In 2097, life is discovered on Mars. When your mission of first contact becomes trapped by a cave-in, you must master the alien ecosystem to survive. Soon you stumble upon more than anyone expected, and with time running out, you will make a decision that determines the fate of a lost planet.

Waking Mars is a one-of-a-kind adventure in which you jet pack through subterranean Mars encountering a host of extraordinary alien lifeforms that operate as a living, breathing ecosystem. Learn and master the behaviors of these creatures to create ecosystems of your own design if you are to survive and discover the secrets of Mars’ past, in this unique exploration-focused free-form platformer.

Quarter To Three calls Waking Mars "surprisingly thoughtful, delightfully atmospheric, smartly written, carefully gradually unfolds its secrets without holding your hand." The TouchArcade Game of the Year 2013 and Apple's iPad Game of the Year Runner-Up has been lovingly updated for Windows and MacOS, including native mouse, keyboard, and gamepad controls, along with full support for high-resolution displays.
