The biggest Early Access update yet comes to Shoppe Keep 2!

Posted by on



Hello Keepers!

Welcome to Shoppe Keep 2's biggest Early Access update so far! Level 3 town progression and families have now been added. New items to use and sell, as well as countless tweaks and bug fixes have also been introduced.

Level 3 Town

You're now able to upgrade your quaint hometown once more, representing a boost in wealth due to your excellent Shoppe Keeping skills. Once you've hit the required tax threshold, you can now upgrade your town to level 3, changing the aesthetic of your home.



But the upgrade doesn't just impact visuals - upgrading the town to level 3 also unlocks some vital objects to use in your Shoppe, including mannequins, item displays, a weapon table and a pedestal for consumables.

Families

The powerful and influential Selutarr, Jotunn and Squalo families have arrived in Customerania! Once you upgrade to a level 3 town, each family brings brand new items for you to use and sell in your Shoppe, but there's a catch. Each of the families will keep a close eye on how much of their stock you sell, impacting your reputation with them.

An age-old rivalry between the three families means that they look unfavourably on you selling stock from their nemeses! Selling an item from a family will increase your reputation with them, while also decreasing your reputation with the other two families. Each family uses their power to either give you buffs or debuffs depending on your reputation with them.

Each family has their own little space in the open world of Customerania, so make sure to go and give each of them a visit!

Selutarr Family



If you have a positive reputation with the Selutarr family, they will reward you with...

  • Bonus: A portal which can be placed anywhere in the world. You can then travel between this portal and the management house. The portal lasts 24 hours.
  • Passive Bonus: All stock orders are delivered into the management house instantly.

And if you have a negative reputation they will punish you by...

  • Causing any stock orders to be delivered to a random crafter within the town, instead of landing in the management house.

Jotunn Family



If you have a positive reputation with the Jotunn family, they will reward you with...

  • Bonus: Special furniture which has 200% durability and anything sold from it will give you an additional 15% revenue.
  • Passive Bonus: An upgraded hammer, which will fix the durability of furniture with just one hit.

And if you have a negative reputation they will punish you by...

  • GIving stone boots to customers, meaning that they do more damage than usual when kicking your furniture

Squalo Family



If you have a positive reputation with the Squalo family, they will reward you with...

  • Bonus: A special consumable that grants you a flying squid which sticks by your side. The squid will feed on nearby items every five minutes, picking them up and adding them to your inventory.
  • Passive Bonus: Unpaid tax strikes against you are eliminated.

And if you have a negative reputation they will punish you by...

  • Teaching thieves to be more stealthy, walking instead of running, making them harder for you to spot. The Squallo family will also grant thieves lightning-proof underwear, meaning that they are resistant to the Thief Zapper attacks.

Reputation with each family will slowly move down to 0 again if none of their items are sold.

The visual differences between each town tier are pretty radical, hard to imagine you adding more than two more tiers without going over the top.
