Take on Mars is the latest in Bohemia Interactive’s space-faring series. THe game sees you in control of a lunar rover as it speeds across the red planet’s surface and managing a space program.

PCGamesN reports that Take on Mars is split into thee strains of gameplay. ‘Space Program’ sees you in control of a scientific research scheme, where you’ll engineer and manage new exploration tech.

‘Scenarios’ mode hurls you into missions on Mars itself, offering a variety of objectives, and finally ‘Editor’ mode lets you create your own scenarios from scratch.

Your lunar rover is fragile and must be controlled with care, or you’ll wind up with a lofty repair bill that will dent your space program’s funds. It’s all about the money, money, money.

The game’s out later this year. The official Take on Mars site has more.

    Back on topic!

    This is a very unusual thing for a simulation company to be doing. Take on Helicopters was a little bit interesting but still a little too mundane for my tastes. This, though? This has my attention. Space exploration sims are something I’m still a bit nerdy for.

    I’ll be interested to see how this turns out.
