Merchant is a tycoon style game based in a fantasy RPG. Instead of controlling the hero of the story, you control the merchant that the hero buys and sells goods from. You will be responsible for helping the heroes by selling them things they need, while buying all of the items they do not want. The heroes are persistent characters in game, so they will return to you if you keep them happy.

After a 2+ year hiatus, Merchant is making its triumphant return!

Hi everyone!
Tyler here, the principle designer behind Merchant. In 2008, I first started on this concept with a few friends. I didn't know much of anything about making games at the time, so I decided to pursue a career in the field. A few years later, while at school, I attempted to create Merchant again, with a wonderful group of fellow students and alumni. Unfortunately, we were unable to realize its vision, and the project was put on hiatus. Now, 2 years later, I have the resources and skills necessary to see the project through to its completion. It's been a long journey, but I intend on seeing it through. I hope you will join me on this adventure, and can't wait to get Merchant into the hands of the players!
