Concept art from "Dome City" - cancelled VR adventure game set on Mars

"Dome City" was a space adventure video game project with multiplayer (rarely seen in adventure games) and virtual reality support. It was developed by a small indie game developer "Overon Station", relaying on a (unsuccessful) crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, and never left past the pre-Alpha stage. In the game three young characters would be stranded fighting for survival in a domed city on Mars abandoned for 100 years. Sad the game didn't saw its release; the concept was interesting.

Here are some concept art images and a teaser for the game project:

HD images from Mars 2030 VR experience

Mars 2030 VR is the latest education-focused virtual reality simulation set on Mars. It has been launched for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift headsets, soon to come to PlayStation VR, and has been developed in partnership with NASA. MARS 2030 centers on open world exploration, covering ~40 square kilometers of the Mawrth Vallis region, accurately mapped and modeled using MRO HiRISE satellite data. Taking on the role of an astronaut, players traverse Mars and collect geological samples that uncover the planet’s past.

Here are some HD quality images from the game (open link in new tab to view in full resolution):
