While Curiosity finishes its first round of drilling for Martian soil samples, we take you a few hundred years into the future, where human colonization on the Red Planet has failed, through these 4 exclusive screenshots.

Welcome to the cyberpunk universe of Mars War Logs, the new RPG from Spiders Studio! Discover Mars, a world in the midst of civil war, where native populations consist of mutants, religious fanatics, and bandits likely to kill you to steal your water. Mars also features human enclaves led by despotic leaders, huge dangerous slums built by the survivors of the extraordinary planet-wide cataclysm that shook the planet 200 years ago. Mars also features treacherous landscapes and a murderous sun. If solar radiation doesn't strip your skin off, the dangerous creatures will take on the task with incredible ferocity.

These 4 screenshots start showing some of the obstacles Roy and his companions must overcome during their journey across the Red Planet.

Mars War Logs plunges you into a thrilling cyberpunk RPG on the Red Planet. You will develop Roy and his combat style by choosing from dozens of skills and perks. Pick from pure combat, stealth and trickery, or fierce Technomancer powers. The choice is yours! The real-time combat system requires both reflexes and tactics while you battle fearsome opponents and Mars' most terrifying creatures in dynamic combat. The crafting system lets you create and modify equipment to maintain an edge over your enemies. Dialogue choices as well as your actions will influence the destiny of everyone Roy crosses paths with...and perhaps the fate of all the colonies on Mars. Mars War Logs will be released in Spring 2013 on Xbox LIVE®, PlayStation®Network and PC.
