Play a desperate man who needs to find the right antique to impress a rich relative, and discovers a Pandora’s box of treasures in an antique shop.  Each unique item comes with its own hidden past; some quirky, some macabre.

Choose wisely and be careful what you touch, as you will face unexpected consequences!


  • Fully voiced and starring Jeff Ricketts (Buffy, Angel, Firefly, ST:Enterprise)
  • Graphic novel style graphics
  • Interactive short co-written by James Wallis (Extraordinary Adventures of Baron v. Münchhausen and  Once Upon A Time [the game])

The Shopkeeper will be released this month for PC, Mac and Linux.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal. "I put my heart and soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh "I need solitude for my writing; not like a hermit - that wouldn't be enough - but like a dead man." - Franz Kafka "I've been to hell and back, my boy." - Susan Ashworth, The Cat Lady
