Austin, TX - November 8, 2012 – Tiger Style Games, developer of the Game of the Year award winner Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor , is proud to announce the release today of the iOS best seller Waking Mars for Android devices as well as Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs. The PC version is available for purchase for $9.99 via http://www.tigerstylegames.com/wakingmars/buy-now/ and via the Humble Android Bundle 4. For Android devices, Waking Mars is available on Google Play for $4.99 and also via the Humble Android Bundle 4.

It is 2097. Life is discovered on Mars. And it is your mission to make first contact. But when you become trapped by a thunderous cave-in, you must master the mysterious and increasingly complex interconnected ecosystem of more than a dozen unearthly exotic plants and alien creatures to survive.

Waking Mars is a one-of-a-kind adventure where you get to jetpack through a beautiful, vast, open-ended network of Martian caves,” says Randy Smith, co-founder, Tiger Style. “There has never been a game like this where you can manipulate a living, breathing ecosystem. An ecosystem you must understand to unlock the secrets of Mars’ past. And an understanding that will determine whether you succeed – or fail – at surviving and bringing this lost planet back to life.”

Beyond simply porting Waking Mars from iOS to PC, Tiger Style has incorporated a series of key upgrades to enhance game play including:

  • A full cast of professional voice actors and gorgeous new character portraits bring the story of Waking Mars to life (PC and iOS version only)
  • Fluid, seamless support for both gamepad and mouse and keyboard
  • Support for high resolution displays to deliver vivid visuals
  • Optimized performance for PC
 

“There’s a magnificent sense of wonder in discovering all the bizarre creatures the game serves up,” writes Sean Koch, iFanzine Preview, about the iOS version. “This is what gaming bliss is made of, folks!"
