Description

It’s your first day at a new school. Every day is your first day at a new school. Every night the world ends.

Mars Underground is an apocalyptic adventure game where you relive the same day over and over.

The player attempts to solve brain damaging mysteries and uncover multiple potential endings as they explore the possibilities of this time loop. With each cycle new items can be picked up and topics unlocked.​

Take experimental prescription drugs. Talk to a toilet. Get hit by a car. Humiliate yourself repeatedly. All in the name of figuring out what on earth is going on.

 

Mars Underground is a narrative focused gaming experience that favours exploration rather than fast reflexes. 

  • Time loop premise that explores the possibilities of branching stories and multiple endings in interactive fiction.

  • Game design that mixes classic adventure game conventions with sandbox-style gameplay. As the player discovers new topics and acquires new items the world opens up and they can try more things each day.

  • All original, dynamic music soundtrack.

  • Simple, easy to grasp gameplay that can be fully played with either a keyboard, a controller or touch input.

The Mars Underground demo let's you play through a single cycle of the time loop. There's a lot to see and do, you might want to play through it a few times...

The demo is currently available for PC or Mac and there is a HTML5 version that can play directly in your browser. The final game will also be available for Linux, iOS and Android.
