Description

Have you ever thought about building up your own empire, without the risk of ending up sleeping under a bridge? Become the owner of a pawn shop and haggle like your life depends on it! Start small, grow big!

History

Abyte Entertainment is an indie game studio founded by Giulio Marra and Federico Palombini, two Italian developers with more than 10 years of experience in business projects, from web to e-commerce platforms, and almost 30 years as gamers.

Everything began in 2006, the very first concept of an haggling engine came out as a university paper showing that negotiation can be engaging also in videogames. It was good at that time but not something that could be really called “a game”. The indie game scene was not that good at that moment and the best and most logical thing to do for them was to follow other choices regarding their first job. It was a safer option but you can’t ignore your true passion forever.

In 2016, after 10 years of professional and challenging IT projects in major companies (while doing personal side jobs developing basic prototypes and mini games), they decided that they wanted to fully commit to the path of developing a videogame. That old concept came back together with a modern game design heavily inspired by the great indie game “Papers, Please” and a game setting that recalls many TV shows about pawn shops, auctions and negotiation in general. They quit their jobs and embraced the mission of making a real videogame, something to put in all what they’ve learnt so far as developers and gamers!

That's how Dealer's Life was born, a game where procedural generation meets behavioural simulation which means that you never know what's coming next!

And now everything is going to be even better with Dealer's Life 2: from amazing new graphics to dozens of new features.
