What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“In order to establish a close connection with the community earlier, and to make this game of colonizing Mars more scientific and realistic from the community's feedback, I decided to use the Early-Access mode.

After all, Colonizing and Terraforming Mars is a big job. Although I have made this game the most interesting content I can think of, my idea of Mars is not necessarily authoritative. There must be cooler and more meaningful, realistic ideas in the community.

Therefore, I hope that through this mode, more realistic elements can be added to the game.
If you happen to have the idea of colonizing/terraforming Mars that you consider should appear in this game. Please don’t hesitate to let me know, at least leave it in the comment section. I will continue to update the appropriate content into the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The Early-Access status lasts about six months to one year.
By then I should have updated most of the feedback about colonizing/transforming Mars into the game, and humans may have really begun to colonize Mars.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will definitely have more gameplay and plot events from the community. In addition, I also plan to open up the workshop in the full version, so that players can create more content conveniently.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“I have made the coolest content I can think of into the current Early Access version.
To be more specific, the current game has a complete colonization/modification of Mars content, a complete gameplay cycle system, and a certain number of game plots, missions, etc.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Since it is not known how much new game content will be obtained from the community, I cannot give an accurate answer to this question at this time. It can only be said that there will probably be a lot of new content, and the price will gradually increase.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I will read every review carefully. In addition, I will set up a special area in the forum to facilitate players to discuss and exchange about game content.
If the community remains active for a certain time, I will open a creative workshop to unlock the ability for players to make MODs.”

Hello friends, I’m an indie game developer. You may call me Tholus. Reshaping Mars is a mars-themed construction & strategy simulation game developed all by myself

In the game, players will start from scratch. Mine minerals, secure energy and water, farm and store food in order to construct residences to house and feed immigrants and more on your journey to colonize Mars.

Humanities and Tech Tree

Low air pressure, strong ambient radiation, sandstorms and numerous natural phenomena, coupled with limited resources, are great obstacles to the Martian base's expansion.
Hence, you must conduct research to create better technology and increase Mars' productivity. This will strengthen the Martian base in turn. You may make use of the diverse options of the tech tree to perform research into technology that meets the needs of their colony.

With the continuous influx of residents, their daily lives will be marked with their own sorrows and joys, as well as all kinds of needs. Leisure facilities and a welfare policy must be established along with proper living conditions that take care of all aspects of their lives. With a happy population, success is but a step away from the plans to reshape Mars.

Rich variety of random events

Where people roam, so will there be events and incidents that punctuate their lives. You will encounter all kinds of random events: what is the intent of the secretive stowaways to Mars and where they come from. What plans do the many factions back on Terra have for the fledgling Martian base? What is behind the mysterious faction that makes itself known on Mars out of the blue? What are the origins of the wreck stamped with 'xSpac' and a dog's head emblem? These mysteries are all waiting to be discovered and unraveled.

Real-time Strategy

Accidents happen and conflict are par for the course. What better way to secure the Martian base and resist the invasion than to build an armed force that defends Mars? This is the moment for all the cruiser tanks, ripper missile tanks, raptor fighters to shine! Issue commands to your armed unit in real time and duke it out with your enemies!

Educating with entertainment

All in-game locations are real Martian geological features and approximately sited in the same locations (E.g. Valles Marineris, Acidalia Planitia and the Tempe Fossae etc.).
Even if your best attempts at making a success of the Martian base go wrong, you would be learning about the lay of the land of Mars. Who knows if it will ever come in useful on your own adventures to Mars someday?

Multi-factional diplomacy

Interactions between the Martian base and other factions will evolve as the game progresses. You will meet representatives of many different powers and factions. Whether Mars shall forge strong alliances, conduct fair trade or light the beacons of war is all in your hands.

I hope that this game will bring you on a unique journey surviving and navigating colony life on Mars as a pioneer. If the concept of this game piques your interest, please refer to the real-life plans to reshape Mars and show your much-needed support for the people behind these plans.
