PC for sure. The effects make the game feel better... when your group loses that bit of health, and then there's that UMPH - it adds more to the game.
Granted it could work as a board game, but I think PC is where it's home is.

Haven't played much to get into strategies yet (not even made it to Mars), but I am already seeing that there is definitely a depth to the game which is overlooked when you first start playing.

It looks very pretty for the type of game it is. I would say it has it's own authentic art style, so not really a stunner but it has it's charm.

Feels good... though not much really to talk about. The sounds have their impacts when shit starts hitting the fan, but nothing extraordinary.

Very well, no issues at all, as one would expect with this type of game.

The game makes me so angry. But I keep trying again... I don't know why. It's brutal in all meanings of the word, it will tear you apart, and you'll be screaming at your monitor... but somehow, it feels worth it.

How do gamers feel when they start playing Tharsis

It's a game where if I feel lucky that day, I'll jump in and give it another go.
It could definitely use more content though. The devs have confirmed free DLC's on the way, but it's that type of game where if you haven't made it to the end... something is itching, to make you want to try again.
