Just like the orbital telescopes around our home planet, your colony will take a Space Observatory as part of the Science Module. Not only will the observatory take high resolution images of the Red Planet’s surface, but the parallax increase using a telescope around mars will increase the colonists ability to accurately measure distances to far away objects. It will also act as a deep space warning system for objects that could pose a threat to Mars or Earth.
“Science Module is ready for entry, orbital observatory has been deployed within .5% of target orbital altitude, are we go/no go for entry?”
We need your help! This will be our first game going to Kickstarter and we need to spread the word. We are looking at a Sept 1st to launch so over the next two months I hope you get to know the theme, art and mechanics of the game. Please give the rules a read and watch our tutorial videos. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. We want this game to succeed and we want you to get to know and enjoy this game as much as we do.
The art for Mars 4:45 is by Jason Washburn from Talon Strikes Studios
