I like the game I hate the game but like oh no
Escape from Mars
You are a maintenance man working at Mars Base 1. Whilst repairing an antenna off-base you receive a garbled distress call from back at base. Something about utility robots going haywire and taking the colonists hostage. You rush back to the airlock to investigate...
Upon arrival at each base level, your priority should be to restore power to that level and find the airlock key to exit via the second airlock. Make use of everything you find along the way and disable hostile robots you encounter - or find a way to sneak past. The game is mouse controlled.

The game was pretty good. Walking around could could get tedious, so I wish there was a way to speed things up sometimes, but the game was overall still very nice.
The ambiance was well done, and the game play is interesting. I love when people do cool stuff with the turn based genre. The UI, tone, and world also gave me a System Shock vibe.
Very cool game! I liked the puzzles and the atmosphere you've created in the game. I also liked the fact that there was no music, only sound effects. This really created that eerie vibe to the game :D
I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)
Cool, but need path-finding, to move around corners.
The idea of using movement on a tile based floor to evade enemies is cool... to bad once you avoid it it comes and bites you in the ass! :)) The puzzles are there :) with the abandoned lonesome feel and the art is nice too!
This game is amazing! :D There is a dense ambiance, getting closer to those fans is suggestive, the abandoned base is frightening (would be even scarier, when you'd decide to flood area with darkness and the protagonist would have a flashlight and can see only what is lit!). The code in a "new alphabet" is amazing, I was looking for it with curiosity ;)
