Set your foot on Mars, where fantastic adventures await you. First Martians: Adventures on the Red Planet tells a magnificent history of humans struggling to survive on a hostile frontier. A series of missions form *two separate campaigns*. Take meaningful decisions and face their consequences! Experience thrills and awe as the plot unfolds! Additionally, the box features *6 standalone missions*. Choose your preferred difficulty level and mode of play: who do you want to be today? A scientist, an explorer, or an engineer?
The game provides massive amounts of replayability, while at the same time, the story will always reflect your decisions.
Built on the core of the award-winning Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island, Portal Games’ First Martians: Adventures on the Red Planet pits players against the hostile Martian environment and a whole host of new adventures and challenges.
The components in the box are complemented by a free app which contains hundreds of events and adventures to immerse you in the story. The app guides you through the storyline, providing information about the results of your actions or various happenings in the HUB – and is also the means of communication between your settlement and the Mars Colonization and Expansion Initiative (MCEI) on Earth.
The in-built mechanisms allow you to adjust the gameplay experience to your needs by choosing a mission type or difficulty. When you choose a mission type (for standalone missions only), you decide whether you want to be a scientist, an explorer, or an engineer – different mission have different goals and rely heavily on research, exploration, or building skills. Choosing one of three difficulty levels affects the consequences of in-game events. Whether you are a hard-core gamer looking for extreme experiences or a casual player more interested in the story, the difficulty options will tailor the gameplay to your needs. Also, the app makes future updates and adding new content easier.
Using feedback from early adopters of the games, Portal Games has created an Almanac in PDF form that answers frequently asked questions, more detailed examples, and even some errata. Feel free to use this for in-store game nights and feel free to share it with your customers.
