Built on the core of the award-winning Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island, First Martians: Adventures on the Red Planet pits players against the hostile Martian environment and a whole host of new adventures and challenges. The immersive experience is further enhanced with an integrated app that maintains the balance and challenge throughout. Players have the option of taking on the design as a series of separate games, in a custom campaign mode in which each successive game builds on the last.
Mars, the red planet. A hostile, unforgiving environment, dust everywhere and an unbreathable atmosphere, sounds like the perfect location for an adventure right? Well MCEI (Mars Colonisation and Expansion Initiative) seem to think so. The year is 2029 and MCEI have sent you, the first human to walk on the red planet, to lay the groundwork for the next stage of colonisation of the red planet.
First Martians is a 1-4 player co-operative story driven adventure. Players are given a mission with a number of objectives to complete over a set number of rounds. The game is driven by an app which takes you through the turn order and throws some unpredictable events which the players have to deal with. The game offers three standalone missions and a campaign mode. One of the campaign modes also offers a legacy aspect to the game. The game comes with four different playable astronauts all of which have different skills that can be activated.
