Lithuanian indie developer Arvydas Žemaitis and Excalibur Games have released a demo for the fantasy business adventure Craftlands Workshoppe. The demo takes players to the clouds to manage their workshoppe during the Steam Game Festival: Autumn Edition with the early access release following the event’s conclusion. In addition a fresh launch trailer is now available for viewing.
From the lead developer of the indie Shoppe Keep series comes a brand new experience featuring a cast of colorful characters, intrigue, portals, air ships and so much more. While life in the clouds might seem like a dream, there is still so much work that needs to be done if one wants to turn a tidy profit with their hastily acquired and very dilapidated workshoppe. The skills of alchemy, cookery, and blacksmithing will be required to restore the workshoppe to its former glory.
Once the workshoppe is in working order the next thing is to make money by crafting stuff that is in need. Players can employ workers to hit anvils, stir cauldrons and assist with other workshop duties. After all, players will be more than busy managing their employees salaries, organizing their air fleet and become a tycoon in the clouds.
After becoming a master of the three noble crafts and making a successful workshoppe one might feel like there is a bigger story at play. By mastering every recipe and and building every blueprint one can make a key that unlocks an unknown realm. At the end of the day don’t forget to pet the dog.
