Offworld Trading Company is set in the year 2063. Earth has suffered the Great Collapse: a world-wide market meltdown fuelled by human greed and achieved by an artificial intelligence gone rogue.
After the Great Collapse, hope died for most people on Earth. The asteroids were supposed to provide limitless resources, but their promise was stolen by a corrupt monopoly. The powerful enforce a status quo dedicated to protecting their interests, leaving the rest of humanity fighting over scraps. Mars is the last chance for anyone who still believes they can make something of themselves. It's time to stake your claim – time to head Offworld.
Offworld Trading Company is a real-time strategy game from Civilization IV lead designer Soren Johnson in which money, not firepower, is the weapon of choice. Lead your developing companies in cutthroat economic warfare against other companies looking to become the dominant economic power on Mars.
