Recettear: An Item Shop Tale

Time for a Recettear thread, cause lets face it this game is fucking awesome. Progress reports, thoughts etc etc.

To start off, my progress. I have gotten very little playtime in due to major project but being able to load my demo save helped get a bit further along.

Day 30, Just made 200,000 pix payment successfully. Now low on funds and stock, not really sure I will make the 500K payment. Will be focusing on adventuring and fusion to try and up my balance.

Merchant Level 12.

Adventurer Status:
Louie, Level 16
Charme, Level 8 (have not gone into a dungeon with her yet)
Caillou, Level 10 (only just unlocked)
Nagi, frequenting shop but have not got her card yet.
Elan, just met in the pub.
Tielle, not seen yet.

I am unsure if Arma is an adventurer but damn she is awesome, frequents the shop.

Check my post in indie games for more details about it. And you are interested cause it is fantastic, the demo is widely available, I highly suggest giving it a go.

Just got Nagi's card and failed miserably with the god damn wizard who is the squishiest thing in existence bah. Had to reload my save due to wasting time (luckily got Nagi the second time round not the first).

I can't get past the 80,000pix payment ;_;

But I persevere... maybe I will get there eventually >_>

Cleared it this morning with Merchant Level 17, am about to continue in freeplay mode.

Currently, my unlocked adventurers are:
  • Louie, level 14 - gave me his True Card upon clear
  • Charme, level 12
  • Elan, level dunno (he gave me his card on the final payment day)

Thanks to carefully hedging myself against market trends, I was able to make the final payment without too much sweat. From the looks of things, there's still heaps of content to discover. :D

EDIT: Also, I hate Euria. I don't care about underselling chocolate bars to the little girls, but Euria busting in and demanding 10k for a picnic basket? No. Combo broken. :(

I've had some really weird present ideas come in, along with the strange heirloom candy and chocolate.

Did not make my 500K payment last night and ended up on loop 2. Loop 2 is probably a good idea if you are really struggling to make the payment but as far as I'm concerned I simply can not afford to lose all my unlocked adventurers, particularly Caillou and Nagi. Out of all the eyebats I have killed I only ever got one bat wing and Nagi appears to be entirely random, I was lucky to get her.

Now to trudge back and try again, I was very unlucky last time with pretty much all my stock decreasing (and I had a bit of everything) and retardedly bad dungeon runs. Why the hell is the third dungeon dropping 300pix charms? I could make more money selling a single popular charm than I could on an entire run of the dungeon with shit like that dropping and considering all the healing items you need to use.. I think the game might hate me.

why is your store only filled with old men?
Tetris (as an allegory to the Soviet people)- everyone is an unindividualistic block that must be made to fit together in Soviet conformity, and sometimes whole lines of people are made to disappear without any explanation
