Information warning prior to starting Mission
New, WishlistPublic


Personally speaking I would have liked a heads up that you drop in from Orbit and that you have no control. Maybe a prompt or two that Night Vision and LED are available.

It took me a while to realise what was going on which might just confuse others as it did me. One thing I do not yet understand it the drill part. I see the orange(ish) box changing shape as I pan but could not quite work out what I was supposed to be doing. Got it in the end purely by luck I think.


  1. A little heads up as to what to expect on first mission start
  2. A little prompt about the keys as it is night time on Mars for me :(
  3. A little help with the drill box/target thing.

Other than that, totally confused and loving it :)

Already in works is my guess. Since if you press T you can see all the planned tutorial videos. Only 3 is currently available. So when they are finished you will probably see a tutorial video ingame that automaticly pops up on how all the systems work just before you're required to use them.

Yes the tutorial videos will have everything you need. Right not you have to reverse engineer all of the intel to find out what you need to do.

Anyhow, why does the game start in first person view?
There is nothing interesting to see until you have touched the ground.
I'd rather suggest to automatically start all missions in 3rd person perspective (as the intro video does, too).
