Take On Mars Goes Electric With Power Update

In what can only be described as a Mars-a-thon week, we've witnessed not only the release of Ridley Scott's book-to-film interpretation of The Martian, but also the news that science boffins have discovered evidence of water up there on the Red Planet. On the ball as ever, Arma makers Bohemia Interactive have now added to the Mars Madness by releasing a Power Update to their…

Feature: Mohawks And Martians, Pt 1

Former Civilization IV Lead On Mars Game, Revitalizing RTS

Mohawk Games is an excellent name for a company. And so it is that former Civilization IV lead designer and Spore man Soren Johnson approaches me sporting the company haircut. It's a recent trim job for the old headshrub, he tells me, but he wears it well. However, the brain beneath the mohawk - the mind behind some of strategy gaming's greatest greats - is…

Mars Topography Photography: Lacuna Passage

They are men who pilot lander modules, collecting cargo and data, spinning gracefully through the sky and plunging into the planet's surface.

Mars On Tracks: NASA’s Unity-Powered Curiosity

That I'll never get to visit another planet (or moon; hell, I'll take moon) is one of the great sadnesses of my life. Maybe, if I'm very lucky, Richard Branson will buy RPS and give me a free ride in his spaceship one day, but he's probably too busy picking up women. So, for now, I must settle with exploring a Unity-powered, browser-based, explorable recreation…

Life On Mars? Yes. Albeit Blue.

While we bitterly watch Jim have adventures at GDC via the medium of excitable text-messages, the rest of RPS sit forlornly and watch the news feeds. We need a holiday. Which is one reason why this caught our eye - Avatar Reality are showing off their Crysis-engine powered Blue Mars over there. It's set in 2177 on a terraformed Mars... and, no, come back. This…
