About the game
QuoteSurviving Mars is a sci-fi settlement builder all about colonizing Mars and surviving the process. Choose a space agency for resources and financial support before determining a location for your colony. Build domes and infrastructure, research new possibilities and utilize drones to unlock more elaborate ways to shape and expand your settlement. Cultivate your own food, mine minerals or just relax by the bar after a hard day’s work. Most important of all, though, is keeping your colonists alive. Not an easy task on a strange new planet.

There will be challenges to overcome. Execute your strategy and improve your colony’s chances of survival while unlocking the mysteries of this alien world. Are you ready? Mars is waiting for you.

Oh hell yes, I need this. Excited doesn't even begin to explain my feelings right now. Linux is listed very clearly as a release platform.

Paradox are doing some really amazing publishing deals for Linux games, this is fantastic news. I love colony building sims and on Linux we really don't have much choice, so hopefully it will be good. It's due sometime next year, so we have a while to wait. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Haemimont Games are the developers of the Tropico series and Victor Vran.
I’m afraid I won’t enjoy it much if it is similar to Paradox games or Tropico 5.

I skipped on Victor Vran because I am not too eager to play games that force me to play a male character, at least not unless premade female characters become just as normal.

Paradox's grand strategy games are not for everyone, I concede that (I love them, though). But what's wrong with Tropico 5? It's nowhere as complex as the average Paradox game. I had fun with it, at least.

Sorry but what the hell? There are games where you need gender lock because of the story, Victor Vran is pretty much one of those. Ohh noo why do i have to play as female character in Tomb Raider? ...

thats just seriously stupid if you ask me. Why does the gender in games matter at all. If its designed this way its how you play it, if it has a choice to choose, then you choose what you want to play.

Tropico 5 had a too long and tedious tutorial that I never finished. It just wasn’t fun.

You sound upset. People have preferences. People like to play games with leads they can identify with. And yeah, there have been complaints by dudes about games that have female leads, even though there still aren't that many of them.

I've only played a bit of Victor Vran, and honestly so far I haven't really come across much that really requires him to be this particular dude. He's a bit of a cipher, you could swap him out for pretty much any gruff, detached character and have very much the same game. Is there something later on that contradicts that?

If someone doesn’t like to play male characters in games then it’s just the way it is and no it’s not stupid. For what it’s worth I also dislike playing male characters in most games as they often look like shitamerican football team captains.

Since it's not their own Paradox Studio who have some serious issues with Steam lock-in in all their recent games, do they plan to release it on GOG? Other games from Haemimont came out there (Victor Vran for example).
