'Fort Solis' Partners With Studios Extraordinaires For Movie And TV Adaptation

Fort Solis is a single-player, third-person thriller set over one long night on the far side of Mars.

Engineer Jack Leary responds to a routine alarm. Upon arriving at a dormant Fort Solis he becomes unnerved by the lack of any staff at the base. With storm warnings imminent he heads inside to make contact. As the night grows longer, events escalate, spiral out of control and the mystery of what happened to the crew begins to reveal itself. The storms arrive, limiting Jack’s escape as he looks to hold out until morning arrives.

Utilizing the power of Unreal Engine 5, Fort Solis looks to deliver a high-fidelity experience designed to completely immerse the player in the cast and their long night. With performances from Roger Clark, Troy Baker and Julia Brown, Fort Solis looks to deliver emotion, fear, empathy and much more with every chapter.

Supporting the core narrative are additional instances of story such as audio logs, surveillance footage or past of present events. Accompanying those are video logs recorded by all crew detailing the events before and perhaps even after that night the alarm was triggered at Fort Solis…

The skeleton of Fort Solis is built above and below ground. The base contains a variety of locations each with their own surface and sub surface levels. Players will be able to explore the isolated storm bearing surface, the creepy service tunnels absent of any light or the multiple departments that help Fort Solis function on a day-to-day basis such as Engineering, Medical and Communications.

As the story unfolds locations can easily be revisited for additional story context or continue to serve as a backdrop to the fate that awaits Jack with each passing hour.

Can Jack escape with what he has discovered and more importantly, his life?

Thanks to the collaboration between Fallen Leaf and Studios Extraordinaires, fans and newcomers alike can anticipate an entirely fresh encounter with the enigmatic Red Planet.

The signing of this film and TV production deal with Studios Extraordinaires marks a significant milestone in the evolution of the Fort Solis IP. Through this partnership, we’re opening new gateways and avenues to explore the universe established in our debut title,” commented PIOTR KURKOWSKI, CEO AT FALLEN LEAF.

Studios Extraordinaires, a creative powerhouse spearheaded by André Hedetoft and Andreas Troedsson, specializes in crafting high-end action, horror, and science-fiction films inspired by original stories and extraordinary games. The duo will bring their expertise in film and TV production to further expand the gripping story of Fort Solis and entice a broader audience.

Fort Solis is the kind of clever science-fiction tethering on the brink of science-fact that will stay with you long after you step away from the screen. Each character in the small cast brings a unique perspective and depth to the story and we can’t wait to bring its gripping narrative, cinematic setting, and stellar cast to life amidst the thrilling backdrop of the Martian frontier,” said ANDRÉ HEDETOFT AND ANDREAS TROEDSSON AT STUDIOS EXTRAORDINAIRES.
