Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale review (PC)

27 November 2010
  • Excerpt: is the surprise success of 2010, and deservedly so. It’s a homebrew game that, when published by what was little more than a fan base, quickly turned the part-time publishers hobby into a full time job. It doesn’t just exceed expectations: it rewrites them.
