Watch the first full gameplay demo of Tharsis


Tharsis (opens in new tab) is one of the most intriguing games at PAX. We've already spoken with Mike Roush (opens in new tab), co-founder of developer Choice Provisions, about the game, and now he's back to show off the first full gameplay demo. It's a blend of roguelike and board game, in which you're tasked with keeping the first manned mission to Mars from meeting a grim fate by rolling dice to make repairs, grow food, and generally keep your crew alive. Watch the video above to see a full (albeit catastrophic) game play out.
