Like every week, the Epic Store is giving you presents again: This time it’s off into space, in the sci-fi adventure Obduction and in the offworld Trading Company mix-up strategy. The promotion runs from July 15-22, 2021 a 17:00 o’clock. As usual, the games belong to your Epic account permanently if you grab them during the promotional period.
As always, the most important question is: Are the two games for you at all? We want to clarify the question now and introduce both games to you.
Genre: Adventure | Developer: Cyan | Release: 24. August 2016
Obduction – Like Myst, only different
Obduction already has a few years under his belt, but can still convince optically with the pretty landscapes. Those of you who have VR glasses can rejoice, by the way, because the title supports the popular products from the Valve Index to the HTC Vive to the Oculus Rift.
The adventure begins when you come across a strange alien artifact on a night walk. That teleports you across the universe to an alien planet, which strangely enough also houses many objects from earth. What is the secret of this strange place?

Offworld Trading Company
Genre: Development strategy | Developer: Mohawk Games | Release: February 28, 2019
What is … Offworld Trading Company? – Capitalism on Mars
In Offworld Trading Company you plunge into the battle for resources on Mars. But if you think of tanks and heavily armed infantry flattening enemy bases, you are mistaken. Because in the mix of structure and strategy you act like a businessman and try to defeat your competitors through economic action.
So basically it’s about a species Race between the individual Martian colonies
In addition, a flourishing underworld forms quite quickly on Mars, which you can also use for your strategy to eliminate the adversaries. And as befits an economic simulation, there is also a stock market that can be eagerly traded on. Because every player actively influences the market, you have to adjust your own plan again and again in the course of a game in order to emerge as the winner.
