Mars Manager

Journey to Mars

Develop a game that simulates conditions in an off-Earth located permanent or temporary colony. The game could be a sandbox that offers the possibility to simulate various facilities that would support a reduced gravity environment far from earth’s atmosphere and magnetosphere. Users could be given power allowances, atmospheric conditions, and in situ resource options (using resources available on site for life support or other needs). The game could include a variety of scenarios including:

  • Arranging a GPS-like system on the Moon or Mars to support navigation for the human inhabitants. The simulation could allow the users to explore different solutions such as a constellation of satellites, a network of masts or other Earth based methods at the challenger’s discretion.
  • Players could build a habitat that could withstand the Lunar or Martian environment while also taking into consideration that its inhabitants need to have adequate power and supplies, be able to produce food, have locations sleep, live and work.
  • Build a Virtual Moon telescope. The simulation could allow the user to conduct a research mission using a telescope on site near their habitat. Explore what instruments make sense for the location of the telescope (and what the user wants to observe). Game players could explore settings such as exposure times or wavelengths to observe. Observations could vary based on the position of the telescope on the Moon or Mars, and the relative position in the sky of the pointed object. After each simulated capture, show an appropriately generated image reflecting the exposure and wavelength settings.

In this game, you are the CEO of the Spaceport Corporation. You have the basic resources to start building your new business on Mars, bringing people to explore, discover and make life on this planet a possibility! Throughout this game time flies, you need to invest your resources wisely to make new discoveries and make things impossible possible all whilst bringing more people to live and/or travel to this destination.


space port on Earth--this is the place where people will be taking their space journeys from. In this stage you build your Earth-port or you can chose one of already build models, -manage money wisely-


When you land on Mars you can explore it or start building the Mars Port. Blue prints for basic facilities are given:

Outer Wall----Outside protection in order to fight against natural disasters like Martian sand storm

Electricity generator----Transfer Solar energy into electricity to keep most facilities in operation.

Water tank----Ensure sufficient water supply for citizens and certain equipment

Food supply----Core of life support system

Oxygen tanks----Support extravehicular including maintainance and spacewalk.
