Hey there, Colonists!
For every fellow space enthusiast, the space suit is an essential element for survival. Mars definitely does not have easy conditions, so you need a specialized outfit on the Red Planet!
Mars is cold during the day and even colder during the night. With its really thin atmosphere, you won’t be protected at all from the sun’s radiation. Don’t expect to breathe the air either: with less than 0.2% oxygen and 96% carbon dioxide, you’ll be dead in seconds. (Remember the decompression scene in Total Recall?) Finally, you’ll spend a lot of time exploring Mars and harvesting — staying hydrated will be crucial to avoid returning to your base too often.
That’s why we’re proud to present ROKH’s in-game space suit.
Your gear is one of your most important allies in ROKH. The practical backpack allows you to take a lot of stuff with you: scanning devices, resource extraction tools, weapons….
Please note that the concept shows only the basic level. In ROKH, you’ll be able to upgrade your suit by crafting some awesome new modules, items or simply improvements of specific parts.
Remember, ROKH occurs in a near future era, so the space suit follows that timeline. That means no lightsabers or minimalist breathing devices. We have designed the space suit with inspiration from already existing (or prototyped) technologies. This also applies to the other devices, tools and weapons you’ll encounter in ROKH. On the artwork above, you can see how we’ve developed precise and scientifically accurate gear.
Check out the GIF below of the 3D modeled space suit for the basic level (some parts are not colored yet, like the embedded screen on the left arm or the backpack). Pretty cool, right?
What’s Coming Up Next?
Our next article will pursue the space suit, again with really cool artwork.
Have a great day, Colonists!
