’39 Days to Mars’ Launches April 25 for PC, Mac and Linux
Solve co-op puzzles on a Victorian-era adventure to the Red Planet
March 13th, 2018 — Developer It’s Anecdotal is proud to announce its co-op steampunk puzzle-adventure game 39 Days to Mars will launch April 25th for Windows, Mac and Linux on Steam!
39 Days to Mars is a two player co-operative adventure game set in an alternate reality some 150 years in the past. You play as Sir Albert Wickes and The Right Honourable Clarence Baxter, two 19th century explorers who are piloting the HMS Fearful — a masterpiece of unreliable engineering — on its maiden voyage to Mars. Single-player adventuring and puzzle-solving can be had as well, with the ship’s computer-controlled cat there to keep you company.
When the steam engine runs out of coal, the ship’s aforementioned cat shreds the navigation chart, and the tea gets cold, it becomes clear that interstellar transportation isn’t a walk in the park. It will take the talents of two working together on a mix of puzzles and action sequences to get to Mars in one piece (let alone in 39 days).
39 Days to Mars will cost $14.99, with a right proper discount planned for launch week.
