Ruthless.com is a simultaneous turn-based strategy game, which pits players in a bitter contest of economic growth and conquest set in the high-stakes world of modern corporate raiding. It combines the crushing grip of business expansion with the rapier strikes of deceit, dirty tricks, and outright crime. Each of the 1-6 players ruthlessly expands his/her empire, overrunning the others and grinding them into yesterday's dust until only one corporation alone wields true dominance.
While text descriptions of Ruthless.com may sound like a business sim, it is not. It is a real-time strategy game whose resource management techniques carry the trappings of the business world. Players are not concerned with spreadsheets and depreciation, but instead with the actions their company takes in a global marketplace.
