The first in a series of games based in the rich Mistbound universe, Greed Corp is set in a world of feudal warfare and environmental destruction through industrial consumption. As one of four warring factions your aim is territorial domination, but at what cost?

Find the delicate balance between harvesting the land for resources and preserving it to stay alive. Will you defend your territory or sacrifice it to keep it out of enemy hands? Manage the finite available resources to build your army and use the collapsing terrain to your advantage. Destroy your enemies, or destroy the very land they stand on, before they do it to you.

Their mining technology is state-of-the art. Their corporate philosophy is to relentlessly strip the land of its resources for maximum financial profit, and anyone or anything that stands in the way of that is just collateral damage. They are the Cartel, a shadowy web of corporations, and the third of the four factions from the turn-based strategy game Greed Corp.

Excelling at pulling everything that is valuable out of the earth, the Cartel are fast, efficient and thoughtless in their single-minded pursuit of profit. Publicly establishing alliances only when it serves their own corporate purpose, their extensive network of spies pursues their true aims unhindered in the background. The Cartel are as trustworthy as jackals.


The unit used to mine the earth’s natural resources is the harvester, and the cartel’s is the best there is. In Greed Corp, the harvester turns land layers and land tiles into spendable credits, but slowly destroys the land itself by doing so. A true tactician, understanding the offensive value of a harvester, can initiate a self-destruct. This can create a strategic advantage, but it will do even more damage to the environment, possibly triggering a chain reaction of collapsing critical tiles.

 

The game features a comprehensive single player campaign, introducing you to the four factions that inhabit the world. A large collection of unique maps is available outside of the campaign, specifically designed for 2, 3, or 4-player battles. Matches can be played with any combination of local, online and AI players, allowing for quick access to multiplayer action and offering multiple unlockables for a variety of challenges.

Featuring an innovative land collapsing mechanic which constantly alters the strategic landscape, you must destroy your enemies or the very land they stand on before they do it to you. Build Harvesters to reap your land for credits and spend them on armories and cannons. Manufacture walkers to conquer enemy territory and order carriers to transport your troops across the map. Ultimately, defeat your enemies by eliminating their troops and destroying or capturing their structures.
