Hi everyone! Here is my entry for the October Challenge : Vintage Game Shop
Vintage Game Shop is a game about using your knowledge of retro or classic video games to make profit!
Everyday, people will come to your shop to sell you vintage games and consoles. Your goal is buying them as cheaply as possible, so you can earn some money when you’ll resell them to another client!
Your profit will enable you to buy rarer and more expensive items, so you can complete your personal game collection.
Will you earn enough money to buy all of the most iconic games in history?
As you can see, this is a “documentary game” about the history of video games, and it was heavily influenced by the “Pawn Stars” TV show!
This game is an “hobby” project I made during nights and evenings after my day job. As an avid retro gamer and game history enthusiast, I wanted to create a game about history of video games for quite a long time. So, I finally made the jump!
To be fair, I started working on it long before October Challenge. Ideas and concept aside, the development work started in March 2016. In previous years, I wanted to take part October Challenge but I always lacked the confidence (and time) to expand my jam games into more polished projects. This year, I’m happy to finally be able to submit a “finished” game!
Oh, and this project is the reason I skipped LD35 and LD36 (too much work, so few time), so I hope you’ll enjoy it!
