Dwight Owen Barnes (played by James Coburn), the longtime Chief Executive Officer of the “A-IV Group”, a multinational corporation with diversified assets and interests throughout the world, has just mysteriously disappeared in his private jet. As news reports of the disappearance break, stock in the company falls sharply, and you are swiftly selected as new CEO. Tasked with recovering the company from the downfall and ever further expansion you must prove your leadership fast.

You will be required to buy and sell assets, build and manage the transportation infrastructure necessary to keep the company running, and allocate resources among more than 100 subsidiary companies. These are the tasks you must deal with while maximizing profit, keeping the investors from running you out, and preventing hostile takeovers from rival corporations.
