Just curious if the book The Martian by Andy Weir inspired this game. It is a fun book. The game seems to emulate the book very well. Maybe you could make an expansion with a rover.

more so some of Robert Heinlein's short stories. "Searchlight" is one such tale.

I have a huge collection of science fiction books, but never read anything by Andy Weir. I'll take a look, thanks.
