Occupy Mars - simulation game about Mars colonization

Occupy Mars is an upcoming (as of today: TBD 2018) highly technical open world simulation game about Mars colonization from Polish indie game developer Pyramid Games. In the game you will be able to "build and upgrade your base, discover new amazing regions, conduct mining operations, retrieve water and generate oxygen, grow crops, fix broken parts, learn how to survive on Mars!"

Here are some promo images, posters and a trailer from the developer. Note the SpaceX style spacesuit and ITS 2016 spaceship(s) near the base.

SpaceX downscaled ITS spaceship landing on Mars

Fan vision of possible SpaceX's scaled down version of the ITS spaceship (for 9m booster) landing on Mars close to another ship which has already landed; created by NASASpaceFlight.com forum members redliox and tea monster.

We will learn the actual SpaceX design for the scaled down version of the Interplanetary Transport System (ITS) only during Elon Musk's presentation at the 2017 International Astronautical Conference in Adelaide, Australia, September 29.

SpaceX spaceship at Mars base by Bryan Versteeg

Picture of the Day 29/9/16. It was inevitable Elon Musk's presentation of SpaceX Interplanetary Transport System will inspire a lot of fan art based around the design of the Mars Vehicle (could we call the "ship" part of Interplanetary Transport System by the old name - Mars Colonial Transporter?). One of the first is made by talented modern space artist Bryan Versteeg - a Mars base built around a landed SpaceX Mars Colonial Transporter.
