EGOSOFT develops and publishes its own computer game products, the games of the X series. It’s a series of space simulation sandbox games, played as action games from a first-person perspective in a living breathing universe, with TRADE FIGHT BUILD THINK as the common tagline. Each game consists of a huge universe, simulated from the bottom up. Hundreds of stations, and thousands of ships, trade goods among them- selves. This economy is linked directly to the simulation of major conflicts in a universe with dynamically acting factions.
