Capitalism Lab is a business management simulation game with the aim of creating a large business empire.
The basic gameplay involves using your capital (money) to compete for profits (or for specific victory conditions) across multiple cities against other corporations, utilizing concepts like retailing, farming, manufacturing, branding, conducting research & development, advertising the products, managing the supply chain and managing ur firm in the in-game stock market.
There’s a lot of considerations to be made, such as the quality and cost of materials available, shipping costs, wage levels, how much technology (R&D) affects the quality of the final product versus how much the quality of the raw material used matters, Also noting the fact that how much the people in the following cities care about prices, quality, etc.
