After you wash ashore on an island divided into 5 shopping districts, an elderly shop owner and a long-forgotten android rescue you, allow you to live with them in their neglected shopping district, and hire you to work for them as a shopkeeper. You are given the chance to leave your past behind, build a new life, and improve your new home. Combating frequent debt payments and attacks from rival shopping districts, you hold the fragile fate of your new community in your hands. What are you willing to do to make your new neighborhood the #1 shopping district?
Play with up to 4 friends or play solo. Hire artificially intelligent employees to help you run your business. Split up tasks, work together, or do it all on your own.
Fully control your shopkeeping experience. What kind of business will you build from the ground up? How will you set your prices? Will you run a hardware store, a pawn shop, a convenience store, a clothing boutique, a flower shop, a restaurant, or a mix of everything? Design, build, expand, decorate, and furnish your store as you please, and use your earnings to renovate and restore your community.
Work hard to make your shopping district the most desired community. To move up the leaderboard, earn favorable public opinion by selling high-quality goods, having sufficient inventory supply, providing prompt service, improving infrastructure, clearing fallen trees, cleaning up trash, restoring condemned buildings, planting greenery, and more.
Artificially intelligent denizens of your world come alive. NPCs have their own individual schedules and homes. Hire AI employees. Loyal customers may become regular patrons. Rival shopkeepers are forced to close their own businesses when injured. Rangers patrol and fight crime on the streets of their own districts while rival districts battle in open plains vying for more land and control in this open-world system.
If you can pick it up, then you can sell it. From stinky trash bags to full-body androids, there is a market for everything. Whether your inventory is purchased at wholesale prices, foraged for, crafted, found, dumpster-dived, stolen, or earned, there is always someone willing to buy what you are selling—at the right price.
If you can pick it up, then you can use it as a weapon. Bring a couch to a knife fight. Bring a telephone pole to a gunfight. Use a clothes hanger to rip the clothes off your enemy’s back (to sell in your shop later). Electrocute nearby enemies with an air-conditioning unit. Hunt for unique legendary weapons that change the way you play.
Choose your own experience. Where will the goods you sell come from? Will you forage, farm, fish, or dumpster dive? Will you buy from wholesalers? Will you dungeon crawl? Will you live a life of crime and steal from your neighbors? Will you do a little bit of everything?
