Take On The Martian In Take On Mars

At first glance, Take On Mars [official site] seems like the closest thing we have to a tie-in game for The Martian. You could almost call it Mark Watney Simulator 2015, especially now that manned missions are in the game and let you do things like build Martian bases, grow crops, and drive rugged rovers over the desolate Martian surface.

Taaaaake Onnnn Maaars (Take! On! Mars!) Footage

Every time I read the title Take On Mars, I immediately get this song stuck in my head - just with Mars-ified lyrics and imagery. It is magnificent. If you could see inside my brain, you'd immediately call the police but then also be like, "Oh, but that re-imagined '80s pop song is pretty neat." As a game, however, Bohemia's out-of-this-world effort bears only a…
