It's important to mention that it's a Haemimont game and they have now plenty of experience with City-builders. I expect a solid game on release already unlike many other games published by Paradox.
My all time favorite games:
Master of Orion, Civil War II: Generals,  Armada 2526 Supernova, Star Trek: Birth of the Federation, Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom, Imperium Galactica I, Conquest: Frontier Wars, Master of Orion III, Spartan, Civilization III, Knights of Honor, Takeda 2 and 3, Horizon, Master of Orion Conquer the stars.

Favorite games by Haemimont:
Rising Kingdoms, Omerta: city of gangsters, Celtic Kings: Punic Wars, Glory of the Roman Empire, Imperium Romanum and Grand Ages: Rome

RPS has an article w/link to a Gamescom gameplay trailer. https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2017/08/27/meteors-rain-on-the-red-planet-in-surviving-mars-trailer/

I'm usually pretty patient about release dates etc. but I want this NOW!

I watched a couple preview let's play videos and it looks good.  Reminds me of Banished on Mars, which is just what I want.

Surviving Mars is get to be released any minute  O0

i am watching preview Let's Plays since a week and got real exited about it  ...and impulse bough it this morn  :D
here is a good Let's play by a for Grogheads maybe also well known and trusted youtuber,  Mr. DasTactic



i like the Mars & science theme paired with tranquillity to watch (you can micro but you don't have too) how things unfold and the challenge ...and it looks very good and cute too when zooming in and horizontal view at the landscape

not a wargame some one might say
but i saw a start screen at YT that spoke about an invasion as one of the possible random events for the mid?/end? game you can chose from 
well, i didn't wanted to spoil my experience so i didn't opened the video in question of that preview series
(IIRC  it was number #22 with 40 min episodes each so i guess those thing happen quite some good time into the game)

It's not Tropico, that's for sure. It's pretty solid, but oddly unambitious and the early game can be a bit slow (and then the late game lacks drive).

I miss Juanito.

It's still pretty good, but it'll either get better over time through DLC (a la PDS titles) or the next one will be great (a la Tropico 4 vs. T3).
