Stardock has a new DLC pack out for Offworld Trading Company. Called the Conspicuous Consumption pack (and costing $2.99 on Steam) this cosmetic addition allows you to win in style with some retro affects for your various structures. Your Offworld Market craft can look like a retro style rocket or even a red-white-and-blue Bomb Pop, although I'm not sure how those don't melt on re-entry. If your patent lab seems a touch drab, why not turn it into a Rubik's Cube? Check out the trailer below to see how these skins looks, and hit the break for a full press release and purchase link.

Offworld Trading Company Releases new Conspicuous Consumption DLC

Change the look of the game's advanced buildings with "fun time"
or "retro" versions

Plymouth, MI. October 9, 2017 - Today, Stardock and Mohawk Games released the Conspicuous Consumption DLC, a prestige pack of cosmetic upgrades for select buildings. Players can add "flare" to their game with the custom art, animations, and audio for each version.

"The art in Offworld has always been something we've taken pride in," said lead designer Soren Johnson. "We wanted to release a pack of some alternate buildings that will let players personalize their games and give them something extra to smile about when they play."

Conspicuous Consumption provides new versions for each of the advanced buildings that the player can enable or disable through the options menu.

The buildings with new versions in this DLC include:


Hacker Array: Enjoy a "Las Vegas" feel with a roulette wheel or embrace the retro style with an old radio tower.


Offworld Market: Send your goods offworld in a giant popsicle or a sleek retro rocket.


Optimization Center: Burst some bubbles with a bubble machine or conduct some electricity with a massive Tesla coil.


Patent Lab: Research patents inside a giant Rubik's cube or a sci-fi robot head.


Pleasure Dome: Dance off inside a fun time disco ball or skip the dancing in a neon diner.

The Conspicuous Consumption DLC is $2.99 and is available on Steam or through Stardock. For more details, and to learn how to access the building skins, visit the forums.
