Get Surviving Mars for Free

Surviving Mars is currently available for free on Steam, offering the chance to terraform the Red Planet for nothing in this Windows, macOS, and Linux sim. This comes just in time for the release of the new Below and Beyond expansion. The giveaway may be of interest to anyone who missed getting this for free previously, as it's been given away not once but twice on the Epic Games Store and it was also a Humble Freebie a few months back. You'll need to act fast, as the offer expires at 1:00 pm EDT today (apologies for the short notice). If you snag it by then, it's yours to keep. Here's a refresher:
Surviving Mars is a sci-fi city builder all about colonizing Mars and surviving the process. Choose a space agency for resources and financial support before determining a location for your colony. Build domes and infrastructure, research new possibilities and utilize drones to unlock more elaborate ways to shape and expand your settlement. Cultivate your own food, mine minerals or just relax by the bar after a hard day’s work. Most important of all, though, is keeping your colonists alive. Not an easy task on a strange new planet.

Yep, and now it's soured.

I bet if we took a vote if Blue should post freebies, even if they are time limited or it was not posted on the day it started, that 99.975% percent would say yes.
I'm the 0.001% whispering "please post 1 hour to expiration, let *them* be on their toes, hihihi", illogical drama can be ... fascinating.

Yeah, their DLC strategy has really turned me off to their games over the past few years. And I'm a pretty big TBS player.

They are the kings of dlc nonsense but there are a lot of publishers taking up their cause. Many AA publishers have bought into that mindset, I guess to maximize their profits given their customer base not being as big for other genres. All it has taught me in the past five years is to be more patient and buy games 6-12 months after release up to 2-3 years in some cases.

Right...great explanation here...

So, let me guess, you're just upset that Blue didn't post this yesterday despite my telling you the quite probable reason why it wasn't...but hey, if you want to get into a semantics fight over when someone is posting something late, go right ahead, I'm sure there's a wall that is more your speed of arguing.

Between you and someone else who'll remain nameless, I've hit my quota of delusional.

Normally Id tell you where to shove your delusional, but since your reading comprehension is so poor you would understand it anyway.
I'm really not sure you should be taking pot shots at my supposed comprehension or illiteracy issues when you can't seem to structure your sentences with correct grammar.

On the other hand, seeing as you failed to grasp the simple concept that Blue is neither omniscient nor omnipresent, it really shouldn't surprise me that you cannot articulate a real argument without resulting in ad hominem attacks.

Some of these games have an Ironman mode, but I get your point. They're way too optimistic.

Ya know it's been given away like 3 or 4 times this year already?

I don't do free games form other platforms. Steam only.

That's not on Blue though...time-sensitive things are always going to be a hang-up for a lot of people, but shooting the proverbial messenger because you missed it is really a bad take.

It would be like looking through the archives to find similar posts and getting equally upset you missed the opportunity. I know you know that Blue is only as good as the reports he can either find or someone gives to him (like I've seen articles from you submitted), but he is still not a 24 hour news service and he does his best to get things out with ample enough time, in this case he just didn't have a huge window based upon his updates and when he got the reports.


Are you really that dense? You do realize that Blues posted this a day late right? I think thats all that needs to be said. A day Late!!!
How am I the one dense here? The article was accurate as of ~6am PDT today because I saw the giveaway myself before even seeing the article here. Looking at the time-stamp of the post by Blue I see it was posted at 11:08am EDT, which is just shy of 2 hours before the 1pm EDT deadline...

So, unless I am missing something, or I'm a time-traveller, Blue posted the article while the giveaway was active, albeit as he pointed out short notice.

You are apparent illiterate and have a reading comprehension problem. SMH!!
