Tharsis Gameplay Information:

Tharsis is a turn-based space strategy game. With dice. And cannibalism.You are in control of humanity’s first manned mission to Mars, just as it’s struck by a meteor. You must guide your crew through disasters, food shortages, and the indifference of space — Do not expect survivors.

Tharsis Game Background:

A mysterious signal originating from the Tharsis region of Mars set us on a frantic mission. Who sent it? And why? Impossible questions, but in them lie the key to humanity’s survival.

Now, millions of miles away from home, a micrometeoroid storm has left us with a severely damaged ship, two deceased crew, and the sneaking suspicion this trip was doomed from the start.

Tharsis is a turn-based space strategy game. With dice. And cannibalism. It puts you in control of humanity’s first manned mission to Mars, just as it’s struck by a micrometeoroid storm. You must guide your crew through disasters, food shortages, and the unforgiving nature of space — all while maintaining your sanity amidst cryptic signals and warnings from Mars.

Defy the odds, make the difficult decisions, and embark on the most important mission in human history.

hey blitz have you heard of this game called “Fear Equation” It is a awesome survival/strategy game and sadly it is not on steam yet but it is on google and if you wont you can watch yippee Ki ya Mr. falcon play it! It is the best new survival game I ever saw! 🙂   BTW the game just came out like 3 days ago so very little of that game is on YouTube! 🙁

Desmond Atwood says:

how did you find this game?

RamesGamesLC says:

My first thought… is that main menu (title screen, whatever) looks really jank (for reasons no one but me should care about).
More specifically, the texture on the planet looks low res, and stretched downward.

If they only intended to show less than 50% of the planet, I’m assuming they could just scale down the planet and make it higher res image since 50% of the animation doesn’t matter.

It’s also weird how the stars in the background move to the right. Let’s assume your camera is orbiting a rotating star, makes sense. Yes. However, if that were the case the light source (aka sun) would also be moving compared to you, but also on the planet. Since stars only appear to move (mainly) due to our perspective changing while standing on a rotating earth, then you can conclude with the stars panning right your camera is in fact moving.

Something about the main menu just plain bugs me.

Great rest of the video though! It’s certainly an interesting one. Saw you load it up on steam and thought “new series inbound”.

This looks like a pretty interesting game even with the gameplay being at the hands of the dice gods

Warmachine 9092 says:

cekobidonq says:

Who designed this spaceship? Everything keeps breaking. They’d be safer going to Mars in a washing machine.

tawnykyle says:

Please do play more but sometimes I think you’d be better off just using the rolls to get repairs done ya know? Especially with the super crazy 32+ ones.

Reragi says:

Finally, I’ve been looking for this game after seeing it on Steam Greenlight. Now Blitz is playing it, today’s a great day!

OMGIDestroyedMatter says:

GearCheck 101 says:

@10:30 why not fix the other room first with the 3 people already in it and then go to the command module?

Itamea says:

more do more!!!!!

Corey Douglas says:

This game is brutally hard. I Played 4 times and only got to turn 3 at my best. But I missed some things I didn’t know about. Thanks for the tips. I’ll try again right now.

SierraSierraFoxtrot says:

wow why all the silly decisions?!

Per-Arvid Land says:

You should probably try to utilize your crews abilities more and maybe just go get some food/repair the ship etc. when needed. Looks like you’re not supposed to be able to just clear all disasters all the time. Might get more out of your limited dice if you concentrate more on buffs so you’ll be able to tank the bad stuff.

Are the damages completely randomized? Cause the difference between an 8 event and a 30 is kinda mega huge. ^_^

The Doctor Medic says:

Anyone Else Think the Ship Looks Like a Giant RPG?

iluvweed says:

“your guna wana check the price before purchasing it”

philipjwh2580 says:

No offence, but you a terrible at this game. Still a good watch though lol

MarkusReese says:

Not sure whether or not I want to see more. It is a nailbiter, but I think one of those ones that just bring frustration which might spoil the fun we have of hanging with your vids?

I looks like a great challenge, tactical game of weighing costs. Overall though, I think will be a whole bunch of should have this that and armchair gaming in comments :3 Plus you wrapped it up sounding in a worse mood than you went in?

GearCheck 101 says:

@15:45, could have given it to the specialist so she could roll for food….
