Best Indie RPG - Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale
It's not often that a $20 game can compete with the AAA titles of the big boys. Recettear didn't just compete - many of us found this game getting more play time than titles priced at 3 times the cost. The hook of running an RPG Item Shop might get you to try it, but once you do the amazingly deep and more importantly - ADDICTIVE - gameplay will have you up nights for "just one more turn". As if the endlessly fun mechanics weren't enough, the game's aesthetics and characters give it a truly unique and memorable charm. It will have you saying "Capitalism, ho!" - and if you don't know what I'm talking about, then you need to try this deserving award winner.
