When this was announced we were presented with a general framework:

App enabled Robinson.
Mars settings.
Leaning more towards realism than sci-fi fantasy.

... but has more come out? I poke into this forum every once in a while, but outside of all the caterwauling about the digital embellishments, I haven't seen much detail given about this.

How many scenarios will be included?
Is the app shipping with Robinson levels of variety, or more?
Any changes to how the cards will work (i.e. is the app being used to track all those amazing possibilities that would be hard-to-impossible to track with cards alone)?

To be clear: apps have memory, where cards do not. The app can know what has come before, and play off that (either in scaling difficulty up or down, or even taking the interconnected encounter idea to the next level). Yet all this *possibility* remains in the realm of speculation -- I've not heard whether Ignacy plans to approach things in this manner.

*Edit: Hah! I just scanned the forum for this game, and realized the VERY first post was one by me, entitled "Any Concrete Information?" Heh.. I didn't remember that, so now the titling of this feels even more appropriate.

Have to make sure that you collect enough sulphur, martian soil, and have a large enough fire......

I wonder if it will come with a "Robinson Crusoe on Mars" scenario, just like the 1964 movie?
