Description:

In Periorbis you represent a newly formed interstellar asteroid mining company and your aim is to mine, transport and sell more precious ore than your competitors.

Over the course of the game, you will build up your mining operations by allocating your employees to one of 5 specialist professions; engineer, agent, miner, captain, and scientist.

Nine asteroids move into and out of the range of your freighter fleet as they orbit the planet, making it important to plan ahead. Set up mining bases on the asteroids that you want before your competition gets there first, and research better technology in time to reach asteroids that are further away.

In Periorbis, there is plenty of opportunity for skillful play to be rewarded as you vie with the other players to hire specialist employees and to sign up to the most lucrative contracts. There are also advantages to be gained from supplying ore to the trading ships at the most opportune moment.

Do you have what it takes to outdo the competition and build the most successful mining operation?
