JCB Pioneer: Mars is a survival game developed by the independent Atomicom studio. The production was created in cooperation with the JCB company, dealing primarily with the production of agricultural and construction machinery, as well with former NASA agency scientists.
In JCB Pioneer: Mars the player assumes the role of one of the first colonizers of the Red Planet. Due to the fact that the hero landed on its surface in a rescue pod, his primary task is to fight for survival - fortunately, the protagonist can count on the help of a scientist who communicates with him by radio. With time, our hero will develop enough to prepare the ground for the colonization of Mars on a large scale.
In JCB Pioneer: Mars, the action is observed from the third person perspective (TPP). For the purpose of the game, the creators have prepared a vast territory designed on the basis of real maps of Martian terrain, where we can move freely. In order to carry out all different tasks, players need raw materials, which they can obtain using advanced equipment manufactured by JCB - vehicles allowing efficient movement from point A to point B, as well as machines adapted to work in the mine. Once players have the required amount of resources, they are given the opportunity to build a variety of buildings and, as they move forward, also to develop new technologies (such as improvements to tools and vehicles) to help them survive on this planet.
It is important to remember about constant replenishment of oxygen, food and water reserves; the difficult conditions on Mars also affect the gameplay significantly - sandstorms (and the accompanying lightning), as well as meteoroid rains, and irradiated and toxic areas, which are best to be avoided.
JCB Pioneer: Mars was developed in such a way that players can play not only on their own, but also in a company of other people, together creating a more and more prosperous colony.
The high quality of visuals in JCB Pioneer: Mars results from the fact that the game is based on Unreal Engine 4. Also noteworthy is the reach with detail environment as well as the realistic lighting effects and detailed suits and vehicles.
