Step into the world of art and intrigue with the 1987 DOS game, Vermeer. This unique strategy game offers players a taste of the art world, where they hunt for valuable paintings by the legendary Johannes Vermeer and others. Set in the early 20th century, the game blends elements of art, history, and economics, providing a rich and educational gaming experience. The background of the game takes us to the 1920s, when a collection of rare paintings is stolen from a private collection. Their owner, Walter von Grünschild, sends his nephews to the world's auction houses to buy back his paintings. However, in order to get money for all the paintings, everyone is trying to earn as many of them as possible for themselves. Therefore, they individually build plantations for growing coffee, tea or tobacco and sell the products on world markets. You can also bet on horse racing or trade on the stock and foreign exchange markets, which are options with a greater degree of risk, but also possible profit. The game Vermeer belongs to the classics of German business and economic simulations and became a kind of template for a whole series of games of the same genre, which were developed mainly in Germany by various development companies in the following years. The game came from the pen of Ralf Glau and his studio Ariolasoft in 1987 on Atari and Commodore and a year later on DOS and Amiga systems.
