Today, Mars Underground, from lone wolf developer Matt Sanderson received its second-ever trailer.
The new trailer runs at roughly a minute and welcomes you to the game’s setting, Phobos, including its friendly locals, stores with nothing to buy, and of course where every night the world ends. Only in Phobos can you talk to a toilet, take experimental prescription drugs, get hit by a car, countlessly humiliate yourself, all in attempt to figure out what on earth is going on.
Influenced by classic LucasArts adventures games, 16 bit SNES RPGs, and movies like Groundhog Day and Donnie Darko, Mars Underground is an apocalyptic adventure game in which players relive the same day over and over until they can figure out what’s going on and reach one of the game’s multiple endings.
Personally, anything that mentions its influences as 16 bit SNES RPGs and Donnie Darko is good enough for me to throw money at the screen. Suffice to say, I was pretty excited for the new trailer. You can check it out for yourself below.
As we previously reported, Mars Underground hit Kickstarter (which runs until December 31st) seeking $3142 AUD. Even more recently we reported that the game reached 50 percent of its Kickstarter goal, as well as launched on Steam Greenlight. The game is currently in development for PC, Mac, and Linux.
