Surviving Mars Resources Details Are Concrete

Posted on 15 Nov 2017

Upcoming colonist/colony management game Surviving Mars has revealed a little more information about the resources that’ll be available in the game. There’s not much but a joke in the trailer up there but thanks to a dev diary posted by Boian Spasov, on their official forums we get a far more in-depth look at the resource gathering, processing, and usage we can expect in the game when it launches next year.

For fans of the Anno series a lot of it will be familiar; food, metals, rare metals, concrete. Basic building blocks for staying alive and progressing. These basic resources can be refined and “upgraded” into more exotic items like polymers, fuel, and machine parts. But there’ll be waste products too – resource extractors will leave waste rock that has to be transported and dumped so your disposal pipeline needs to be thought of too. You’ll also need money, via colony funding, to request resource drops from Earth.

We highly encourage you to read the dev diaries if you’re into settlement management games – Surviving Mars sounds like it’s shaping up to be a corker.
