Mars Horizon - Video game vs. Board game
Thu, 22 October 2020

What's the best way to get to Mars?



Game Designer Tomas Rawlings talks to devs Jem and Allie about the creation of Mars Horizon the video game and Mars Horizon: Blast Off the board game!

Both games are about running your own space agency and landing the first crewed mission on Mars. Hear about the differences between the games and how they adapted the themes and gameplay for physical and digital. You can also learn how Auroch Digital worked with the UK Space Agency and the European Space Agency to make both games accurate, accessible, and how they captured the excitement of mission control!

Lead a major space agency as you guide humanity to Mars in this strategy simulation game. Construct a base, design and build rockets, conduct missions throughout the Solar System, and write your own history of Space exploration. Created with support from the European Space Agency.

He spent six years training for the mission, beating 8,000 other applicants who responded to an ad from the ESA entitled, ‘Do you want to be an astronaut?’. Tim worked on every one of his 186 days in space with the majority of his experiments focussing on what space does to human physiology.

He also, with help from celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal, enjoyed the first bacon sandwich to ever be consumed in space! 🥪
