Who doesn’t love games about building things? And what’s better than building a planet hospitable to human habitation? In Terraforming Mars, you play as corporations vying to make the red planet a hot travel destination for mankind. Literally hot. The dumb rock is freezing, so go ahead and throw some asteroids at it, and pump it full of greenhouse gases, because nobody’s coming until that thermometer says it’s ready.

The game was designed by Jacob Fryxelius with art by Isaac Fryxelius, and is published in the United States by Stronghold Games.

We also got a chance to check out Greater Than Games’ Legends of Sleepy Hollow, so we talk a little about the wild and crazy pastime of backing games on Kickstarter. I also posted a full write-up on the game, which you should check out if you’re interested in a cooperative campaign-style adventure game set in Washington Irving’s Ichabod-a-verse. I made that up just now.

If you enjoy our show, maybe leave us a rating over on iTunes? We really appreciate it!
