It’s time to run in space at the top of virtually any space agency – your choice is the European Space Agency, the United States, Russia and more.
Space.com got an exclusive look at a space agency simulator game “Mars Horizon”, which is available for free on Steam today (October) as part of the Steam Game Festival. The offer will expire on October 13 and will arrive just in time for World Space Week, which ends on Saturday (October 10).
You can create your own space program to explore the solar system by starting a short journey into space and then progressing through milestones such as launching to the moon. In addition to the ESA, the United States and Russia, space agencies are also available for China and Japan, according to a new gameplay trailer released by Arora Digital and The Irregular Corporation.
You also need to be critical of your own “soft skills” and the balance of car risk and reality. Would you rather be afraid of UFOs, or say that there is no hard evidence of aliens? As John F. Kennedy repeatedly said in the early 1900’s, should your audience rally to the challenge of going to the moon? The choice discusses what choices your (and a previous Space.com) article made!)

“On Mars Horizon, players take control of their own space agency with the ultimate goal of touching Mars, the bottom, their base, design rockets, launching schedules and running mission controls.” Statement.
“Players need to manage time, science, public support and of course – funding resources, as they work to complete missions and send their astronauts into space. Players will fight other rival agencies that have the same goal, and work together with them or on their own. May choose to take the initiative.
The game focuses more on space agency management and is less about the physical reality of space missions (such as working in orbit) than the popular game “Carbal Space Program”, allowing you to feel the other side of the space world.
If you do not have access to Steam or prefer to play on other consoles, “Mars Horizon” will soon be launched on other platforms. The game will be available later this fall on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
