Mines of Mars explores procedurally generated red planet


1:00 PM on 08.05.2013



If the idea of exploring a realistic facsimile of Mars isn't your jam, then perhaps the more fantastic approach that Mines of Mars takes will be a bit more tantalizing. Developer Crescent Moon Games describes it as a "procedural atmospheric mining game" and cites both Metroid and Motherlode as influences.

The music in the trailer definitely has a Metroid feel to it, though the art style reminds me more of Blocks That Matter than anything else. Mines of Mars promises a variety of extraterrestrial flora and fauna, as well as an explanation for why life on Mars had been hidden thus far. Nothing gets me excited like quasi-plausible alien life, especially some so close to home.

Mines of Mars is currently seeking approval on Steam Greenlight.

Ironically, the Kickstarter for Hollow Knight looks solid

I have had my eye on Hollow Knight for a few days, but had not yet pulled the trigger on highlighting it. It is a pretty 2D action game (though the color palette is a bit muted for my taste) starring some sort of insect-pers...more

Solve your own murder in Why Am I Dead At Sea

You have been murdered, and you are now a ghost. It is up to you to solve the mystery of your own death. No, not like that. No, not like that either. Okay actually, it is sort of like Ghost Trick. It looks like the spirit in...more

Need something free to pass the time? 0h h1 is sort of like binary sudoku

I have always been an unapologetic fan of Minesweeper. I have been playing it for longer than any other single game, and I will be playing it as long as I can imagine. It never changes in any fundamental way, but it always wo...more
