"Surviving Mars" Released (17 March)
Survivng Mars is the new strategy, base building game from Haemimont Games and Paradox Interactive. I was lucky enough to get a preview copy of the game and WOW. Loved it!
I am not naturally adept at these sorts of games (and made plenty of mistakes before I got the hang of it) but I really enjoyed the Sims-esque ability to recruit settlers with different character traits. Needless to say, I ended up with my first batch having a silly tendancy to be sexy (i kid you not) party animals. Then the game told me i could have no more settlers till the initial lot survived. Bugger. Should have recruited a medic, I guess.
See below for my tribute to those first settlers. (Disclaimer - I am genetically incapable of singing in tune.)
