Kiwi-made co-operative steampunk puzzle-adventure 39 Days to Mars now has a Steam page, so you can pop it on your wishlist at your leisure.

Created by Christchurch-based Philip Buchanan, 39 Days raised NZ$3424 via Kickstarter in early 2014, and then worked its way through Steam's Greenlight programme.

"Embark on the 19th century's most unreliable spaceship in this two-player couch co-op adventure," its Steam tagline reads.

A fuller description:

39 Days to Mars is a mix of puzzle-adventure and resource management. You play as Sir Albert Wickes and The Right Honourable Clarence Baxter, two 19th century explorers who have been chosen to pilot the HMS Fearful on its maiden voyage to Mars. This spaceship is the pinnacle of Victorian engineering, designed by the brightest minds of the age. However, Albert and Baxter are not the brightest anything, and are both eminently unqualified to be piloting a spaceship.

You must keep the two explorers alive through the trip by attending to their needs, while at the same time keeping the ship from falling apart and solving the problems that arise. It's fairly clear that steam power is not the most reliable option for interstellar transportation.

Buchanan calls the game a mix of action and thoughtful puzzles with a strong "romantic age of steam travel" feeling.

The entire adventure fits comfortably into an evening, and with two lead characters, it's designed to be played co-operatively with a friend. However, there's a computer-controlled cat to help you out on a solo voyage.
