The Merchant's Tale is a exploration/adventure story laced with game elements that are not entirely vital to the game play. It is my very first game, as well.

Features a beautiful OST by Trass featuring songs such as the opening theme!


A drifting merchant who goes by the name of Toimaru travels all the land to unreasonably sell his goods and is never seen again after doing so. He seals his true identity with a mask, nobody knowing or learning of who he really is; concealing a past that only he will ever know.

While doing his usual business, Toimaru has a run in with a self-proclaimed goddess known as Mao, who is running from and being hunted by officials, unsure of why due to memory loss.

Given the circumstances, he agrees to help escort her back to her shrine to seek answers as to why she’s in such a wanted predicament in the first place; With a price, of course.


☆ Custom graphics ☆
☆ Custom music ☆
☆ 1+ hour of gameplay ☆

Oh no worries. Nobody would ever be offended by that. It's a little bit amusing perhaps, but it's great you show passion for the work! Appreciation is such a wonderful thing.

And you can build stories into one hour just fine. Ever read a short-story? It is hard to reach the level of depth in an hour that another might have many at use for, but that doesn't mean it can't have impact.
For adventures, the atmosphere and world play a way larger part than just RPGs, so it actually benefits from a short game, because then the atmosphere is still fresh and new. It's easier to put it together when you have an overview, too. So it often is a wise choice to make.
I've played more good short titles than long ones, generally.

I hope you get well soon! I know how it is to feebly go about your days. Thinking is such a difficult thing, it's the first to suffer when you are unwell.

well, i actually meant to screenshots and the opening song on your tumblr (i dont really use tumblr like at all). maybe mine wasnt the best worded comment of all time, lemme just ask for forgiveness if ever your intelligence was insulted. i dont really post much here and i wasnt in the "right" state of mind (still on a sickness+medicine induced crazy) and exams arent doing much to help at all so what i am actually saying is that i assume that this game will be short (i mean, how can you drag a straight to the point story like that and not ruin it?) and wanted to give like a shout-out (which was apparently taken the wrong way) and say the work done here is pretty nice (ive actually already played lots of games here on rmn. and again, sorry for my poor choice of words on my past comment. will try to be careful next time (if ever there IS a next time


Hey hey, don't worry about it! ^o^ I'm actually very honored to hear your thoughts on my game! ♥♥ but yes, I hope to definitely make some cooler games in the future after this one, and I'm also looking forward to hearing whatever feedback you have for this one once it's finished so I can make the next even better! so really, thank you for your kind comment (and good luck with exams and what not, don't push yourself too hard!) !!

@Kylaila @nhubi and thanks to you both too!! :-D it makes me beyond happy to see that you three see potential in my project!

@Ultragunner, it wasn't offence, more confusion, at least on my part, hence the reason I asked if it was maybe another game you had played. No worries at all, and I imagine just like the rest of us you'll be waiting to see what ichigo produces when TMT comes out.

Feel better.

Definitely, definitely! It's tough even to nominate since we only get 1 per category, but look at all of these games.

Merchant's Tale already has absolutely gorgeous artwork, and promises to have some, ahem, great music.
*slapped into a well*

The setting is also promising, though of course we'd really need to play the game to really experience it.
