UAT, Phoenix – Explore the surface of Mars and unlock new abilities to reach new places. Discover hidden caves and unlock their secrets, but keep an eye on your oxygen level, and watch out for dust storms.
We used actual data from the Mars Orbital Laser Altimeter to create the terrain (at a significantly smaller scale), and then modified it for gameplay purposes. We also used many of the sound assets through the player’s radio, as lost or distant signals.
The game is still a work in progress, but the core features are present, and the game is playable. Controls are WASD + Space Bar. Right shift opens the developer menu, which would not be present if the game was released.
