Twenty years after the extremists have unleashed their weapon of mass destruction the life on Venus is returning to normal state. The Galactic Trading Corporation is investing millions to restore its economy.

Merchant of Venus is a sci-fi space trading game. The player starts with 500,000 cash on hand (awarded by GTC) to buy a freighter and start own business. Trading involves navigating between spaceports to exploit price variations, with manual landings (Lunar Lander style). Buy or sell ten commodities (robots, raw materials, obligatory spice, etc.) and keep the ship repaired and well-fueled.

If the game's name sounds familiar, you're probably thinking of William Shakespeare's 1605 play The Merchant of Venice.
