There’s been a lot of craze as of late in space travel, thanks in no small part to the actions of SpaceX. We’ve seen huge strides in things like self-landing rockets and various other launches. It’s a good time to be a space fan, not just for real-life accomplishments but for gaming as well. Per Aspera, a Mars terraforming simulator from Raw Fury and Tlön Industries is now available on Steam and GOG for $29.99. There’s also a 10% launch discount, letting early adopters take advantage of an early sale. You can check out the launch trailer for Per Aspera below.
What is Per Aspera?
Per Aspera tells the story of a human race that’s long tried to terraform Mars. Each attempt has been met with failure, leaving nothing but husks of mankind’s expansion in its wake. This time though, things will be different. As artificial intelligence AMI, it’s up to you to explore Mars’ sprawling surface and set up a liveable colony for the people of Earth. This surface is based entirely on NASA’s geographical data, letting you explore a rendition of Mars almost as if you’re terraforming the real thing. The question is, how will you terraform Mars?
Like many simulators of this style, Per Aspera requires you to balance a lot when it comes to managing your colony. You’ll need to build various structures that tailor to the land’s needs, along with the needs of those who’ll inhabit it. How you choose to manage your colonist’s needs is up to you, further shaping your story of terraforming the planet. You’ll also be able to research new techniques to terraform the world even better than before. Per Aspera promises plenty of depth, where your choices in running your colony matter with a bit of fun along the way.
