Shoppe Keep 2 is an open world, first-person, multiplayer-focused merchant simulator, and is inspired by the shopkeepers that we know and love from classic RPGs and MMOs. While adventurers are out slaying dangerous beasts, and selling an alarming amount of stolen plates, cheese and bread, the merchant is keeping their shelves stocked. It’s easy to imagine an ordinary shopkeeper’s duties, but then again... Why settle for the ordinary?In Shoppe Keep 2, you choose how you want to conduct business. Buy your stock from several suppliers around town, or take on lucrative and dangerous missions to secure high class stock that fetch higher profits. Close your Shoppe and explore the town, the forest, and maybe even a cave or two - and battle dangerous enemies in search for sweet loot! Ahem, stock. Stock.
