How does it work? What's the objective? How many bosses must I face?
Space Trader is easy to learn, but a challenge to master. Your goal is to make as much money as possible in the time you're given. You Buy, Travel, Sell, and repeat - while taking on dangerous Bounty missions on the side for extra cash.
Disasters can influence how much commodities are worth on different planets; taking advantage of them can mean the difference between topping the score board and bankruptcy. Stash is hidden around levels, and grabbing it nets you free items to sell off - in Multiplayer it becomes a mad dash between Traders to see whom can find the stash and claim it first. Best of all, Space Trader features a free demo that you can download and try out right now!
See it in action.This is a video of Space Trader way back in its alpha stages. A lot has changed since then but we still wanted to show it off!
There's tons of stuff to see and do in Space Trader, and it can appeal to both casual and hardcore gamers. Don't like the strategic trading very much? Play it like a First Person Shooter and go on bounty missions to earn your fortune! Hate First Person Shooters? The game can be played with out taking combat missions, and becomes a point and click thinking man's game.
Here's what other people on GGE are saying...

I joined the beta thinking there'd probably be a huge download and enrollment process, I was actually playing within about a minute! Stunning! I'm really impressed with the slickness of this game and the bounty hunter missions are fantastic.
This game was surprisingly (and refreshingly) different. I was particularly surprised at the combat.

I like the idea that you not only can explore to different planets to trade, but you can explore within those stations as well.
Why read about it when you can try it out?
