In Mars Horizon the player is tasked with leading a major space agency from the dawn of the space age through to humanity’s journey to Mars. Players run a government space agency from when the first rockets launched into the atmosphere, right through to the first crewed mission to Mars. Research new tech, expand your agency base, build rockets, send satellites into orbit, and launch a variety of missions. As the player, you’re in charge of every element of the journey into space.
The game is supported by the UK Space Agency and the European Space Agency (ESA). Design Director Tomas Rawlings said:
“Working with ESA is a massive bonus for the Mars Horizon universe. Having access to real launch control specialists who can explain the real life pressures and challenges they face will help make this game as authentic as we can. With the upcoming ExoMars mission in 2020 this is a fantastic time for us to be working with the agency as they put the final stages of preparation on this launch.
The involvement of the ESA is a double win for the gameplay as we’re not only getting to talk to people planning actual missions to Mars but also the people who plan the strategy of the agency itself – all of which we’re planning to use to help shame the gameplay. To say I’m excited by this partnership is an understatement, I’m (excuse the pun) over the Moon!
We have also had such great support from the UK Space Agency who as a member of the ESA introduced us to them. It will help launch this title to the next level.”
