4 years ago developer KeokeN Interactive released a cool little game called Deliver Us The Moon, an atmospheric sci-fi adventure following a lone astronaut who’s sent to The Moon on a mission to avert humanity’s fate towards extinction. Apparently the resources have been depleted and The Moon must be ripe for the picking… Maybe they’re looking for some cheese or something.
Anyway it’s currently the middle of summer here in Australia, I’m sweltering in 40 degree heat and by some weird alignment of the planets, I get handed the sequel which is about escaping the current heat death of Earth and wandering around Mars for a bit. And you better believe that I’m ready for some escapism.
Deliver Us Mars is an atmospheric sci-fi adventure much like its predecessor, taking you on a suspense-fuelled, high-stakes mission to recover the ARK colony ships stolen by the mysterious Outward, and with them, ensure the survival of the human race.
But will this game be the space odyssey re-imagining that I’ve been looking for… or will it make me want to throw myself into space where nobody can hear me scream about it. Let’s put this one through its… “spaces”… and find out!
My name is Kochie and this… is Deliver Us Mars!
