Title: Surviving Mars
Post by: Reg on May 31, 2018, 09:22:51 AM
We talked a little about Surviving Mars in the "What are you playing" thread and most people had heard that it had crappy documentation and refused to try it until that was fixed.
Just to let you know, the latest patch features a decent five part tutorial that tells you everything you need to know to get started with your colony. I played through it myself and if it had existed when I first started playing I wouldn't have had to watch YouTube tutorials.
If you decide to try it just accept the default settings on your first game. They select a sponsor and commander that give you a lot of benefits to make your first colony more likely to succeed. Oh, and pick an easy landing spot with lots of resources and not too high a disaster rating. Expect to crash and burn a few times anyway but that's half the fun.
