What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This game is Early Access because I want to see what aspects the players like in the game and work more on those while developing for the full release. Also I wanted to share it with everyone as soon as possible so others can enjoy it as much as I do, and come along the developing journey with me. I supported many Early Access games and always loved that I had a better connection with them because I was there from the start, and even shaped how the final product turned out! I have more features and visuals planned to implement in the game, so I wouldn't call it finished just yet!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It depends on how involved the community gets with ideas, I would like to make it as fun as possible, and would love to listen to some feedbacks! If I only count the features already planned ahead, it would take about a year to finish if everything goes to plan!”

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

“I have some more gameplay mechanics planned like fragile and spoiling products that you have to pay extra attention to, and brand new abilities!
Also I came up with more shop types, that rely on these mechanics as well!
I would love to make everything look better, with more variety in customers, visual effects, and overall better layout! The sound design needs some improvements too!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In the current version you can go many rounds exploring randomly generated iterations of the same shopping center. Find customers holding their shopping lists and help them buy these items scattered around the stores. There is also an AI character that delivers products to these customers as well, so you might cross paths and get some headaches! Bring anything you can remember to the correct person and if you manage to deliver all products to every customer you will see your and the bot's score printed out. Each round the stores swap their places, their stock refreshes, and the shopping lists are randomly generated following these changes. There are 3 types of stores implemented at the moment, a supermarket, a bakery and a butchery. Every item is ready to be picked up from the shelves, but if you can't find a prepared product, then feel free to turn on the Oven or the Slicing Machine and make it yourself!”

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

“I don't plan on increasing the price once it's fully released!”

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

“I'm all for feedbacks! As a solo developer I don't want to prioritize my own gameplay style, I have been in my own bubble for too long! I would love to hear what other people enjoy about the game, and what they think is missing! Then improve it accordingly!

About This Game

We Are Open is a game about the joys of shopping. Who doesn't love running around a mall looking for groceries, just to forget what they were looking for in the first place? Brace yourself, because there are many customers waiting to get to the bottom of their shopping lists! Give them a hand, will you?

But wait! Who is that other fellow doing YOUR job? It's Shop-O-Tron the AI that swoops all the credit before you can hand in your goods you just found with hard work. Pick up the pace and beat his score before the round ends!

In the current state of the game you can find customers walking around a mall, with shopping lists they are willing to share with you. Your job is to find these items scattered around the stores and bring anything you can remember back to them. If you manage to correctly deliver all products to every customer the round ends with your and the bot's score printed out. Can you beat the current high score of your Leaderboard? There is only one map at the moment, but some alterations are made between rounds!

There are many groceries to look for, more than you will remember that's for sure! Explore bakeries, butcheries and supermarkets, all with colourful stocks that change every time you start a round! You might remember you went for milk, but wait! Was it Oat Milk or Goat Milk? Let's just run back and check! Every item is ready to be picked up from the shelves, but if you can't find a prepared product, then feel free to turn on the Oven or the Slicing Machine and make it yourself!

Find Power Ups scattered around the map and use wide range of abilities to have a chance to beat your AI rival! Don't worry if you can't find any though! Your trusty robotic arm can extend and shoot its hand, and it's always by your side!

To make every round even more difficult, the shops don't stay in their places either! Explore a new layout every time, with randomly spawned shops!

Have a nice time shopping, because now We Are Open!
