About this project
We’re out to build the best real time strategy game on Facebook.We call it Mars Frontier--it's about building robot armies on Mars and going to war.
Mars Frontier was started in 2011 by two guys, Dan and Ian. They've had a ton of help from friends to get the beta out--now they need your help.
This Kickstarter campaign funds:
- Multi-channel sound effects
- Upgraded art packs
- A player handbook
- Support for discussion forums
- A boxed set and collectibles made just for you!
See REWARDS in the right sidebar for all the fun stuff you get for supporting the game!
Mars Frontier is the FIRST browser-based RTS to offer Starcraft-like keyboard and mouse controls using both left and right click. Attack-move, control groups, it's all there.
Game art is created using RenderMan®, Pixar’s Oscar-winning computer graphics software with top-notch anti-aliasing and ambient occlusion.
Mars Frontier runs on HTML5, a browser technology that's replacing Adobe Flash, and other downloads that mess up your computer. Plus, via HTML5 Mars Frontier will eventually run on your tablet and smartphones.
