TransOcean: The Shipping Company is a strategic economic game created by the German company astragon. In production, we take on the position of the president of a transport company, which transports a variety of goods by sea and we try to fulfil the most lucrative contracts, which allow for the continuous development of the company. We operate in 55 ports all over the world - each of them has a different specialization and capacity to accommodate ships of different sizes.
Starting the game, we have at our disposal only a few of the smallest units and licenses to transport the basic and cheapest goods. Along with the execution of subsequent orders and their timely delivery, other manufacturers come to us, and the transported cargoes become definitely more attractive from a financial and prestigious point of view.
Progress in the game entails investment in the fleet - during the game we gain access to 20 types of ships. Each of them can be appropriately improved and extended, as well as making necessary repairs and inspections. Production also enables us to observe the processes involved in loading and exchanging goods in the docks.
Conducting business is facilitated by a clear and detailed panel, in which we comprehensively manage our company and review transport offers available on the market. The game is also characterized by volatile market and economic conditions, which are influenced by various events related to the economic situation of countries, the state of the most important stock exchanges or companies serviced by our company.
TransOcean: The Shipping Company offers fun in two views. The first of them presents an overview map of the world together with all the orders realized by our company - from its level we also gain access to all business and financial options as well as the panel of ship expansion. On the other hand, upon arrival at the port, we can supervise the process of exchange of goods, looking at the movement of individual machines and transport vessels.
