KeokeN Interactive has released its first developer diary for Deliver Us Mars, the upcoming sequel to Deliver Us The Moon.
KeokeN Interactive announced the game last month. Now, the studio takes us inside the creative process.
Check out the developer diary below:
Narrative director Raynor Arkenbout says:
“Deliver Us Mars centres around a team of astronauts that gets tasked to go to Mars to retrieve the technology that could revitalise the dying planet of Earth.
“So the story itself is this grand sweeping and epic drama. We focus a lot on a family, and especially a father-and-daughter relationship, to tell this very personal story, with this epic backdrop of trying to save the planet.”
The sequel will also apparently feature new climbing and traversal mechanics, and some puzzles. This is good news, as the original was slightly underpowered in that regard.
Deliver Us The Moon was an intriguing game, but it struggled with characters that weren’t memorable. In my review of it, I said: “The problem with the figures that emerge in Deliver Us The Moon is that they don’t emerge. They remain half blotted-out by boring writing.”
Deliver Us Mars doesn’t have a release date yet. It’s “coming soon” to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
