What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access will allow players to give feedback and influence the development as we move towards a full release. We have built a solid foundation of Winkeltje that is fun to play as is but we realise that it needs more love and attention to make it a shop keeping game that is unique and truly stands out. With this in mind we have our development pipeline set up to release updates and fixes on a regular basis while we work on more content and features.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We aim to have Winkeltje in Early Access for about a year or longer for as long as the resources to develop allow us.”

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

“The full version will have more content and features. We intend to add more objectives, furniture, items, decorations, walls, floors, events, and probably more.

We already support community translations but we intend to translate if there is a significant enough demand to the most popular languages in the full release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Winkeltje is already fully playable with dozens of furniture, items, structural assets, customers, events, seasons and three supported languages (Dutch, French, and Russian). Players part of the closed-alpha have reported enjoying the game for over 10 hours.”

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

“As the game grows in content, features, and entertainment value we may increase the price of the game.”

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

“We have an active Discord community where people provide feedback and suggestions. We have three branches in which we develop the game (default, testing, unstable) where players can try upcoming features or help with community translations.”

“Nov 2018 - The current Alpha build of Winkeltje features around two hours of gameplay and really impresses with its intuitive UI and fast paced shop management gameplay.”
Alpha Beta Gamer

“June 2019 - Winkeltje perfectly distills the shop keeper experience down into a simple but challenging experience. Most importantly, I found it incredibly enjoyable.”

About This Game

Run your own old-world fantasy store in Winkeltje: The Little Shop! Build, decorate, craft, sell, and become the master of your own shop in this timeless management game.


As the shopkeeper of your very own store, you are in charge of buying, selling, keeping stock of your inventory, and making a profit. Items can be bought from traders or delivered at a fee.

  • Buy low, sell high, and make sure to satisfy your customers’ demands.
  • A large variety of items: from bulk goods and resources to vegetables and other food, clothes, tools, and even alchemical elixirs!
  • Play at your own pace and open your store when you feel ready for a day of trading.


Bring out your interior designing skills by freely placing furniture and displays.
Decorate your shop well to attract even more customers.

  • Tons of different furniture options, from tables and display shelves to counters and storage pallets and crafting stations.
  • Expertly place decorations to impress your customers and sell more!
  • Fine-tuned controls allow you to arrange the furniture with the greatest ease.


Expand your shop when you have amassed enough wealth. Be your own architect when building your fantasy store.

  • Decide the shop’s floor plan and where to place doors, windows, or archways.
  • Increase the size of your store and make it more appealing, having all the items on sale.
  • Combine different wall and floor tiles to your heart’s desire.


Gather resources and decide which items to craft for the best profit margins.

  • Craft items at dedicated crafting stations, from tailor’s desk and forges to alchemy tables.
  • Gain experience to craft higher quality items (and sell them for more!).


Expand the store’s food stocks and grow delicious artichokes, cauliflowers, potatoes and other crops from your own vegetable garden.

  • Buy seeds, plant them, give them plenty of water (and love). Harvest the crops to sell in your store.
  • Be careful about your home-grown produce. If they aren’t cared for, they might wither and die.


Be prepared for customers’ needs to change with each new season. Random events can affect the supply and demand of goods and might give you an extra challenge (or a tidy profit if you play your cards right).
