London, 23rd October 2014 – Independent development studio verse publications and British publishing house Mastertronic are thrilled to announce point-and-click interactive short, The Shopkeeper, has launched on PC, Mac and Linux!

A Pandora’s Box of treasures awaits you in the delightful point-and-click adventure, The Shopkeeper, as an ordinary antiques shop becomes an enchanting world of curiosities. Each unique piece comes with its own hidden past - some quirky, some macabre. Unravel a fascinating storyline whilst trying to source the right gift for a fussy relative. Choose wisely and carefully as what you touch will arouse a number of unexpected consequences!

Co-written by director Tom De Roeck and veteran RPG designer James Wallis (recently announced as lead designer on the new edition of classic 1980s game Paranoia), The Shopkeeper is a short, interactive multi-path game, designed for several play-throughs. Described as a fusion between ‘the Twilight Zone, classic LucasArts adventures and the Antiques Roadshow’, the game centres on a captivating narrative wrapped in the veil of a graphic novel, beautifully drawn by comic artist James Brothwell.

Andy Payne, CEO, Mastertronic, says, “Can’t wait for people to discover the hidden delights of The Shopkeeper. Its quirky narrative and charming graphics will keep players on their toes as the story twists and turns to uncover more sinister endings. This game is the perfect addition to your Steam library.”

Tom De Roeck, co-writer, verse publications, comments, “Excited to see what the world thinks of my little storytelling game."

The Shopkeeper is available now on PC, Mac and Linux on Steam with 10% off during launch week!

Happy Gaming!

So far the game has me totally confused. A son-in-law is trying to get his mother-in-law to bail out his business. He's needing a gift to ,I assume, get her to change her mind. Very repetitive on choosing the right things to say and very slow paced. Hope there'll be someone out there attempting to play this also. duh
