The red planet has been a beacon for human imagination for years, from Robert Heinlein’s The Green Hills of Earth to NASA’s push to the stars.

Now game designer Jacob Fryxelius has set his sights on the planet as well, asking players to spend a couple hours bringing life and sustainability to the fourth rock from the Sun.
