The Economy tag in the context of video games refers to a gameplay mechanic or feature that involves managing and manipulating resources within the game world. Games with this tag often simulate economic systems that require players to make strategic decisions about production, trade, and consumption.

In games with an economy mechanic, players typically have control over various resources such as money, materials, or virtual goods. They must allocate these resources wisely to achieve their goals or progress in the game.

Here are some common elements associated with games tagged as Economy:

  • Resource Management In-game resources can include currency, raw materials, energy, or other valuable assets. Players need to gather and manage these resources efficiently to support their objectives - whether it's building structures, crafting items, or upgrading equipment.
  • Trading and Market Systems Many economy-centric games allow players to engage in buying and selling goods through simulated markets or trading mechanics. Players can negotiate prices for goods they produce with non-playable characters (NPCs) or other players.
  • Economic Decision-Making Economic games often challenge players to make important decisions related to resource allocation. These choices may involve investing in infrastructure development versus military expansion, prioritizing research projects over immediate gains, or determining optimal pricing strategies for products.
  • Growth and Profit The aim of many economy-driven games is for players to grow their virtual economies by generating profits through efficient resource management. This can involve expanding businesses, managing supply chains effectively or discovering new ways of generating income.

Anno 1800, developed by Blue Byte and published by Ubisoft is an example of a game tagged as Economy on Steam. In Anno 1800, players oversee the development of a city during the industrial revolution. They must manage resources, trade with other nations, and balance the needs of their citizens while growing their economy.

Economy-driven games can provide engaging experiences where players are challenged to think strategically and make complex decisions. These games often offer a sense of progression as players witness their economies thriving and evolving throughout gameplay.
