Manage your shipping empire and attempt to take over the world
Resource management games are a fairly broad genre. You've got the base builders and the simulation games, but every so often you've got games that are almost entirely about one single thing: aquiriing and reallocating resources. The most famous title we can think of is Cookie Clicker, but there are several other games in the genre. Today, we check out another game that fits this mold, Lumo Deliveries, to see how it stands against other more well known titles.

Hitting the trails in a vital trade role is rewarding, but dependent on time investment
Centuries ago, picking up a special trinket or a necessary item wasn't as simple as driving down to the local big box store. Villages and towns in the Middle Ages often went without specialty goods, often settling for what was available in the local area if other items weren't readily available. However, traveling merchants filled a vital role in delivering products from far and wide, from the everyday to the extraordinary. While many of these road-worthy individuals likely enjoyed their treks across the land, the appeal to a life of wheeling and dealing was in the money to be made. For those curious about what the life of a carriage-bound trader might have been like so long ago, Forever Entertainment SA's Merchants of Kaidan offers a taste without an exorbitant investment.
