Have you ever thought if there is life on Mars?
Our hero didn’t believe in the existence of extraterrestrials. But one quiet July night he has found himself in the company of not-so-friendly aliens. Now he has to fight with different inhabitants of Mars and find a way back home.
Marsmare: Alienation is a platformer with elements of metroidvania. In the first part of the game (which has already been developed for the ZX Spectrum 128K and is available for download as a “Demo” version), 90 rooms, 8 enemy types, 5 different locations (laboratory, caves, factory, spaceport and Mars surface), checkpoints and other great features.
The successful Kickstarter campaign allowed us to get started making the physical release and also adding new features to the game! We are currently working on a continuation of the story on the Moon and a version for PC and ZX Next. The full version of Marsmare will include:
- Adventure on Mars
- Short shoot-em-up episode in outer space
- New levels on the Moon
- New Moon mechanics
- Difficult and super difficult game levels
- Random levels and deathmatch mod (only for ZX Next version)
