Offworld Trading Company relieves you of the burden of having to conquer, colonize, or support life on Mars. Instead, it challenges you to bring the magic of capitalism to the (ironically) red planet, building an economic hub to expand Martian industry and make a fortune selling resources back to Earth. This weekend provides a great opportunity to sate your desire for profit, with a free weekend for the game already underway.
