The Game

In a fantasy world where adventurers take on epic quests to slay vicious beasts, you run an adventurer’s shoppe that sells swords, apparel and potions and where warriors and mages travel from miles around to stock up on important wares before an epic quest. Will they be venturing out to seek an ancient artefact and need a selection of tough wearing armour to withstand extreme punishment over time? Maybe they will be tasked with defeating the local dragon and need to stock up on mana potions to keep their spells charged. Your quest is to become the greatest merchant of all time.

While running your own shoppe, you will need to place shelves, tables and hat racks to hold your stock. You’ll also need to order supplies and manage the correct retail price to keep profits high but not so as to deter customers with ridiculous mark ups.

Customers will browse the store, bringing with them dirt and affecting the durability of your store items. This means that you’ll need to sweep up dirt with your broom and repair store items with your hammer.

Be on the lookout for thieves and barbarians who will enter your store to steal and destroy your shoppe’s inventory. You are of course armed with a fine sword and have learnt a dangerous lightning spell to mete out punishment to these fiends.

In Scenario mode, players will complete small objectives to sell a new item. Upon successful completion, that item will unlock in Free Play mode.
