A small team of students have together formed Patata Games Studio, who are preparing their brand-new Indie Game M.A.R.S.S. to be ready for launch on Steam. M.A.R.S.S. is an indie attempt re-creating the magic formula of a Pikmin game, mixed up with a unique and fun setting, and typical RTS game mechanics. Set in a Cold War Era Russia, M.A.R.S.S. mixes comedic tones with the want for domination of Mars, but when Russian robots arrive at Mars, they see that America has already taken it for themselves! But do not lose hope Russian Bots… there is still some hope left!



M.A.R.S.S has you controlling a number of COMRADE’s, who are cute little robots, set to end the American reign over Mars. Each COMRADE has a strength, but like the ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors’ rules, they equally have a weakness too. This counts for your enemies too! So be sure to keep an eye on this and exploit it at every opportunity. Controlling these units of COMRADE’s won't be simple either as each action will have a transmission radius to get others to join in on the action. This will mean players will need to think carefully about breaking up their pack of robots or gathering together in ‘Strength in Numbers’ with slower outputs!



In Summary, check out the trailer to see this little indie title in action and be sure to check out its Steam page here.
