Choice Provisions bringing Tharsis to Wii U
Posted on December 12, 2015 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U eShop
A listing on PEGI, a ratings board in Europe, reveals that Choice Provisions is working on a Wii U version of Tharsis. The company previously expressed interest in porting it over, but this is the first confirmation we have that it’s actually happening. An official announcement will likely be made soon.
If you haven’t heard of Tharsis before, the following overview should come in handy:
“Earth’s first Mars mission should have been 300 days to glory. But Yuri only made it to 170, and we lost Allison after 105. Turns out, life in space is just that: life, with moods and jealousies and infuriating little failures. Only you’re a few million miles from civilization, so humanity’s frailties also happen to be deadly.
Tharsis is a turn-based, perma-death, realistic space strategy game. With dice. And cannibalism. It puts you in control of the first-ever mission to Mars, just as it’s struck by a meteor storm.
But some part of you knows this landing is possible. In fact, the more you think about those signals from the Tharsis region, the less you believe you’d be first to set foot there…
Defy the odds, make the difficult decisions, and embark on the most important rescue mission in all of mankind.”
And here’s a lengthy look at the game:
