Anyone else play this game? I know the currently have it on steam bundled with 4 other indie games for $5.

It's a Japanese RPG game where you also are am item shop owner. It's part management sim/ part dungeon crawler. I was just wondering a while ago why there was no game from the viewpoint of the item seller, and lo and behold, i stumbled across this.

Definitely an enjoyable game. Something a little different for sure.

Recettear was originally created in 2007 by a doujin game circle. I was honestly surprised how much publicity it got when Carpe Fulgur translated earlier this year. I was even more surprised when the company publicly stated that it made money.

But before Recettear was created, there was Gust's Atelier series. It began in the mid 90s as a life simulation/RPG fusion, and new games are still being made. See the series' TVTropes entry at http://tvtropes.org/...n/AtelierSeries , and a fansite called Puni Cove at http://punicove.ar-ciel.org/index.htm

If you want to experience one of the core Atelier games in English, start with Atelier Annie on DS (should cost about $20 now), or Atelier Rorona on PS3 (about $60). Or support the person who's trying to create a fan translation of Atelier Marie. Also, there's a trio of games with vaguely similar gameplay on PS2 called Atelier Iris 1-3... they emphasize RPG aspects, and don't have much in the way of simulation.

I liked Iris 3's character designs ^^

I just beat my first play-through with Charme and think I may try for 100% completion on this game.

I already had "Yet It Moves" and figured anything packaged with it would be fun.

Its an interesting puzzle platformer. I haven't beat it yet.

You can control the character like normal (left, right, jump) and well as you are able to turn the screen to make the walls the new floor and such. If you move too fast and land, you loose. There are a lot of checkpoints spaced [not] too far apart so it doesn't get you as frustrated as if you had to complete each level in one go, though there is a time trial mode I believe. I enjoy it more because it looks like a not book sketch world.

Sounds like something I would enjoy. Too bad I don't have the money right now for it.
