Stardock brings 2001's The Corporate Machine to Steam

Stardock is digging into its old-school library and bringing the 2001 real-time economic strategy game The Corporate Machine to Steam for the first time.


Corporations and the like are as much a hot button topic in the future as they are in the present. Stardock foresaw this back in 2001 with its real-time economic strategy game known as The Corporate Machine. Now Stardock is bringing it to Steam for the first time.

The Corporate Machine puts players in the role of an intergalactic CEO that must use economic strategy to control the galaxy and put their competitors out of business. Players can specialize in marketing, engineering, or manufacturing while consolidating their power across automobiles, aircraft, and computers. Steam features will include online multiplayer for up to eight players.

It should be noted that this is the 2001 game as you remember it, visuals and all. Don't look for any remastered graphics here, but simply look for the game as it was. The Steam version of The Corporate Machine is out now with a $9.99 price tag. For more, check out the trailer below.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
