This unique steampunk platformer is now in development to reach to your PC.

With 19 days to go, 39 Days to Mars has already reached double of its $1000 Kickstarter goal. This unique 2D platformer created by Surrealix will be released on PC, Mac and Linux systems. You can pledge a mere $2 to obtain a copy of the game when it is released.

39 Days to Mars is a beautiful independent title that combines steampunk themes with action and puzzle adventure games. Gamers play as Sir Albert Wickes and “The Right Honourable Clarence Baxter,” supporting an optional two-way multiplayer system as you try to keep both characters alive on their trip to Mars.

What sets this game apart is its quirky design and easy pickup value. This game’s design adheres strictly to steam machinery and Victorian clothing that define the steampunk genre, while incorporating elements from survival games and more recent puzzle titles.  Despite the blend of themes and genres, the game will be easy to play and pick up again in short spurts. This particular design choice is commonly found in mobile games, so it will be interesting to see how this game will play once it is complete.

As of February 13, there are still 19 days left for 39 Days to Mars to receive donations on their Kickstarter, so remember to support them or visit their official website for more information!
