    Is it going to be 2D?
    How does it compare to Waking Mars, because that's the first thing I think of when I hear IOS, Mars, and jetpack?

    yes its 2d. its basically all about mining for gems and what not, with quests, aliens, guns. its a bit similar to terraria - has very ambient and atmospheric music.

    Also, those aren't concepts, those are the actual buildings in the game.

    Is it similar to I Dig It and Motherload in terms of movement and mining?

    There are defined blocks, of stuff. I suppose that part is more like minecraft. However, I love I Dig it. :) Its got a similar mechanic where you go down, mine for stuff, then bring it back to the surface, refuel, revive, craft, etc.

    Cool song clip. Great atmosphere and creepy, explorational goodness.

    Seems pretty cool! Are the graphics 2d or 3d?

    Is there a trailer coming soon?

    Can you build anything yourself?

    Its a 2d game, with some of the elements pre-rendered in 3d.

    Yes - you will be able to build, outside of the main story mode.

    We're doing two multiplayer modes, one cooperative and one which will allow building - as well as the main single player story that follows the history of why you are there, what your purpose is, etc.

    Here's a night time shot, in the city where you return your gems to be refined and cut.
