What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We need your feedback and support to help bring Shopkeeper Simulator VR to the next level. We want to make this game the best it can be. There are lots of directions this game can take and we want to go in the right direction by incorporating the community in that decision process.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to leave the game in early access until July 2018. That depends on the amount of feedback we get. After that point, a decision about the future plans is made according to the community’s reception of the game and the game’s state.”

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

“We will concentrate on whatever the community’s feedback process will produce. We will take any feedback into consideration but our ideas as of today would have a similar "complexity" such as:

  • Implement a simple economy system which influences demand and offer and the way customers respond to your price point
  • Adding game progression features: Unlocking more groceries that become available later, customers having increasing demands for different groceries
  • Adding shop customization features: Buying your own interior (without complex placing mechanics)
  • Adding events like robbery, earthquakes, fire etc.

Again, these are just some suggestions in our minds. The community feedback will be a crucial factor. Updates to the game happen typically once or twice a week. See the development blog below to get an idea. Updates typically feature new features, new content, bug fixes, performance optimizations, and general gameplay enhancements & improvements.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • Currently there are 6 levels that you can play sequentially.
  • Customers will enter your shop and demand a list of 3 to 5 items from your store. Each customer has a timer which depends on the selected difficulty.
  • You can grab the items with your hands and can put them into the shopping bag.
  • You can use a laptop to reorder groceries. Every item that were available from the beginning is listed here. Items have a price so you have to own the money to purchase them.
  • There are 10 different grocery items available which can be picked up, thrown etc.
  • A fridge which can be opened and closed by grabbing the handle. The fridge cools certain groceries which will decay if not cooled.
  • You can open and close the cash register.
  • The game contains a giant mode, which scales the player to a big person and lets the environment appear smaller than normal.
  • A text tutorial is available at the start of a new game

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

“We may gradually raise the price as we add more content and features.”

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

“We hope that during early access players will write about bugs or shortcomings here in the forum. We will try to solve all the problems as fast as possible.

In the past, we released a new version of the game every week. We will respond to comments and suggestions within 24 hours.”
