Feb 4, 2023This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Touching story with great acting, once you get past some of the jarring character models (I’m looking at you Sarah). The gameplay is fun, and I liked the new climbing mechanic which is very manual compared to in other games, adding to the tension. The ending really questions morality, how do you know you’re doing the right thing, and what a cliffhanger! I hope we can see the story continue!… Expand
Feb 9, 2023Honestly a great game, do not listen to those half-baked **** reviews by some sour people. Yes the game can improve on some early glitches, but people, its an indie game, with a very low budget compared to AAA. This is absolutely a masterpiece, it builds upon its strengths of its predecessor, its an important story to be told and I can't wait for more games of this dev.
Feb 18, 2023This game is great. Not a 10 obviously. Yes, it's low budget but I had an enormous amount of fun with it.

Mar 19, 2023Deliver Us Mars is a truly worthy sequel of the -underdog- Deliver Us the Moon. There is much more effort in developing its characters and the overall story complements and expands the topics of the first game. Expect a slow-burner, hard science fiction adventure and you will not be disappointed.
Mar 9, 2023While it retains the intriguing plot and robust space atmosphere of the first game, the lack of puzzle variety, poor face modeling, and monotonous gameplay that quickly becomes repetitive make Deliver Us Mars a weak game. Despite the additions, it feels more like a step back than a sequel.
Mar 8, 2023Overall, Deliver Us Mars is surprisingly compelling, with a story of a daughter searching for her wayward father despite his crimes — while others on the crew are searching for him because of said crimes. Most of the gameplay does a great job of keeping things varied, but I wish that there were just a few more puzzle ideas to break up the times when it feels like the game ran out of ideas and popped in another MFT puzzle. Endure those, and Deliver Us Mars is a great game that balances the narrative with allowing the player to have agency. It is further proof that sci-fi stories don't need to involve aliens or explosions, and the humanity within the game's story is admirable.
