MarsCorp is a beacon of cooperation, collaboration and friendship. This is because the advance personality tests developed by Happiness Inc. ensure that every element of human capital assigned to the mission has the temperament and attitude that will allow them to work productively as part of a team while adhering to the MarsCorp values of truth, honesty and cost reduction. This pre-mission personnel screening means there is almost 0% chance of anyone on MarsCorp engaging in adverse, unlawful activity. In the almost impossible event of any unlawful activity, the base manager (or their appointed delegate) will combat the action swiftly and decisively.
Even in the planned “paradise” of MarsCorp, some of the worst human traits can still show themselves. Hob, gets an early morning call from the bossman and finds herself facing a very Earth-like problem; moyder! *Ahem* Sorry, we mean, murder. Someone’s stuck a Martian full of holes and Hob and Jim are the ones who need to find out why.
While they track down the killer, Hob also has to try and maintain order on base of scared Martians, which means the one-man security department has a lot of work on its hands.

The MarsCorp “Community”
There is no community, obviously. What are we, communists? But if you would like discuss MarsCorp and its many intricacies – What’s Martin’s favourite medication? Are Hob and [insert character]going to bang? Why is the intro music so good? – then you should head over to the MarsCorp subreddit!
