Description from the packaging.

Lord British presents Ultima Worlds of Adventure 2.

1893. The World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Astronomer Percival Lowell's colossal space cannon is poised to hurl a huge bullet-ship to Mars. Then disaster strikes! The cannon discharges a day early with dozens of history's leading figures aboard. Unprepared for the rigors of Mars, the accidental space travelers have little chance of surviving. You must rescue the stranded expedition or history will be forever changed!

Fact-filled fantasy adventure.
Martian Dreams is the first alternative history adventure in the Ultima series, combining what we now know of Mars with the imaginings of writers and scientists of the 1890's.

  • Solve the mysteries of the Martian canals, steam-powered factories, radium-driven mechanical men, and other artifacts.

  • Battle plant-creatures and worm-like monsters.
  • Interact with some of history's most renowned men and women, painstaking researched and accurately portrayed- meet and learn about Sarah Bernhardt, Nellie Bly, George Washington Carver, Marie Curie, Thomas Edison, Sigmund Freud, Emma Goldman, William Randolph Hearst, Vladimir Lenin, Grigori Rasputin, Theodore Roosevelt, Nikola Tesla, Mark Twain, H.G. Wells, and dozens more!
