A turn-based, perma-death, realistic space strategy game. With dice. And cannibalism.
These are a few of our favorite moments. Each game of Tharsis is unique, and interesting situations always arise.
TIP: Each module has an ability. You can get food, repair the ship, even reduce stress or gain more assist.
We wanted the ship to be modernized and relevant, but also have a retro feel. These Iktomi renderings by Rupy helped set the tone for the whole game.
