Of course, as far as I know, Shopkeeper is unique, I wouldn't be making it if it weren't.

But there are some games that are similar, in that they have elements that just click. Post here what you know. Here are two:


DungeonKeeper, of course.

You need to beat the japanese version. With our superior western culture, I'm sure you can do it.

Yes, one idea they have is random market fluctuations. That doesn't mix well with my general approach of maximum player control, but I do plan that the market influences prices, so if everyone else sells swords cheap, you can't sell them expensive. Basically, calculate some rolling average prices for items and use it to modify the willing-to-pay value.
