About

If you haven’t played Shoppe Keep yet, why not join nearly 100,000 gamers who are already enjoying this unique business management game, and create your own fantasy retail consortium?

Shoppe Keep challenges you to shrewdly set the price of each item and watch the money roll in – but if your stock is too expensive, you will find your supplies shrinking as stealing increases! Stop Thieves quickly, with a swing of your sword or a zap of a lightning spell! (Or maybe both, if you’re really bloodthirsty.) Price your wares competitively and great adventurers will travel from miles away to your one-stop shop to spend their gold – the gold that they probably found conveniently placed on a cave floor! Shoppe Keep delivers deep gameplay mechanics in a memorable, tongue-in-cheek world.


Gone are the days of testing the theoretical water – we’re now a fully-fledged, fully-opened store! Despite reaching full release, developer Strangefire will continue with our planned seasonal updates – after all, we all know that Shoppe Keep is the true meaning of the holidays - but the especially fantastic news is about the brand new Inn!

This building has been blocked off for some time, and many have speculated that it will be an Inn – well, the sneaky players were right! The Inn is best used at lower levels and a lower gold count. For a small amount of kPoints, you are able to unlock the Inn with a single table for four guests.

An inn with a single table? What complete rubbish! Additional tables can be purchased by speaking with the innkeeper, as well as additional upgrades that will help your Inn deliver serious coin. Adventurers traveling through town might want to visit the Inn and enjoy some food and ale – if they haven’t found some randomly laying around on their travels already. We all know that fantasy worlds cater for their heroes – but with Shoppe Keep, you’ll be able to make sure that catering doesn’t equal ‘potato in a toilet’!


Various members of four completely original and never before seen character classes will visit your store, including hardened warriors, magical mages, sneaky rogues and wise druids. (As you can tell, we’re taking this description text VERY seriously!) Each of these character types will seek to purchase items relating to their unique skill set - a warrior will be hard-pressed to take a flimsy magical robe into close quarters’ battle, for instance! Mages, however, will be perfectly happy with a wooden stick. It’s ‘magical’, or something ridiculous those absurd mages believe. Will you be able to accommodate for all four classes of customers?


You have a completely unreasonable clientele to add pressure to your role as a Shoppe Keeper. After a day of heroism, beating up goblins and even battling the great ol’ Dragonclaw, your customers can be just a little short-fused. This means your displays can be spoilt and your tables may be damaged by angry customers! The renegade ‘heroes’ are not too worried about bringing in dirt from the street either!

However, help is at hand! As the owner of the store you’ll be armed with various exciting tools for combating these issues. The mighty wooden broomstick will sweep away dirt brought in from your customers, and the great hammer will repair furniture damaged by these ‘extraordinary’ visitors. A few sweeps and a couple of swings means that your shop will be in tip-top shape. Grow your business, and you can employ an army of ‘Helper Bots’ to take care of this for you – the cutting edge in imaginary technology that totally exists.


Set your prices too high and your customers may think twice about investing their hard won (or stolen) gold in your shop. They’ll take the plunge and attempt to steal stock right under your nose! With no CCTV available in ye olde world of Shoppe Keep, you have to rely on your combat skill! A sharp swing of the sword or the zap of a magic spell can make quick work of these pesky Thieves. But be cautious not to hit any innocent bystanders or you’ll suffer a monetary penalty, as well as a life riddled with guilt! Not to mention the hideous moral conundrum of whether or not to tell your family or- look, just don’t kill innocent people.

And let’s not forget the ferocious Barbarians! They live on the outskirts of the city, looming like an ancient race of organic-synthetic hybrids that invade the gal- wait, wrong game.

Regularly invading the town, Barbarians will cause as much damage and destruction as possible! They will even fight you directly if you try to stop them. Eliminate a few dozen Barbarians and they’ll invite a much… larger friend to come and visit you. But what will you do with all the bodies? Unless you wish to display the corpses as examples to your customers, you monster, you’ll need to use either the broomstick or the grinder.


It’s tough running a shop (especially one that may or may not be the venue of a murder-fest); there are not enough hours in the day to go out and procure new items for yourself. Thankfully, you can employ a Champion, unlocked via the skill tree. Select a class, equip the Champion with your finest armour and weapons, and send them out to bring home rare new wares. Despite that awful half-rhyme, some of these items can be sold, some are junk and others can be crafted into more powerful gear.

Your Champion will need to gain experience, just like the fantasy heroes you’re familiar with. During their first outing, they may fall in battle (and regret not saving more recently!), and whilst they will not return with any new goods, the experience will have taught them valuable skills that will improve their chances next time.


‘Helper Bots’ are your robotic staff team. The MK III charts the latest iteration of this tech, increasing the artificial intelligence of this mechanical chap. We all knew that true AI technology would be created before CCTV – it was inevitable.

The ‘Helper Bot’ has three duties; zapping Thieves who attempt to steal from your shop, picking up items that customers may have thrown to the floor, and restocking items back on the shelves. You can purchase several ‘Helper Bots’ to, well, help run your shop.

Shoppe Keep reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Mhm, it's really hard to tell if I can recommend the Game or not. On the one Hand, it is Fun to run your own Shop, to see what you need in terms of Supplies that Customers want, and also to expand the Shop. On the other Hand, you quickly fall into the same Trot. You look, you order, and every now and then you turn on a Passerby By hand still ' n Sword or something else. In addition, there are technical Details. As seen in the Pictures, the Graphics really aren't the Best now, and to me the Characters in particular look rather ugly. But this becomes a mere Side Issue as soon as you have to deal with the unfathomably horrible control. There is no real Inventory, every single Item you have to scroll through with the Mouse wheel. This may still be okay at First, but once you expand your Offer and have more Items in your Pocket, the worse and harder it becomes to find the item you want. The way Finding Of Customers doesn't get any better either. Once the Store gets a bit fuller, these Customers may not find Items even though they are on display. You also have to pay attention to what the Customers are doing. They bring Dirt to the Store, devastate it by simply picking up and dropping items (even then, Customers no longer recognise That as a Commodity and leave again), and of course steal them. They are run after them and kill them by Sword or lightning. This may be funny At The beginning, but it quickly evolves into Continuous Loop. Placing the Items Is also quite awkward. It is Understandable that you can only place large Objects on designated stands and Tables, But unfortunately the Detection Sometimes does not work properly, and so it is made difficult to put Things on the back Rows of the Tables, because usually only the row Before that, it is "targeted." (Large Tables have Room for 2 large Items such as Sword and Shield, plus 9 small Things like Potions, split into 3x3 Rows.) (Little Tip: Brouches the Space bar very quickly many Times in a row to unlock jumping and an Achievement, which makes everything a lot easier.) Once you have your Robots, you hardly have to do anything yourself unless their AI sets out and you have to dream behind them. You set a Robot to replenish the Shelves, but that messes it all up because they don't set you up to what belongs where. Another sells, yet one swipes, and the last one should take care of Thieves, and you are almost unemployed until they order new Items. Quests complete her to GET to KP Points, which she then invests in new Merchandise or Benefits for the Store. Either you want Customers to pay a small Price as Admission, or Druids and Magicians to visit your Shop, which And more will be unlocked with the Dots. If you do a lot of Questes, it can also be done relatively quickly, so you also have nothing big to do just as quickly. Little Tip here: Searches the Bins for Items, which sometimes saves good Gold. I think I have to go for the Thumbs down here. This is also Due to the constant Feeling of being in an Early Access Version. Unfortunately, nothing will come here either, as the second Part is already in The works. Too bad, because I really Enjoyed the first 4 Hours, but it quickly subsided afterwards. P.S.: If you still find Spelling Mistakes, you can see them as a Gift. Transmitted with Love < 3
