What the developers have to say:

“Race To Mars is in early development phase, which means at the moment you are not able to see it in its full glory. But day by day we are working on making it the best turn based economic strategy you have ever played. A lot of features is still under construction, but right now you can already check out how your space company might develop. Our Alpha Version is available on PC, Mac and Linux. We are planning to release update builds at least once a month each time making the game more awesome. Don’t forget to check our facebook profile to see what’s coming next. We encourage you to give us your feedback.

New Update - Contracts & Dotations

In today's update we want to show you two new features - contracts and grants. These are ways to get funding in game and are key for the game's mechanics. It is another step towards integrating the game into a final product - there will be a lot more contracts than available now, so there will be a lot of choices.

Currently due to the Project Manager implementation being incomplete, we suggest you prices worth offering for contracts - in the future it will be dependant on a PM's skill.

We hope that with every new update you will be able to glimpse the vision of what we intend Race To Mars to be and that the game will give you even more fun.

About This Game

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.
