Take On Mars is OUT NOW

Take On Mars is OUT NOW
Skip years of astronaut training, political debate, and budget cuts



Hello fellow Martians!

Graduating from Steam Early Access, we're proud to finally announce the official release of Take On Mars. The special milestone is celebrated with a launch trailer, highlighting the many ‘benefits’ of playing Take On Mars over alternative options of space exploration.

https://youtu.be/TRLWO8POCCI
Starting out as mod for Carrier Command: Gaea Mission, Take On Mars began life as a passion project by our Project Lead Martin Melichárek, who was already working at Bohemia Interactive at the time. After deciding to make it into a full game, Take On Mars launched on Steam Early Access soon after in 2013. The initial focus of the game was on Mars rovers and landers. However, over the course of development, the scope of the project increased significantly to also include a manned mission part, and thus capturing the exploration of Mars in its entirety.

Take On Mars Project Lead Martin Melichárek:
“For as long as I can remember I’ve been fascinated with space exploration, and particularly Mars. Being able to make this game has been like a dream come true. It took a bit longer than anticipated, and it’s been wild ride that’s tested the patience of both us and our Early Access subscribers, but, it was a ride worth taking. We, as a team, thank all of our loyal fans, those who have never doubted us, in helping us make this dream a reality!”.

See you on Mars!

Take On Mars officially launches on February 9th

Hello fellow Martians!

We're happy to announce that Take On Mars officially launches (and thus graduates from Steam Early Access) on February 9th!



On top of this announcement, today we've also deployed a brand new teaser trailer, offering a sneak peek at the recently introduced Manned Mission story campaign. Here, you take on the role of astronaut Mark Willis, one of the crew members in the first manned mission to Mars. Launched from Earth in 2028, the mission reaches Mars orbit a year later. However, during the descent into Mars' atmosphere, things go wrong, and connection to Earth is lost. When contact cannot be re-established, the crew is declared MIA. Yet there is one survivor: you.

Marooned on Mars, Mark’s first priority is to survive. This means managing resources such as oxygen, water, and food, and creating shelter from Mars’ unforgiving sandstorms and solar events. By relying on a background as a botanist and engineer, you will have to extract raw materials from the Martian soil, refine them into real compounds, and make use of a 3D printer to construct the equipment and machines needed for a chance to return home.

To already turn mankind into the first multi-planetary species, aspiring astronauts can still pick up the Early Access version of Take On Mars at a slightly lower price than it will at release. For more information about the game, be sure to check out our Steam store page and visit the official website at www.takeonmars.com.

Let the countdown begin!

Key Features

  • Space Program Campaign Chapter 1: Robotics Campaign
    Explore the Red Planet from the perspective of a science-driven space agency. Command rovers, landers, or probes, over a distance of hundreds of millions of kilometers - and collect important scientific data about Mars. Research new technologies to gain new equipment.
  • Space Program Campaign Chapter 2: Manned Mission Story Campaign
    Take on the role of astronaut Mark Willis, one of the crew members in the first manned mission to Mars. When things go wrong during the descent into Mars’ atmosphere, and the connection with Earth is lost, the crew is declared missing in action. However, there’s one survivor: you.

  • Sandbox Survival Multiplayer
    Invite your friends in drop-in/drop-out online multiplayer, and establish the foundations of a human colony on Mars. Work together to extract raw materials from Martian soil, refine them into real compounds, and use the 3D Printer to build your habitat panel by panel. Develop a power grid, pressurize living areas, utilize botany to grow crops, and operate various vehicles and machines to keep you and your crew alive.
  • Real Life Locations
    Travel across a vast, unforgiving Martian terrain with locations based on actual satellite data from famous locations such as Victoria, Gale, and Cydonia Crater. Be prepared for extreme weather and sandstorms, and watch out for radiation exposure from Mars’ solar events.
