Today we've released our brand new installment in the Take On™ simulation video game series, Take On Mars. Available exclusively on Steam (Early Access) and Store.bistudio.com for 12.99 USD/9.99 EUR/8.99 GBP, Take On Mars is one of the 'smaller' and perhaps more experimental projects from our stables. At the same time I think it's also one of the coolest - especially if you're into space exploration like many of the Bohemians Interactiveans. If not, let our passionate Project Lead Martin Melicharek convince you!
For those who hear about Take On Mars for the first time: in short, the game provides you with the opportunity to enlist as a Rover Operator and explore real locations on Mars (check the gameplay trailer below). With a scientific arsenal at your disposal, you will work your way through the numerous Science Missions in each of the locations, unlocking the secrets of Mars' distant past.
And... as with any space exploration mission, the initial launch of Take On Mars is just the start of the journey. By making the game available as an Early Access title on Steam, we hope to create the most dynamic exploration sim game possible. Thus, besides the Space Program campaign and the individual scenarios, the game also comes with a scenario editor, Steam Workshop integration (to be added later) and modding support. Regular updates to the game are to be expected, and all players are welcome to report game issues or provide suggestions to the dedicated TKOM Feedback Tracker.
Of course, we also invite you to the Take On Mars section on the forums. Marti(a)n Melicharek is actively replying to questions, and all of us are very curious to know what you think of the game!
