"The Corporate Machine" is a board-game like manager game. You are the manager of a freshly founded company (usually called a "start-up" in the new economy). Your goal: become number one and get rich. The problem is, that there are other companies which are much bigger than your own - and they don't like your goals :)

Four business branches are available: cars, computers, airplanes and food. It's possible to play multiplayer with up to 8 players (LAN and Stardock.net).

In Germany (and probably in other countries, too), this game sold so bad that the publisher himself decided to throw it out of the window for a wholesale price of about $0.50. They didn't even re-release it with a different cover or remove the box (there's a DVD case inside) - they just seem to want to get rid of it before the boxes begin to decompose.
