After the Great Collapse, hope died for most of us on Earth. The asteroids were supposed to provide us with limitless resources, but their promise was stolen by a corrupt monopoly. The powerful enforce a status quo dedicated to protecting their interests, leaving the rest of us fighting over scraps. Mars is the last chance for anyone who still believes they can make something of themselves.It's time to stake your claim.Time to head Offworld.

Graphic is relatively simple but I find it very appealing.
Game itself looks interesting kind of like Anno in space.

Here is a new interview form GameWatcher with Soren Johnson.

Link - http://www.gamewatcher.com/interview…nterview/12129
GameWatcher: Is there anything else about the game that you’d like to communicate to Gamewatcher readers that we haven’t already touched upon?

Soren Johnson: Two things I want to emphasize for people because they sometimes assume the opposite. This is a game that is going to be a great single player game. We talk about the multiplayer because that’s where you have so much fun, but primarily we’re seeing it as a great single player experience.

The other thing is that while the game is very much about building up an infrastructure and creating this profitable business, there are a lot of systems and mechanics that put you in direct contact with the other players, whether that’s racing for claims or. There are these auctions that come up where you’re bidding directly against other players for a plot or patent. There’s the piracy where you’re choosing to attack different players or the black market where you can buy dynamite, EMPs and power surges and use them to mess with people. These things can be used in combination right, you can get an EMP to knock out power, then use the hacker array to trigger a power shortage which means that suddenly this player doesn’t have a source of power while the price is going up high. So you can watch at the same moment their stock price starts dropping as they go into debt and you can use that opportunity to buy up their stock. There’s definitely a lot of direct interaction.
