Deliver Us Mars traps you in space and asks you to save the human race

We are deep in PC game program (opens in new tab) now, with a new trailer for Deliver Us Mars, a sci-fi thriller from the studio that made free us the moon (opens in new tab). KeokeN Interactive’s 2020 game is getting a sequel, and this trailer delves deeper into the dark space landscape you’ll find yourself in.

The story begins 10 years after the first game, after our protagonist was launched towards Mars in a small space capsule and crashed on the gray red planet. The astronaut descends and, accompanied by a small Wheatley-like robot, begins her journey to survive the desolate landscape. As the name suggests, it is similar to the puzzle-based gameplay of Deliver Us The Moon. However, in Deliver Us Mars, we are on a mission to recover ships, known as ARKs, stolen by the mysterious Outward.

Mars is, as usual, dusty and sepia-toned. But flashes of buildings show that colonization began to some extent. There’s no welcome party waiting for you, though. It’s all abandoned. Which beings currently inhabit these places, it is up to us to find out. And our mission to save the ARKs is to save the human race, which is closer than ever to extinction. This is not particularly optimistic mission to Mars.

Surviving on Mars feels intense: although you’ve been sent on the mission with a team, it feels like you’re completely alone on Mars, apart from your robot friend. You have to platform and puzzle through abandoned buildings and across the sandy landscape with pickaxes, rovers and a splash of swimming too. Deliver Us Mars is dropping September 27, 2022 on Steam and the Epic Games Store.

Does anyone know where I can find one of these G-force machines? The ones that spin you too fast? I want to be properly prepared for takeoff.
