- Space Program Campaign Chapter 1: Robotics Campaign
Explore the Red Planet from the perspective of a science-driven space agency. Command rovers, landers, or probes, over a distance of hundreds of millions of kilometers – and collect important scientific data about Mars. Research new technologies to gain new equipment.
- Space Program Campaign Chapter 2: Manned Mission Story Campaign
Take on the role of astronaut Mark Willis, one of the crew members in the first manned mission to Mars. When things go wrong during the descent into Mars’ atmosphere, and the connection with Earth is lost, the crew is declared missing in action. However, there’s one survivor: you. Relying on a background as a mechanical engineer, you will need to fight for survival and construct the machines needed for a chance to return home.
