The next giant leap: Interview with ‘Deliver Us Mars’ game developers

There’s no shortage of space games out there at the moment. A cursory glance at the Xbox Store, PSN, or Steam will reveal a wealth of interstellar adventures – Destiny 2, Guardians of the Galaxy, Halo Infinite, and Elite Dangerous just to name a few. But the overwhelming majority of space games drag us hundreds of years into humanity’s future to show us fully fledged interstellar empires and galactic wars. We rarely get a glimpse at what our near future might look like.

Fortunately, there are a few games that try to show a closer and more realistic version of our next steps into the cosmos. We had Moonbase Alpha, a game developed in cooperation with NASA to show what a realistic moon base might look like. Another such hard sci-fi treat was 2018’s puzzle adventure Deliver Us The Moon. Set in a post-apocalyptic future where climate change has ravaged the Earth, the game follows a lone astronaut’s mission to the moon to save humanity after its energy supply from the moon mysteriously shuts down.
