Per Aspera is a planetary simulation/strategy experience that combines hard science fiction and base building.

Take control of an Artificial Consciousness named AMI, whose prime directive is anything but simple: terraform Mars into a lush, verdant paradise and prepare it for human colonization. But you aren’t the first to attempt this mission, and as you face the hardships before you, in time you may uncover the truth of their fate.

Explore a sprawling map based on real geographical data from NASA, harvest valuable resources from the surface, and experiment with various colonizing strategies as you transform a dead world into a new home for life in our solar system. City building has never been this astronomical!

Combining hard science fiction and base building, Per Aspera will challenge players on a scale never before seen in the genre, with an all-star cast of voice actors such as Troy Baker, Phil LaMarr and more.

With the nearest help being 140 million miles away, what risks are you willing to take to achieve the mission?

Raw Fury and Tlön Industries are excited to share Per Aspera VR is coming to Meta Quest 2 on February 9th, 2023 for $24.99.
