Galactic Merchant is sci-fi business simulator (aka space tycoon game). Starting from small startup with single cargo ship you can grow your company to intergalactic monopoly.

To do so, you could trade, prospect, produce goods, smuggle, rob, give bribes, engage in politics, save lives and use many other options.

During the game you will learn many economical concepts and built-in calculation sheet will help you to use them in practice.

Make business in galaxy-wide economic system

Each planet is unique market and all of the markets are interdependent.

All of them are influenced by your decisions, actions of other market players as well as events, which happen all the time.

The economic conditions are dynamic and you have to adapt in order to be profitable.

Manage your company

You can achieve your strategic goals by growing company assets: ships, factories and personnel.

Not always more means simply better - with upgrades you can get better margins on your trades and make a good profit even on lower trade volume.

At some point your company may be too big to mange by yourself alone. In such case you can hire managers and directors to run parts of your company on your behalf. However, you still bear responsibility for company and you need to evaluate your leadership team and make changes to keep up to speed.

Still want more?

At the moment you become intergalactic corporation you will be able to acquire other companies to grow even faster.

Plan your investments and cut costs

There are multiple options for you to make profit over time.

Sometimes you have to spend money at present to get profit in several quarters ahead.

Make profit

To help you explore different options there is fully functional calculation sheet to aid your decisions.

There is also comprehensive help, which will help you to sharpen your economic skills and apply them in practice.
