Dissecting Design — Reccetear an Item Shop’s Tale

For this week’s Dissecting Design, we’re taking a look back at Reccetear and how it was ground zero fro the item shop simulator genre. I talked about how it’s use of managing the shop and dungeon crawling lent a unique design that made it stand out. I also talked about how the genre has not really had another major hit like it since.
