Tropico, Victor Vran Developer Announces New Management Strategy Game

Haemimont Games, the developer of Victor Vran and several titles in the Tropico franchise, has announced Surviving Mars, a new management strategy game for the PlayStation 4 and other platforms. The new game will be published by Paradox Interactive.

Here’s an overview of Surviving Mars:

In Surviving Mars, players will lead a colonization effort on the surface of Mars, from the very first rovers and supply drops to the construction of suitable habitats for brave settlers from Earth. Every colonist will be vital to the mission as the colony struggles to gain a foothold where the environment is hostile and resources are scarce. With each success, however, players will gain the ability to expand further, and even establish a thriving society – and lead a new generation that has never known the Earth.

Haemimont Games CEO Gabriel Dobrev said in the announcement’s press release:

“We feel that strategy and management games are at their best when they let the player experience the unique story being told by their decisions, and Surviving Mars is going to have that in a big way. Your colonists aren’t just working to improve production, they’re struggling to survive, and their conflicts and concerns are intense. Surviving Mars lets you understand what your colonists are dealing with on an individual level, and coming up with creative plans for those needs will be a new challenge for our fans.”

An exact release date for Surviving Mars wasn’t announced but it is set to be released sometime in 2018. You can check out the announcement trailer for the game above.
