Sometimes games appear out of nowhere, and Mars: War Logs is one such title. The new RPG from Spiders (previously known for co-developing Of Orcs and Men) is launching on Steam later today.
Bear with me here, because I’ve pretty much only just learned it exists. You’ll be playing as Roy Temperance, a renegade fellow who’s in trouble with the oppressive government of Mars. Looks like there’ll be some thematic racial tension to go along with that political unrest too, as the regime is doing nasty things to the native Martians.
Combat appears to be sort of Batman: Arkham Thingie, but with various skill trees (Fighter, Renegade, Technomancer) and obviously on more of a budget. Speaking of which, it’ll only be $20.00 USD.
Since there’s been no sign of a review copy, I can’t heartily recommend getting your ass to Mars – but watch the launch and combat trailers below and see what you think.
