About This Game
From the lead designer of Civilization IV comes a new kind of strategy game: Offworld Trading Company, an economic strategy game.
Mars has been colonized and has invited you to lend a hand to make sure the new colony has a shot at success. But you're not the only one that's been invited, other business rivals are here as well and they have no qualms about playing dirty to gain the choicest territories on the Martian surface and driving their competitors out of business.
With space travel becoming a reality and the easy-to-reach resources on Earth dwindling, hopeful people seeking their fortune are rushing to the next great frontier: Mars. Rekindle humanity’s adventurous spirit by leaving Earth behind and make a new name for yourself as a titan of industry on the red planet.
Determine the fate of the Martian colonization effort in the dynamic single-player campaign mode. Multiple types of CEOs, each with unique traits and abilities, deliver many hours of discovery into their motivations and how they intend to dominate the future of Mars.
Turn your friends into frenemies! With a robust and exciting multiplayer mode that can support up to eight players, no two games of Offworld Trading Company are the same! The market fluctuates depending on which of the four starting corporations you and your opponents choose and what resources you accumulate. Strategy is key, and tenuous alliances between rivals are easily broken when the opportunity arises.
While it may be sci-fi, there are no guns or weapons to use as ammo here. Instead, you'll have to use the market itself to grow and take down your enemies. For only through success can they fail. You must be always watching it, you'll need to make sure your enemies don't get too powerful, else you'll find yourself under their heel. Every game is different, so be prepared to adapt to what comes, and then what comes next.
