SINGAPORE — Feb. 25, 2015 — Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! is now on Steam Greenlight seeking votes from RPG and simulation fans worldwide. In Holy Potatoes!, players take on the role of the blacksmiths essential to every RPG — researching, forging, and selling new weapons for questing heroes. In the Holy Potatoes! world, even dogs are shaped like potatoes
Developed by Singapore’s Daylight Studios, Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! allows players to discover and forge more than 200 weapons — including daggers, swords, katanas, rifles, cannons, and more. Players also get to grow their businesses in 20 wacky areas, hire/fire/overwork 30 talented potato smiths, and encounter 10 legendary pop culture heroes. The game score is composed by the legendary Kimura Masahiko, who worked on the original score for the Genso Suikoden Series and the Castlevania series.
“Holy Potatoes! is a look at an RPG from the other side,” says Don Sim, CEO and executive producer at Daylight Studios. “One day, we sat down and wondered: ‘What do NPCs do when they’re not repeating the same lines over and over again?’ We realized there was a huge world out there that no one had yet to explore — and we just had to bring it to life.”
