Welcome to the year 2043. Information drives the new economy. Secrets can create and destroy empires. Corporate Brokers lead the shadow war, manipulating secrets to grow their own power while devastating their enemies… they’ll do whatever it takes to come out ahead.

In Net Gain, the player take on the role of a corporate broker, hired by a powerful conglomerate to sabotage their competitors by any means. You’re in charge of investigating targets, planning missions, assembling teams, and leading the operation to success. All in a world that’s rapidly changing every day…

As a broker, the player works for a corporation, running their shadow war against all competitors to bring down their enemy, claim more of the global markets, and expand into an increasingly powerful conglomerate!

The Corporation is built upon a foundation of Companies: Laboratories, factories, and offices that develop, produce, and utilize ”Assets”. Assets are the cutting edge of the economic world, and encompass a vast range of things: shiny new gadgets, novel marketing campaigns, brilliant scientists, land claims to rare earth minerals, political candidates, military defense contracts, celebrities, security systems, virtual reality programs… All can be used to gain unique advantages on the market, or to gain more power and wealth.

Of course, with competition as heated as it is, the Broker is always looking for a way to steal the advantage… The core of the game is building and completing missions to gain more power, secure your own fortune, or to steal from a rival! You’ll use missions to collect intelligence on your competition through a variety of means, earning enough to expose a target of opportunity! The main targets are your rival’s assets, which you can destroy or even steal for your own.

You string together “Plots”, small moments during a mission with unique challenges that your operatives must overcome to progress. The kinds of plots you use to reach your target can vary depending on what your target is and what exactly you intend to do! If you wish to “steal” a Personnel asset, you could choose plots that lead your team to befriend them, convincing them to flee and join your side. You might use plots to uncover dirt, blackmailing them into working for you. Or, you might just simply bribe them (simple, that is, after you sneak your operatives through layers of corporate security to get the offer to your target)!
