Surviving Mars Resource Trailer

A new trailer from Surviving Mars introduces the resource system of the Red Planet, which will not be the same as a traditional city-building game. The clip show off a supply drop system that asks the musical question "did you ever think you've get this excited about concrete?" The video, however, does not mention two of the more famed Mars survival resources, potatoes and dehydrated poop. Here's the description:

When work was starting on Surviving Mars it quickly became apparent to us that a traditional city-builder resource system won't do at all. Concentrated efforts have been made to emphasize elements that are not common for the genre but are tightly tied to the survival aspect of the game, such as scanning for resources, deposit scarcity and transportation problems.

Our main objective was to create a rich, deep system where resources feel different from one another and are not just requirements for placing new buildings, but instead present different kinds of thematic problems. Your water towers may freeze. A metal deposit may run dry. A critical building may stop working because the electronics required to repair it is not available.

Too bad it's not really Mars, and not realistic... because a realistic Mars colonization sim might be interesting... with factions emerging, worker rights, robotic developments, AI, creating first trade-routes between bases, radiation protection, orbital base for easier trade etc.
