Description

Space Trader is easy to learn, but a challenge to master. Your goal is to make as much money as possible in the time you're given. You travel through the solar system visiting different planets, buying, selling, and repeating - all while taking on dangerous Bounty missions on the side for extra cash.

Disasters can influence how much commodities are worth on different planets; taking advantage of them can mean the difference between topping the score board and bankruptcy. Stash is hidden around levels, and grabbing it nets you free items to sell off - in our co-operative multiplayer it becomes a mad dash between Traders to see whom can find the stash and claim it first.

There are many different Challenges to choose from, each one with a different objective and new places to visit. Stake your claim between Earth and The Moon, or try a larger challenge that takes you through all the of planets of the inner solar system. Fight crime bosses, or be purely a Trader - the choice of how you complete each challenge is yours.
