In the beginning, you will be dependent on supplies from Earth and will have to travel often between orbit and the planet's surface. As the colony expands over time, you will shift your activities to construct mines, power generators, water extractors, greenhouses, oxygen factories, and shelters. Your goal is to develop a self-sustaining colony independent of any terrestrial organization. This will require understanding the importance of water, air, power, and food — the necessities for survival. During the game, players are also trying to complete missions. Once a total of three missions have been completed, the game ends. To win the game, players must have contributed most to the development of the first colony on Mars.
