Hermitworks has updated their original release, Spacetrader with Spacetrader: Merchant Marine. This latest incarnation has you flying throughout the galaxy trading everything from iron ore to organs.
SpaceTrader has you starting out in a space port with your newly acquired trading license and little else. The first objective is to work your way into the good graces of a benefactor who will front you the money to get started. As is with most wealthy benefactors, there's a catch, you must go and shoot someone who owes him some money first before her will help you."
