The Red Planet is a first-person exploration survival game currently under development by Morningside Games, an indie game studio based in Brisbane, Australia.

Please note that this is a Concept Prototype only, it is not a 'game' in any sense. It showcases a select number of game-play features, and serves as a proof-of-concept only. It is not meant for review, nor is it meant for sale or wide-scale distribution. It is unoptimised, incomplete, and may contain game-breaking bugs. 

It was quickly developed in three and a half weeks by a team of two in order to be presented as a Concept Prototype for both the upcoming Kickstarter and IndieGoGo campaigns for The Red Planet.

Please support us on our Kickstarter Page, and we can take The Red Planet into full production as soon as possible.

I love space universe and this is a good prototype of game, a concept very interesting.

rations-level survival,the time that passes between day and night, gravity are well thought out.

It's a good project !

Seems like a neat game. Unfortunately I needed to adjust a few of the video / graphic settings to play, but there was no option for that in this form. I will be looking out for the full version though :)


While it does still feel like a demo or early access, there's a lot of good stuff in here. The ominous and lonely atmosphere, the introduction and all the environments are fantastic! The interactive nature still leaves a lot to be desired, but I think I can see what you're going for. My two biggest things would be more in terms of storytelling outside the existing environmental stuff, in addition to more of that, and the rover doesn't feel that great. The camera in particular. But, all in all, for a prototype, this is some impressive stuff! I've linked your kickstarter in the video description as well, so if you feel this would help raise awareness for your campaign, feel free to use it in any way you see fit! Best of luck to you! ^_^
