39 Days to Mars - 19th century 2 player couch co-op adventure gets a release

Our good friend and fellow Indie guy Konstantinos Dimopoulos, has contacted us recently regarding a new game on Steam called '39 Days to Mars' developed by Anecdotal, a one-person indie development studio of Philip Buchanan. Available on Steam, Humble Store and itch.io, 39 Days to Mars is a rather unique and charming co-op steam punk puzzle adventure game, which allows up to 2 player in co-op, set upon the HMS Fearful; a masterpiece of unreliable engineering on its maiden voyage to Mars in an alternate reality in the 19th century.

When the steam engine runs out of coal, the ship's aforementioned cat shreds the navigation chart, and the tea gets cold, it becomes clear that interstellar transportation isn't a walk in the park. Thus playing as Sir Albert Wickes and The Right Honourable Clarence Baxter, two 19th century explorers, you must work together on a mix of puzzles and action sequences to get to Mars in one piece!

39 Days to Mars is a two player co-operative game.
The HMS Fearful is a masterpiece of unreliable engineering, therefore Albert and Baxter will need all the help they can get. Nothing can be done without the effort of both players, who have important roles to play in the adventure.

For the solo voyager, the ship's computer-controlled cat will keep you company. Without a second pair of hands, Albert will need an extra dose of dexterity to navigate the challenges of Victorian space flight.

The mix of action and thoughtful puzzles make it perfect for playing in short sessions. The entire adventure fits comfortably into an evening.

Be drawn into the world of Albert and Baxter by the unique illustrated artwork. 39 Days to Mars has a rich sound-scape and a beautiful piano score that is punctuated only by the occasional disaster.
