Relevant Metaness Categories
How is your game meta (within each relevant category)?
Breaks the Fourth Wall: The game does not break the wall in the purest sense, though it does seem to know that it is a game. There are also references / allusions to real world events.
Genre Deconstruction: The game serves as a deconstruction of RPGs such as Skyrim, wherein the player can buy items from numerous shops. It also deconstructs management sims where you can set prices and build up a business.
Game Mechanic Deconstruction: It deconstructs the mechanics of buying and selling from RPG shops, as well as the role of the shopkeeper in such games.
Please list any pre-made art/music/other assets that you used.
I used the VT323 font from Google Fonts.

Anything you want to say to players before they play?
The controls are all mouse-driven, except for when button prompts are listed. You can close the game at any time using Esc.
This is my first attempt at entering a game jam such as this. I created the game by myself, working for about a day spread across two weeks. I wrote it in C++ using the SFML library, which I have some experience with but am still learning.
On the off chance the game does not run correctly, try making sure that Visual C++ is installed (though I tried to make sure it works).
I had fun making this, and I hope you enjoy! Stick with it, it starts out slow, but ramps up pretty quickly. If it doesn't run or crashes, ah well, thanks for checking it out! ;)
