I thought this game was mentioned on here, but couldn't find it in the search. I have been eyeing Offworld Trading Company for a little while now and just noticed that EGS (Epic Game Store) is currently giving it away for free. Least this will give me a chance to try this one out, I liked the RTS aspect of the game, but I didn't know how I would like managing the whole economy as well. There is about 10 DLC packs and 2 expansions as well, anyone already own this one have any thoughts?

I own it. I played the tutorial ages ago and thought it was an ingenious take on an RTS.  I, however, am too stupid to play it well.

Never tried it, and even as a free game it doesn't flip my switch. I love ships first and foremost and space a close second. I'm also a bit of a warmonger in my games. So while the sci-fi setting is definitely a plus... It's reminds me of CIV games too much to give it a pass. (Yes I know, I'm a heathen, I don't care for the Civ series)

I have never played any of the Civilization games.... managing every aspect of a civilization is not fun for me... I play games for fun not work 🙂 So if Offworld Trading Company is like this it will be short lived on my PC 😉

Offworld Trading Company is nothing like Civ.  It really is not like any other strategy game I have ever seen.

Can you give us a few words on it? what's combat like? Terrestrial or in space? What about the economy, how does it work? is it mine and sell?

There is no combat in the game.

There is a player driven market of resources/products/stocks partly based on supply & demand.

You buy/sell/gather/produce these things, but business is fueled by loans, and taking on as much debt as you can reasonably manage I guess (idk, I'm no economist)
