The trailer has been viewed over 30k times
Mars and Earth have approximately the same landmass even though Mars has only 15% of the Earth’s volume, because around two thirds of the Earth’s surface is covered in water. That leaves a lot of terrain for development which is exactly what mayor Citywokcitywall has done in their new Youtube series: City Skylines Mars.
Set in a grim future where Mars has been colonised by a hyper-divided society of the idle rich & exploited poor, the series shows the progress of a detailed multi-level Cities Skylines build.
Everyday... wars, disease, famine, pollution. You see an ad on the subway, "MOVE TO MARS". The commercials tell you a better life awaits, leave your worries behind!
You're on a spaceship, waking up from cryosleep. As you and hundreds of others exit a tunnel into the colony, your heart sinks. Sewage leaks from pipes overhead, trash piles up in corners, thousands cram through dirty open-air markets, others sleep in the streets.
You look up towards the glass dome ceiling. 200 feet above your head a blooming jacaranda sheds its flowers into a gurgling garden fountain.
"How do we get up there?" you ask.
Someone answers, "You can't".
Throughout the series, mayor Citywokcitywall shows the construction of the city and explains their the clever use of assets required to pull it off.
