Terraforming Mars is a board game developed by FryxGames. The title takes place in the year 2400 on Mars. The players are attempting to terraform (adapt for humans to live on) the planet by competing over access to resources and goods for the corporations they represent. The virtual version of the game was developed by studio Luckyhammers in cooperation with Asmodee Digital.
The gameplay in Terraforming Mars is turn-based. While representing a selected corporation, each player is constructing buildings, conducting research of new technologies, and mining resources. The objective of the game is to make the planet inhabitable. It is done gradually – with new inventions, it becomes possible to melt ice, create flora that generates oxygen, and to plant forests. All players are competing over influence and domination by making the situation of their opponents harder.
Terraforming Mars can be played alone (against AI-controlled bots) or with other players.
Terraforming Mars features quite attractive graphics. The board is represented as a three-dimensional planet model (similar to a globe) and the possible actions are represented by illustrated cards.
