Avaneya is a cerebral science fiction game set on Mars currently under
active development (GPLv3). It combines the perfect blend of the
metropolis city builder social simulation, real time strategy, and
cooperative multiplayer. It explores mature themes in social justice,
politics, ecology, economics, and more.

images ever returned from the surface of Mars. Our studio recovered a
substantial amount of NASA's previously inaccessible Viking mission

We will have a lot more to showcase with you over the coming weeks,
including already complete beautiful concept artwork.
