Description

Vintage Game Shop is a "documentary game" about the history of video games.

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?

History

Many books and video documentaries exist about the history of video games. But would it be possible to also use games as a medium to learn about their history?

This game is my attempt to answer this question. I'm a solo hobbyist game designer, but I’m also an amateur game collector myself. I’ve been bargaining vintage games on Ebay or garage sales quite often in the past few years. Oddly enough, inspiration finally struck me while I was watching an episode of the ‘Pawn Stars’ TV show: how about a game where you’re trading vintage games to buy the rarest video games ever?.

And so was born Vintage Game Shop…
