Frontier Foundry (the games label of Frontier Development) had released the first developer diary for Deliver Us Mars. For those who don’t know, Deliver Us Mars is a cinematic narrative-driven adventure by KeokeN Interactive. Today we learned More about this fascinating sequel to Deliver Us The Moon. An official description of the game reads; ‘Deliver Us Mars is set in a future where Earth has been ravaged by climate change, and world-altering floods are a part of our everyday lives.
In the game, which is set 10 years after Deliver Us The Moon, players join a group of astronauts on a high-stakes mission to ensure humanity’s future. Their goal is to retrieve the enormous colonisation ships known as the ARKs from the shadowy organisation known as Outward, in order to revitalise planet Earth before it’s too late. Along the way, they’ll uncover the truth behind what happened to Outward’s missing colony.’
In this new Developer Diary, it’s revealed that the game will depict a complicated relationship between a father and his daughter. We don’t know much about the story outside of this, but the developers have said that ‘observant fans of Deliver Us The Moon may be able to guess the identity of the protagonist in this sequel based on visual clues in this developer diary.’
In a big change from Deliver Us The Moon, the main character of this game will be fully voiced. ‘Her personality, motivations, and history will unfold in her own words as she explores the Martian landscape and the game’s multiple other locations. With motion-captured performances by a talented cast, this sequel represents a huge jump in narrative presentation – enabling the developers at KeokeN Interactive to capture the emotional nuances of the characters and heighten the level of drama players will feel throughout the story.’
