How realistic is Mars Horizon? We ask real space agencies

Thanks to everyone who played the demo, wishlist the game, and tuned into our live streams during the Steam Game Festival! We’ve had lots of great feedback from our community to help us keep improving Mars Horizon.

We asked experts from the UK Space Agency and the European Space Agency how Mars Horizon compares to the real thing. Don’t worry if you missed the live streams during the event, you can watch them right now over on Youtube.
