There are certain jobs that allow human capital to perform actions in a repetitive, unthinking way, like an assembly line worker or a surgeon. MarsCorp does not offer those kind of jobs. The vital importance of the mission coupled with working at the cutting edge of human scientific and technological capability means all human capital must be fully emotionally engaged with their work, drawing on past experience to deal with present obstacles. Over time this will allow you to reflect, learn and improve yourself as piece of the MarsCorp mission and move forward as a human being.
With Resources foiled in their plan to destroy MarsCorp with ‘The Wheel’ they flee to their secret base that’s been under construction; ‘Site B’. The team find this desolate outpost virtually abandoned with disgusting relics of what went on here before Hob and the others arrived.
But this place is more than just a new site for Resources to try and establish their own colony. It holds a strange and powerful secret, one that threatens to destroy Hob and her team unless they can get to Alberich and his cronies first.

The MarsCorp “Community”
There is no community, obviously. What are we, communists? But if you would like discuss MarsCorp and its many intricacies – What’s Martin’s favourite medication? Are Hob and [insert character] going to bang? Why is the intro music so good? – then you should head over to the MarsCorp subreddit!
We’re also on Twitter and Facebook, where we post all the latest news as well as a whole load of nonsense. Follow/Like us for some good shit and if you really, really like us then share our stuff and help us reach more people!
