Mars 2030 - Advent RPG


One year before we started work on Mars 2030 work began on a giant open world game called Dwarfscape. We have since made it much bigger and put years of fantasy RPG love into it:

Biome 1 of 8: The Forest of Humanity


Biome 2 of 8: The Putrid Bogs

Read the Mars 2030 User Guide! [1.4]

The development plan for Mars 2030 extends to the amazing year 2030! We hope you jump in now and check back here for the latest dev notes.

Mars 2030 [1.4.1] | Dev Log
  • New! Simulated Cave Ice Mining
  • Updated Starbase Mars graphics
  • Rogue Asteroid impacts now cause massive damage, instead of certain doom
  • Asteroid randomization tweaked slightly
  • Fixed: bug that could cause a "ghost" sleeping Rat to remain after death
  • Fixed: rare glitch that could cause Moon Rover to vanish on some PCs
  • Reduced the spawn rate of navigation arrows
  • 5-Stasis Mines now awarded by default in Moonbase Down
  • Ice Miner Achievement added:



Mars 2030 [1.4.2] | Dev Log
  • Buffed Sim Rats durability to radiation
  • Added 1x help window to Starbase Mars & Moonbase Rover
  • Added help button: Lower right hand corner of the main window
  • Lab & App windows now auto-close if the mission fails
  • Close button on the Interior Map was made more visible
  • Touch screen GUI no longer functions unless selected in options

Mars 2030 [1.4] has arrived and it’s the most fun version of the game yet. Two new mini-games were released in 2018, making this year the largest content expansion since launch. We have also continued to smooth out overall game play based directly on player feedback.

We are excited about emulating Cave Ice Mining on Mars over months of in-game flight time. It's a rewarding progression between hazards and there is an element of chance to your results. Once an ice vein is depleted, the number of ice units collected is added to your mission score x100.

Get started mining by pressing the list icon on the ship status window:



In case you missed the release of Moonbase Down, arcade mode is included for free with Mars 2030! Support development and gain early access to Sandbox mode by purchasing it seperately:
