Why sell useless junk to NPCs in a fantasy role-playing game when you can buy useless junk from NPCs instead? Wait, that’s not really an improvement…
Nevertheless, that’s the gist of Kabam’s Shop Titans, a free-to-play mobile game that’s making its way to Steam next month. You’ll play as a merchant in a bustling city, with the option to buy — and, more importantly, “sell to aspiring heroes … at a markup!” — all sorts of items, wondrous and mundane, from your fully customizable shop. Employ a group of heroes, equipped with your best wares, out to collect more loot, which you can make use of in the crafting and enchanting system that will let you turn trash into treasure.
Shop Titans will offer cross-play between PC and mobile devices, allowing you to take your shop-minding in the go with you, and you can join up with friends to form guilds and take on special limited-time events. For the more competitive capitalists out there, there’s a worldwide player-driven marketplace that will put your shopkeeping skills to the ultimate test.
Shop Titans comes to Steam on May 5.
