Frontier Developments has released the final developer diary for its upcoming sci-fi game Deliver us Mars. This is basically a last look behind the curtain for the team before we prepare for the game’s eventual release. After that, we’ll probably only see promo videos and so on as we get slowly heading towards February 2, 2023. You can enjoy the video below with notes from the team.
“Discover the emotional conflict that drives the sci-fi adventure game Deliver us Mars in the game’s third and final development diary, “A Family Divided”. In Deliver us Mars, protagonist Kathy Johanson joins a mission to Mars to help save planet Earth – but as this video explores, she’s not alone on the space shuttle Zephyr. Among the team is his older and superior sister, Claire Johanson, and their complicated past has been a source of tension throughout the game’s history.
“Both Kathy and Claire were abandoned by their father, Isaac, years earlier as he joined the organization known as Outward on their journey to Mars – leaving the rest of humanity behind to suffer on a dying planet.In the present day, Kathy and Claire follow in his footsteps to Mars, but both bring their own baggage to the mission.While Kathy misses Isaac and seeks to end their relationship, hoping to find him alive on the Red Planet, Claire resents her father deeply for leaving his family behind and has everything but reconciliation on her mind.”
“Despite this, the two sisters have the same goal: to bring home the ARKs, massive spacecraft capable of reversing Earth’s climate-change-induced environmental decline. Their relationship forms but a plotline in Deliver us Mars‘ rich and complex narrative, which is firmly based on developer KeokeN Interactive’s work on Deliver us the moonthe first game in this series.”
