  2. A beautiful new adventure

    Surviving Mars is a wonderful addition to the Paradox games family. The game is a love letter to science fiction and science simultaneously. It has a beautiful ascetic and music. But, also offers a surprising amount of thought regarding the future of humanity trying to ask the player questions about a future we are creating.
