    Hmm, this could take some inspiration from Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale.

    I have never played that game, but looking at it... I'm not seeing the similarities between what I see in my head versus what I see in screenshots.

    Except for it being about a store.


    Is this game any good, should I get it?

    You should go for Kamidori instead. You get to do all of that PLUS you can have sex with a mud elemental!

    It's pretty good and you should play it.

    Just pretend all items you sell are different kinds of donuts - and you basically have the kind of game you described in that post ;)

    I dunno about this game, but yours would be similar to Ultima, yes?

    With all the baking bread donuts, fetch quests to collect ingredients, non linear storyline that reacts to your choice of supplier, advertiser etc., but mostly the baking part.

    :takemymoney: Also I think you should blend the two ideas together into one huge RPG/Tycoon game.

    Thanks. I know it's a lot, but I'm actually ok if they don't sell. :)

    Uhh...pretty much the whole Codex was aware of that one Roguey. Annie posted several times on the Codex that the game was literally unplayable and unshippable with only a short time to go before release, when Baudoin 'left', and that most folks at Obsidian gave Sawyer major kudos for managing to salvage a sellable product out of it.

    Did you post it somewhere? I'm surprised it was bid on so fast so I, think you posting about it may have had a hand in it.

    I was referring to http://www.rpgcodex.net/forums/inde...y-time-with-old-man-davis.83113/#post-2660141 which I believe no one has actually publicly stated.

    I posted it over at the penny-arcade forums and (naturally) the Obsidian forums. So, maybe from one of those, but I dunno. Might just be a collector that coincidentally saw it.

    Anthony Davis, I think you priced the BGII game to high. I've sold several (without shrink-wrap) and they only go for around $50-$60 these days. You would probably get more starting bids if you had it start at $150.

    You might be right, but I also had a guy send me a video where apparently this is the Asian version of the CE and he said it was even more rare (based solely apparently on the out of 7000 from the picture of it).

    What do you guys think? Here is the video:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBY41OBTJIY

    He seems knowledgeable and has a hell of a collection.

    Interesting, never knew about the Asian edition but other than the number it is still just a repackaged US edition. I certainly wouldn't be paying $600-$1,000 like he was talking.... plus... from Russia, really can he be trusted... :troll:
