But OTC is a rather tightly designed piece of work, it’s a game that feeds you very few rules and depending on your faction, there’ll be some changes to those rules, but despite it’s apparent simplicity, there’s a great deal of depth in play that’s hiding below the surface, ready to burst out and eat your face. For that reason, I’m more than thankful for the generous array of difficulty settings, not to mention the high quality tutorial that the developer included here. You definitely can come into this as a strategy greenhorn and it will tell you its rules, and even how to win (and keep on winning).
You’ll learn to manage your income from resources versus outgoing expenditures, you’ll learn that debt is just a temporary thing, and you’ll learn how to lie, cheat, steal and sabotage your way to victory. Now what more could one possibly ask for? Ultimately, Offworld Trading Company will simply take you by the hand and show you its ways, and then it’s very much up to you to tell it how hard you want it to trounce you, and yes, it probably will.
