TERRAFORMING MARS Board Game is Being Adapted as a Movie

Terraforming Mars

Terraforming Mars is a board game that is now being adapted into a feature film from Cobalt Knight, which optioned the right to the game. The game sees players contest to use resources and innovative technology to make the red planet habitable.

Cobalt Knight was founded by video game executives Christopher Kaminski (Sonic the Hedgehog) and Christopher Knox (The Real World), and it was founded to develop a slate of TV and film projects based on video games, board games, manga, comic books, novels, and short stories.

They were leaning towards developing the project into a series, but it seems like a feature movie is a direction they are now looking to go.

Kaminski said in a statement: “The Terraforming Mars world offers incredible storytelling potential. We are excited to explore the unique human drama that inherently comes along with running a company tasked with literally creating oceans, building prosperous cities, and balancing the ecology of plant and animal life.”

Knox added: “In many ways, the game exhibits strong parallels to the Age of Discovery when European superpowers were sailing around the globe trying to lay claim to everything they touched. This makes it the perfect choice for adaptation, using a distinct and hyperrealistic setting to revisit a familiar narrative conflict.”

Enoch Fryxelius, co-developer of Terraforming Mars and CEO, added, “Jacob and the rest of us brothers have invested many years in Terraforming Mars. It’s much more than just another sci-fi board game – it’s a vision of a possible and positive future for humanity not so far down the road. It’s based on real science ideas and ideas borrowed from science fiction. This could be us in 200 years. We are so excited to see this vision come to life on the screen. We hope this will expand the TM community even further. And we hope that more people will be gripped by the vision of a new home for humanity on Mars.”
