What is the gameplay like in Terraformers? Manage your colony, meet the expectations of the inhabitants and found new cities to keep expanding your settlements.

In addition, you send your people out to explore Mars and secure resources for yourself. Mine metals and use them to upgrade infrastructure, like a transportation system that allows you to exchange between the different settlements.

The construction system works via building cards whose resource requirements you have to meet in order to “play” the desired object and thus be able to place it. In rounds, the buildings can produce new resources again. However, you have to act quickly, if your residents are dissatisfied, this can quickly lead to the end of the game.

In addition, terraforming should not be missing. Erupt a volcano or crash ice asteroids on the planet to change your environment.
