|Products & Services|
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 tag-line. The X series games are unique in their depth, simulating an entire universe of NPC ships and stations, forming a realistic economy. Each game consists of a huge universe, simulated from the bottom up. Hundreds of stations, and thousands of ships, trade goods among themselves. Prices change based on supply and demand; resources are mined and processed in several stages. This economy is linked directly to the simulation of major conflicts in a universe with dynamically-acting factions. Every player decision can dramatically change the future of the game universe.
|References and export activities|
Fifteen titles (full-price games and expansions combined) have been released in our in-house X game series between 1999 and 2022. We distribute our games worldwide, mainly through digital distribution channels such as Steam. The most important markets for the X series are the US and Germany.
The vast majority of players in the X series are male. There is a wide spread in age. It can be said that the games of the X series appeal to a slightly older target group, in comparison to other PC games, due to their attention to detail and their complexity. The largest group is likely to be between 25-40 years old.
We are the oldest German computer game development studio still in existence that is 100% independent. As a result, we can make our own decisions and work towards our own goals. We feel this is a great asset.
|Ideal Business Partners|
We expect potential business partners in our field to have a deep understanding of the games industry and to be able to go the extra mile to in return work on a fascinating science fiction series of games.
