Old game with slay like mechanic, but with businesses?

Post by Guybrush » Wed Jan 27, 2016 11:25 am

Hi,

I hope I don't cause offence by talking about other non-slay games, but I am hoping someone can help.

Many years ago there was a game (PC i think) that had a slay-like mechanic, but the territories represented businesses. The bigger the territory, the bigger and better the business. It also had a rudimentary stock market, with the price linked to the growth of the business. You could take over other business, or merge them, by joining adjacent businesses. Can anyone remember this game? Maybe i just dream it! If so sound like a great premise for a game.

Cheers,
Ian

Yes I do remember that game, and the remakes going along with it.
I don't have its name in mind though. Some of those remakes where in space, others with hostel companies...

@flap, thanks for the reply. It's good to know I have not dreamt it or made it up. I hope someone can remember what it was called.

Thanks to the game, I once realized for myself that the larger the territory, the more profitable the business. So I decided to start doing electronic commerce. But starting a business on your own is very difficult, so I turned to the specialists https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dEEfLvnJK0 for help, who walked me through step-by-step instructions on how to create this type of business.
How are you ?
