Prepare for your journey to Mars by building and managing a colony within the safety of Earth’s atmosphere. Hone your abilities to create a thriving community, terraform the land to suit your needs, and prove your capability for a larger mission. Get ready to launch in this prologue to Farlanders.
Strategize, build, and manage your resources as you experience first-hand what it takes to create a successful settlement prior to your launch to Mars. Configure your colony around challenging terrain, construct your base, and use specialized tools to terraform Earth to your needs. Prove that you are capable of taking your mission interplanetary. After all, practice makes perfect.
Create a viable habitat for your would-be settlers by building water pumps, establishing farms on fertile ground, harnessing the power of the sun, and mining for precious minerals. Don’t forget to conserve your resources to create power cables and pipes that will connect the whole of your settlement!
Use a turn and select a terraforming kit to shape the landscape to your colony’s advantage. Need a water source? Place a water drop tile into a canyon and watch the surrounding flat land become fertile. Need suitable terrain to build wind turbines? Use a terraforming kit to raise mountains that will help increase your energy production.
Terraforming tiles have preset shapes, so be careful when configuring where to place them! You may end up with ice if you place a water drop tile on flat ground instead of a canyon. Be wise in your choices and always plan two steps ahead!
No two maps are ever the same when you select a new game. With procedural map generation, you will be challenged with every landscape as you navigate the canyons, mountains, and rough terrain.
