Unlike creating sprawling metropolises on Earth, it's all about colonizing Mars and surviving the process. It's more of a survival-builder than a traditional Cities: Skylines-like experience. It's a focused game about creating interconnected systems and testing them against the threats of the hostile Mars environment.
Today, publisher Paradox Interactive revealed new details about the game. A new developer diary posted on their forums by Boian Spasov from Haemimont Games revealed information about the concept and study that went into creating life on Mars. The team has also released a video about the same subjects, including visual inspirations and new in-game footage for an early look at the title.
One of the main takeaways from the developer diary has to be Haemimont Games' approach to Surviving Mars. Spasov wrote the following.
Aven Colony and Planetbase are other games on Xbox One which focus on building a colony on another planet. However, neither offered a completely immersive experience due to their repetitive natures. Hopefully, Surviving Mars will succeed on all fronts, especially replayability, given Spasov's statement. Be sure to keep a lookout on Windows Central for more coverage about this game in the coming months.

would be interesting to see this as a pc game too.
"Xbox and PC sci-fi city builder" Unless you are replying in reference to that. Anyway, I'm waiting for this also. Hopefully they release it as play anywhere and have multiplayer.
