“I want to give 80% of the profits from the game to SpaceX. In that way, the game will not only serve the important purpose of entertaining people and arousing their interest in Mars, but will also help Elon Musk and SpaceX to achieve this” wrote Lyubomir.
Here are some of his tweets with the game:
A lot of people were joking about the player walking his pet cyber truck on a leash, so I decided to show what happens when it gets unleashed. (also some people wanted to see more gameplay). Video here: https://t.co/vVrZeNqeAd pic.twitter.com/Hb8egrAcdN
