This one’s …not a pun. I’m not making the pun. I have dignity.
It’s time for another Steam Sifter, the series where I comb through the low and mixed rated titles on Steam and divide the cream from the crap. For the past few titles, we’ve mostly seen mechanical focused games. This time, we’ll be looking at a narrative game simply called The Shopkeeper, which is described on its page as “a point-and-click narrative game set in a space between the Twilight Zone, classic Lucasarts adventures, and Antiques Roadshow.” That may be the least accurate description of anything I have ever read.
