You can get Surviving Mars free on the Epic Games Store next week. This epic city-builder by Haemimont Games is a boatload of fun, and soon you’ll be able to pick it up without paying a cent!
If you haven’t yet played Surviving Mars, you’ve missed out on a pretty good city builder. The premise is quite simple: you are going to colonize Mars for mankind. You’ll start out by choosing what you’re going to put in your first rocket ship, largely focusing on drones and the resources needed to get started. After you have some of the basics set up, it will be time to send your first humans to live on the red planet.
It sounds simple enough, but there are several additional layers of challenge. Of course, there are the city-building aspects — you’ll have to keep all of your people alive with enough food, water, and oxygen. They’ll also need housing and things to do, both for work and recreation.
The challenge is deepened even further with “Mysteries”. These are special events that take place at some point in the game, mixing up the gameplay and potentially granting the player a permanent bonus once they’re completed. Whether it’s a strange alien artifact or a newly-developed technology, the Mysteries make every game of Surviving Mars interesting.
Get Minit Before You Get Surviving Mars Free
While you can get Surviving Mars free next Thursday, the currently available games have rotated out and Minit is now available. This is an intriguing (and also adorable) little game that takes place 60 seconds at a time, hence its name.
