Top Critic Average
At the end of the day, Shoppe Keep 2 lacks any sort of depth. Its generic setting and art style, which is matched by the boring combat, make adventuring a total bore.
If you put a good amount of time, effort, and have an amazing eye sight, then you might be able to get some good results from the game. It does have an unfinished vibe and there are a few bugs that need a lot of fixing so hopefully the developers will be able to fix this soon (even though they have already started on Shoppe Keep 2).
There is some stuff to enjoy about Shoppe Keep 2, but there's unfortunately some stuff to dislike. It feels like it left Early Access a little prematurely, as it's missing some things as I've explained, which would have helped the quality of life.
Shoppe Keep is a fun game for anyone to pick up. For the price point I would recommend to try it out. Yes it has its problems, some of them very annoying at times. But were not talking about an A List title here so it is to be expected
Shoppe Keep is a nice game on the surface, but it lacks any depth beyond the shop walls. That's why it gets repetitive very quickly and only trophy/achievement hunting can keep us playing.

Shoppe Keep is a fun and addictive simulation experience.
If you were thinking about leaving caves, dungeons, dragons... with the idea of relaxing in a little medieval shop... well, maybe you're going to live another great adventure! Shoppe Keep will give you plenty of hours managing a fantasy medieval shop where you will able to sell a lot of items, where you will have to avoid thieves getting your items and trying to obtain some profit in the process. Especially recommended to people who enjoy management games, but also enjoyable for people who like RPG games and want to try something new.

I would say if you enjoy business simulations in general, or if you’ve ever wondered what life is like on the other side of the sword counter, then you should give Shoppe Keep a try.
