What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“MSS is still in Alpha, and Early Access is perfect to get some feedback, test new features and mechanics to improve the game and make it fun and enjoyable.

If you want to support MSS during Early Access, we would love to have you. Otherwise, we recommend to wait a more stable and improved build.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It is hard to estimate but I can roughly expect that MSS will be almost ready within 8-14 months. You can track the development of the game via TWITTER.”

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

“The full version of MSS will contain the following features:
  • Keep your stores afloat against many hazards: from climatic disasters and different diseases like a plague to a bad decision of your king that will unleash a war.
  • Explore the world with unique characters, events, buildings, and secrets.
  • Unravel the mysteries of the kingdom while looking for unusual and exotic objects.
  • Equip your employees to perform different functions.
  • Shape your houses with deformation tools and features.
  • During the course of the game, new events will appear that will change the way you play: a global illness or a neighboring war.
  • Unlock new skills and advantages by praying in the church, including the ability to create new objects, be better at haggling prices and the ability to manage the kingdom at your whim with clear consequences.
  • Visit the seer to reveal future events and hire their services to change them.
  • Hire warriors in taverns, choose the ones you like the most and send them to great adventures.
  • Have fun with your friends in an online experience that promotes communication and cooperation to succeed in the kingdom as merchants.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“MSS changing rapidly with new features and content. What you can expect:
  • Manage your own stores, from ordering objects to setting prices.
  • The world of MSS reacts to your decisions, including prices, support for the crown and the church and the reputation of your stores.
  • Combine components and objects to create higher-value stock and exchange or sell them
  • Modify and order your employees to work one way or another depending on your style of play.
  • Learn different skills from different fields such as: fishing, farming, combat and more.
  • Depending on the king or queen that governs, there will be laws that will suit you more or less depending on your financial strategy.
  • You can go from house to house fulfilling your previously accepted orders to get money or unique items.
  • Build and manage your medieval stores and influence the economy of the kingdom.
  • Customize the look of your character, the type of pet you prefer.

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

“MSS launched at a low price considering how early in development the game was. As the game matures and its content grows the price of the game will be reviewed.”

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

“Players’ feedback is the best way to improve the game in the right direction, and I am going to carefully track community ideas and thoughts with every new update. Players can also follow MSS in socials to track the game developing:

IMPORTANT UPDATE + SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT



Hello everyone! As you have seen during these days, I have not updated the game. This is due to several things:
  • Right now I'm programming internal systems which I can not stop halfway to upload an update every Friday, because it would give error.
  • I had some vacations in my town since there were festivities and I haven't had real vacations since years.
  • Also, I am working on upgrading and customizing the house interior, with cool upgrades and furniture blueprints to unlock.
During this time, I have been thinking several things such as uploading an update every 2 weeks instead of 1. It does not give me physical time to program a complex system in a week without errors and also have some life apart from doing this project.

As you know, I am working alone on this big project and it will take me some time to complete it. That's why in my free time, I'm always doing other small projects to distract myself from this game, because being 24/7 just burns me.

I'm going to make a special announcement. Some time ago, when I was having a hard time in my life, I made a little relaxing game to forget myself and think more clearly. As I liked it so much, I decided to share it with the community for free. It's called Himno.



It will be released in a month or so totally free.

I think I have nothing left to explain/say. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to leave a comment or start a discussion. There will be an update with new content next week.

Have a nice weekend and as always, thanks for supporting me :steamhappy:

David.

FRIDAY BUILD 13



Hello! During these 2 weeks, I had some troubles in home and couldn't stay too much on the pc. In this time, I focused on some new usable items for farm plots, and several bugs fixes.

Let's see what this build contains:
    NEW CONTENT
  • Now you can buy farm plots from the farmer too. More options in the future.
  • 2 New usable items to use in farming plots.
  • In total 4 items more.

    BUG FIXES
  • Creating farm items will progress correctly now.
  • An incredible optimization in the animals that go around the world, now no longer generate remains when moving which after a few hours of play, could be
    affected the performance and later on crashing (Almost 2 weeks of work to discover this bug and fix it LOL).

Have a nice weekend and as always, thanks for supporting me :steamhappy:

About This Game

Medieval Shopkeeper Simulator is a medieval management, exploration and adventure game currently under development by Breakfast Studio.



Create, manage and expand your merchant empire, explore the borders of the world and properly manage your stores to become the most important trader in the kingdom.

Manage your stores, organize your workers, deliver orders, exchange and create unique items, unlock new skills and advantages, hire warriors for adventures, explore the world, resist global events like a plague or a war, plan your financial strategy supporting or confronting the crown and the church, alter the economy of the kingdom and its laws and face consequences of your decisions.

Depending on the king or queen that governs, there will be laws that will suit you more or less depending on your way of playing. The world of MSS reacts to every decision and even prices in stores, punishing mistakes with your reputation. Be careful and make wise decisions, visit the seer to reveal future events and prepare yourself to them.


Now that we move to the alpha stage, you can expect the following content in the coming months:

MORE REAL LAWS
For now there are only a few types of laws such as the prohibition of the sale of some objects. In the future, each king/queen will be a unique event that will have a lot of weight in the balance of the game and your way of playing. (Second quarter of 2018).

CUSTOMIZATION OF HOUSES
You can combine different models acquired in the architect to create your dream house. (First quarter of 2018).

STORAGE REFACTORING
The management of objects will become a totally new and improved game mechanic: players can organize their stock of objects as they wish. Do you need more space to store objects? Buy and improve an empty warehouse in the city. (First quarter of 2018).

KINGDOM 2.0
A new generation system by a procedure that will improve performance and allow you to explore in each game a new, different kingdom. These new realms will contain more diverse buildings, specific events, more characters and much more. (Second quarter of 2018).

CLIMATE AND DANGERS
A totally new system that challenges players during the gaming experience. Confront the environmental effects by preventing them or fighting with different global diseases and neighboring wars. (First quarter of 2018).

KNOWN ISSUES:
There are some problems you might experience in the Alpha version of the game:
  • bugs
  • freezing
  • loss of saved games


If the essential game mechanics is attractive and you want to give your support to Medieval Shopkeeper Simulator while you are in early access, we would love to have you. Otherwise, we recommend waiting until MSS exceeds the alpha stage when the game is more stable, and the game mechanics are more developed. I am committed to converting Medieval Shopkeeper Simulator into the best possible game, and your help during this early phase of development is crucial for us to achieve our goal.

If it intrigues you to know where we will take Medieval Shopkeeper Simulator, consult our roadmap and the development vlogs that I publish several times per month.
