Twelve MarsTopian Joys of Christmas


12 Drummers Drumming

A dozen Logic Pro X virtual drummers beat out the intense rhythms for LAST LIFE's original soundtrack, completed before Christmas.

11 Pipers Piping

The virtual Pipers (sax and trumpet) who live within our Roland GR-55 Guitar Synthesizer have moaned their noir solos, ignoring calls for holiday cheer.

10 Lords A-Leaping

Our incredible cast of voice actors including Adam Hunter Howard, David Shaughnessy, Jason Lott, PJ Ochlan, Christopher Moore, Steven Dengler, Chris Farmer, Sam Farmer and Cosmo.

9 Ladies Dancing

Also including voice actors Claire Adams, Julia Cho, Amy Shaughnessy, Meagan English, Jerrilyn Farmer, and Kyra MacFarland.

All principal voice acting has been recorded, mixed and added to the game, with only a few minor characters, atmosphere, revisions and refinements to come.

8 Maids A-Milking

The gallons of milk in our daily chocolate-banana protein shakes which powered the RSA team through relentless deadlines.

7 Swans A-Swimming

Ah, if only we had thought to put mech-swans in the canals of Mars! Next version!

6 Geese A-Laying

If these Geese are laying a Jewel encrusted Egg--that could be a spoiler. Shh.

5 Golden Rings

What my family has hocked to fund the rest of our production.

4 Calling Birds

Alas, there are no birds on Mars. But if there were, we have no doubt that our character artist, Rodrigo, could give them cool low-poly flair! (There are dogs.)

3 French Hens

We are happy to announce all 3 episodes of LAST LIFE (proposed on Kickstarter--but only one ep was funded) will be released together.  Yes, we made them ALL! 

2 Turtle Doves

Those episodes are now combined into one complete 2-HOUR feature film-length game experience!   Happy holidays to you!

And a Partridge in a Pear Tree

LAST LIFE- doesn't have any synth feathers and tastes nothing like MarsTopian fruit, but it is the gift we are working on every day.

Your support has given us the opportunity to make it and we are excited to share it with you as soon as we can. For now, no more spoilers.

A Joyous Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Merry Festivus to all.

      Any word on this? Somehow I got the impression this would be out around the end of March...

    3. Sean Harvey on March 23, 2016

      When will this come out?

    4. Marlon Sherman on December 25, 2015

      When can we expect to see the game available?

    5. Benjamin Fischer on December 24, 2015

      so, the whole game will take around 2 hours to complete?
      hope there is some replay value

      Sam, I'm really happy to hear you'll be able to ship the game with the complete story. It sounds like development is coming along well. Enjoy the holidays with your family and take the all time you need to polish the game properly.

      1) Thanks Jesus. You backers will get the full 3 eps (coming out together in one game)--no extra charge.
      2) Stephen, doh! That's what you get when posting a quick update while running out the door to catch The Force Awakens (last minute free ticket) for the 2nd time. Will fix asap.

      Might want to check the spelling of "MarsTopian" in that graphic.
