Our Games

Set in classic antiquity, Old World is a historical 4X strategy game created by Soren Johnson (Lead Designer, Civilization IV). Players select a historical leader and use the innovative Orders system to dominate the competition. Leaders are mortal; once they die, the nation’s future depends on their heirs.

Mars has been colonized. Earth’s greatest corporate titans have been invited to build companies to support it. The competition to dominate the market is fierce in Offworld Trading Company–a fast-paced economic RTS from Soren Johnson (Lead Designer, Civilization IV). You must adapt to the changing economy to dominate the competition.
