About Beta Updates
Note that playing on Beta branch accesses new features but is potentially less stable than main

Early access changes can be tried on the Beta (x86_64) branch and will be moved to Main branch after sufficient testing is completed. Thanks!

(Beta) Update 1.31.1 - Profitability Gradient

The x86_64 branch has a new feature, the profitability gradient, once requested in the forums. To activate it, click the gear on the bottom right, go to options and then check the "Guides On/Off". If it's on, a new "Refresh Guides" button will show up on the lower left, so that you can update the guides if you make changes to your shop

A yellowish gradient should show up on your shop if your discount is pretty high (maybe around 150% of its original price) - if it's green it means it's REALLY high, like over 250% of its base price.

To turn it off, swtich the Guides Off. It will also by default go away during Sell Phase. The feature will be on the beta branch for a few days for testing and will be rolled out to main afterwards. Feel free to try it out, and report any issues you might encounter. Save files shouldn't be affected, but you can make a copy of your SaveData in case.

Missed Mini-things

Some stuff that got added that weren't announced (info for older players - for newer players, it won't be very interesting since it was part of the game already, lol)

A few new hairstyles (available from the start) and some new craftable items that should be available after the Credits/Chapter 3.

Other Issues

Incidentally, I've seen a few people playing the game and the text is hard to read/resolution is blurry. In the same options tab, try setting a non-fullscreen resolution and set it back to fullscreen. That should fix the blurriness.

If you also get the "Error Initializing" bug at start up, or any other crash issues let me know and I may need an output log and/or your SaveData folder (or Save File & folder number) to fix the issue quickly. Thanks so much!

About This Game

Be a Pixel Shopkeeper! Collect items using inventory management puzzle mechanics. Sell your wares, decorate your shop, craft new products, and expand! Train to beat tougher dungeons, unlock new classes and decor, and furnish your shop smartly to maximize profits! Choose from two levels of difficulty to pay off your loan, or play in Sandbox mode with no obligations.

- Different dungeons, enemies, and unlockable worlds: puzzle style is not always the same
- Variety of bags you can obtain that give special effects such as delivering directly to inventory and multiplying an item you collect!
- Purchase different kinds of tables, shelves, and decorations that affect different stats such as gold bonuses and customer choices
- Unlockable character classes that have different preferences and gifts that you can receive
- Crafting! Make your own items that customers will pay a premium for, or use them yourself to boost your stats
- Expand your shop to house more wares and remodel it with decorations to go for a certain look and add boosts
- Plant your own herbs (among other things) to use in battle or to sell, with chance of getting rarer seeds
- Get far enough to buy a second shop and hire managers to work for you

(Please Read ^^)
- Battle gameplay is puzzle-style, fitting items into grids with special effects - check out videos to learn more and see it in action!
- In this game you will be clicking quite a bit. There are in-game items that alleviate that, but fair warning in the beginning!
- As a simulation game it might start out slow as you build yourself up, so if you are bored easily, this might be important
- The default Challenge mode could be frustrating if you are not into the min-maxing of the genre. I recommend Sandbox or "Chill Mode" to start
- If you want an in-depth and real-time look at gameplay, check out Let's Play videos to see if it's your kind of game

Thanks so much for the interest and I hope you enjoy the game!
