Mars Horizon FAQ

What is Mars Horizon?

Mars Horizon is a strategy simulation game about leading a major space agency and guiding humanity to Mars. It allows you to write your own alternate history of space exploration, building rockets, launching payloads, assembling your launch centre, and directing missions from the control room. The team has made the game truly authentic as it was created with support from the UK Space Agency and the European Space Agency.

When was Mars Horizon released?

The game was released on 17th November 2020.

What platforms is Mars Horizon available on?

Mars Horizon is available[] on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It is also compatible with the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

Can I stream the full game?

Yes, please do! You can stream the game or upload videos of it. We love to see people playing our game in real-time. Drop a link to your streams or videos in the coverage section of our Discord.

Where can I report bugs?

Head on over to our Mars Horizon bugs & issues subforum, or alternatively please send all bugs to this email address: [email protected]

Does Mars Horizon have a tutorial?

The game has a detailed tutorial created based on feedback from the beta. You can also drop into our Discord if you need any help and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

I want to speed the game up and/or don’t want to do the mission control part?

You can use auto-resolve on request missions to speed things up a bit (this skips the mission gameplay part).

This option is available after a successful launch, though you need to have the option on (check the “Auto-resolve” setting in Options)

What do I do if I’m finding the game too easy/hard?

The ‘Pioneer’ mode is the normal difficulty, which should be fine balance-wise (though obviously, some will find it too hard, some too easy).

For example, you can change the difficulty to “Explorer”, or customising the difficulty for “Missions” if you’re finding that part of the game especially hard (you can edit individual difficulty settings by pressing “customise” on the Difficulty Select screen)

The random number generator of the game (RNG) seems off? I keep failing missions?

The game has true randomness.

However, we also kept the reality of space exploration that things can and do go wrong, especially in the early stages of the space race.

During the development of the game, some of our team were lucky enough to interview some of the people working on ExoMars missions at the European Space Agency and they pointed out that learning of failure is a key part of progress. So keep trying!

Is this game similar to Kerbal Space Program (KSP)?

A bit. Both games share a theme (space) and authenticity in what they portray, but while KSP is focused more on the physics of building spacecraft and piloting them, Mars Horizon is much more about the strategy and management of running the agency and the strategy and tactics of Mission Control.

For example in our game, there is rocket design, but it is much more modular (which reflects the real-world approach, so we discovered!) and our game has areas like diplomacy between agencies (again, based on real research with space agencies).

We do know that there are plenty of fans of KSP who play Mars Horizon (there are fans of KSP on the dev team too!) but each game does its own thing.
