It’s not the planet, nor the chocolate bar – Mars is the new action RPG in development at independent game developers Spiders (those behind Silverfall and Earth Awakening), which already makes the game a pretty interesting title. And it gets even better when we find out some first details of it (plus a cool presentation video available here).
Back to the game, it will put the players into the shoes of Seth (an elite soldier) or Pandora (a technomancer, whatever that is!), which means that there are already two different approaches to the game, since each character plays independently from the other, and has different backgrounds, skills and features.
Gameplay-wise, Mars will blend rhythmic aerial battles (beat’em up style) with a deep storyline set in a dark, post-apocalyptic universe and, of course, some quality RPG elements. The game is set for release in 2010 for Xbox 360, PC and PS3 and I can say that I’m here, waiting to hear more about it.
