Description Edit | History

Designer's Description:

There are two games in the Mars Colony series of games. Both are set within the new colony on the Red Planet. And both games ask the players to cope with a harsh environment, and an even harsher political situation.

The first game is the original 2010 release, Mars Colony, designed specifically for two players. This game establishes the backstory for the colony as a project created by a coalition of Earth governments that advertised the new Mars as a multi-national utopia. After years of incompetence and disaster, the colony is dying. One player will take on the role of the colony savior, who has been nominated to turn things around. While the savior was a celebrated expert on Earth, Mars is a different environment entirely. Players will have to face a constant struggle between competence and failure, honesty and deception. It is a game custom built to explore the cult-of-personality present in modern-day politics, but playable in the time it takes to watch a long movie.

The second game is the 2014 sequel, 39 Dark. Like the original, it is designed for two players. However, instead of a story about the government, the players tell a story about the people and their burgeoning protest movement. One player will take on the role of the resistance movement's leader, Lane Novak. It's a game about political freedom and standing up for what's right. The object of the game is to tell a meaningful story about Lane Novak's attempt to change Mars Colony for the better and cope with her own sense of self-worth in the face of mounting violence and political backlash. Rules are included in 39 Dark to explicitly tie the events that took place in your Mars Colony game to those about to take place in 39 Dark.
