What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are used to developing our games while listening to our players’ feedback. Our first game was Dealer’s Life. Its development cycle spanned approximately 4 years following a method that was very similar to Steam Early Access, using tools such as a Public Roadmap to gather feedback from our players.

Dealer’s Life 2 is its direct successor and since we loved to work along with our players we’re not going to change our approach to the development, thus Steam Early Access seems to be the best solution.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We will stay in Early Access until we feel the game is finished and polished. This process will probably go through all the first half of 2021.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Here’s a quick list of our planned improvements:
  • new items, for a total of at least 800 different items that will be used to generate an infinite amount of variations. You’ll be able to browse them in the new Item Catalogue feature
  • new customer appearances with new poses, new faces, hairs and clothes that will make each new customer a unique blend of surprise and wonder
  • holiday themed content: dedicated special characters and possibly quests, dedicated shops graphics, dedicated items and customer appearances
  • new visual effects and animations
  • new encounters and special characters, new stories, difficult decisions to make and challenging tasks to complete
  • improvements on the negotiation engine to reproduce each possible behaviour or trait of a real customer
  • game difficulty levels, in order to let everyone play Dealer’s Life 2 with the preferred amount of challenge
  • new types of auction
  • new ways to make money (and get loans) through the bank
  • new unlockable characters to play with unique powerful avatars
  • the great Trophy Hall, a new main menu section in which you can check the best items you’ve found while playing
  • a ton of achievements and leaderboards
... And we are sure we are forgetting something here.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All core features are included and stable. From here on it’s just a matter of adding more and improving upon what we have through the help of our community.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes. We will gradually increase the game’s price along with the effort and content we put into it.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We‘ve always loved to hear our players' feedback, a lot of great ideas came out in this way during the development of our first game and we hope the same will happen with Dealer’s Life 2.
We’re a small two-man team but we always do our best to hear everyone, everywhere. Players can find us here on Steam, Discord, Twitter, Facebook and Abyte Entertainment homepage.
We also have a Public Roadmap in which we track current and planned developments, new releases and players’ feedback. In addition to this, we will often release updated Beta versions of the game that can be played to try new content and features before they get publicly released.”

About This Game

Have you ever thought about building up your own empire, without the risk of ending up sleeping under a bridge? Become the owner of a pawn shop and haggle like your life depends on it!

Start small, grow big!

Begin your journey in a rundown shack and build up your business day by day by negotiating with customers, hiring employees and partaking in auctions.

But be careful! Scammers will try to take advantage of you with counterfeit items and If someone ever wants to sell you a questionable “insurance” better choose your next words wisely...

Each customer behaves differently during negotiations according to their unique psychological traits. It’s up to you to understand who you have in front of you, how to treat them and how to seal the deal!

Use all your negotiation, psychology and management skills to create your pawn empire!

Dealer’s Life 2 Main Features

  • The most technically advanced negotiation engine you’ve ever seen
  • A myriad of items to buy and sell with fake and counterfeit items to avoid (or exploit!)
  • Infinite customers to haggle with, each with their own personality and appearance
  • Hire employees to help you with your job: search for the best experts, restorers, profilers, analysts, clerks and many others.

  • Lots of humour and quotes from cult movies and videogames
