seemed like animations were fast and choppy.
2) I couldn't figure out how to get out of the passenger seat of the rover. It seems like the controls need to be more intuitive.
Audio.... well... just audio.
