Key Features:

  • UNIQUE SETTING: Explore Mars, a beautiful hostile planet and make it your home. From the majestic dunes to the frightening deep valley, you will visit memorable location to find your live saving resources. Don’t stay out too long, Mars can be even more deadly than a riffle gun should you get lost in a sandstorm or stuck out in a frozen night.
  • PERSISTENT SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST… OR SMARTEST: Make sure that each and every of your moves serve one goal: survive! You will be in need of oxygen, food, water and you will have to protect yourself from heat, cold, radiation, wounds and so on. Mars will be offering you some resources but you will have to be smart and creative to access to the rest. And remember, there’s no pause in the game. Don’t leave your computer too long, things can happen...
  • CRAFT AND BUILD: Suits, robots, devices, weapons are craftable and customizable to your taste but first and foremost to your needs. Build smart shelter base by making sure your pipe system can welcome future add-ons. Some crafted devices can be socketed in your walls to give some extra capabilities to your base: automated or programmed tasks, heavier defence powers, survivability comfort or more…
  • FRIENDS OR FOES, PLAY WITH OTHERS: Join forces with your friends to mutualize the efforts and resources you put into surviving. Trade with other friendly crew to continue develop your own ecosystem. But some will be more onto domination. They will use every system available to loot your resources and base, from direct armed attack to a sneakier hacking program.

ROKH is currently available on Steam Early Access for $24.99 (USD)
