We’ve already featured one action game from the small screen today, so it only makes sense that we also feature an app based on one of the biggest movie events of the past year. It’s called The Martian, and here’s why we like it.

In The Martian, you’ll experience the plight of astronaut Mark Watney, only in this strategy game you’re his only hope for survival. You play one of a NASA communications specialist that is communicating with Mark in real time via text-based messages. You’re his only contact on Earth, and all that stands between him and a return to our world, or certain death.

You’ll be driving the story by choosing from a number of options that pop up for various scenarios, with each decision having an impact on the story at large. Some of those impacts are positive, and some could prove dire for Mark if you’re not careful. All communication will be in real time, meaning that throughout your work day you’ll be getting notifications from Mark regarding a certain incident, or even just to talk. You can guide him through a series of critical moments, do your research to make sure you’re giving the right advice, and so much more. The result is an intense and wildly engaging gameplay that you can enjoy throughout your day. If you haven’t seen The Martian, go see it and then come download the companion app to become a part of the story.
