Today we give into your hands the next update - list of changes below:

- Big refactor of game code. Fixed couple of bugs.

- Refactored code responsible for managing state of game panels.

- Moved creation of the company from game screen, to menu screen. Removed starting conference - instead you have the option to select your company CEO from 3 options. Selected CEO will affect the initial image of your company. The image will change during the course of the game.

- Changes to the game interface. End turn button was moved to the bottom left corner. Timeline aligned to the left side of the screen - shows now more months into the future. Inbox button moved to the bottom right side of the screen. Added three toggle switches between timeline and inbox button - tough they dont have any action attached yet.

Best,

Over dit spel

Race To Mars is a turn-based, space company simulation game. Become the head of the newly established “New Space” company whose goal would be to establish a colony on Mars. You begin as a startup - develop cutting edge aerospace technologies and use them to achieve orbit and fly beyond Earth vicinity, blazing the trail of a space pioneer and leaving the competition far behind on your way to victory.

Our game will achieve two goals - promote the outer space industry and satisfy all economy game fans. Race To Mars combines the realism of a spaceport management sim and approachable gameplay - we assure you that both subject aficionados and casual gamers will find this mixture most entertaining. Our priority is to make an approachable game without compromising its key economical and strategical features - says Szymon Janus, the CEO of INTERMARUM.

Since we aim to deliver the best quality, we're developing the game in close cooperation with scientists from a Polish space industry company, Kosmonauta.net; and we're using Unity, the leading multiplatform game engine, thanks to this we'll be able to deliver top quality content.

Note this game has now a new publisher the review below is only historical.
This review will be updated once it becomes clear if the publisher (One More Level) can put the project on track.


--

Race to Mars is a game focussed on strategy and management which is being developed by a company who has no clue what management actually does.

Network administrators who have no clue how to run a basic mysqli server as there own forum (http://intermarum.com/forum) is down for months right now due to either a botched server or a simple configuration error.

No money for marketing or PR as there is almost zero moderation or communication by any representative here on the steam discussions forum. Even worse in the past a representative that actually told customers to use there social media to contact them as they have no time to check there own forum.

A mismatch in patch/update information resulting in a changelog that is now missing 1 year of actual information. Yes this information is partially provided in the news section but who came up with the bright idea to forget to update there own made forum post regarding changelogs.

Net up a (lead) designer who due to pregnancy is not able to perform the tasks in a timely fashion or at all. No blame to the designer here and I wish her all the best. But how can someone in project lead/management forget to hire a back-up developer as maternity leave is not something that happens overnight.


How a company operates often dictates how well the project will be as it stands this game has no change of nearing completion. There is a clear lack of knowledge teamwork, motivation, resources and possible funding. With a ratio of 75% -+ negative customer feedback even if some or all of the problems would be fixed it would take a long time for the game to receive noteworthy attention or generate revenue for the company.

Who should buy this game
People who are willing to gamble there money against very low odds.
People who feel connected to project vision.

Who should not buy this game
People who like to play a game.

Well there are a vast number of bugs unaddressed, no frequent updates to content... Another Green light project that just took my money and hasn't done anything with it... I wish this game would be finsihed but as it sit's now I've got a ton of UI problems that keep me from even trying to play the game.

after the first hour i must say im dissapointed, the interface is very clunky (no closing windows on esc, restricted window scrolling no mousewheel), its absolutely Horrible with no option to turn down music/audio. I see alot of potential here but as off right now it is Far FAR from worth its price, around 20 euro is just so far overshot for what this actually is, half the price and it would be a bargain.

Completely unplayable. The concept is great and in theory, the game could be excellent. However, the "developers" seem to have forgotten about the game. No updates, no news, no hope. I'd quite likely change this into a positive if the "developers" cared and got involved with what players are left.

I understand that the "developers" have been through a bit of a rough patch, but if they aren't interested in the community, they should not have released this as early access. A real shame.
