PQube announced they will publish the Crinkle Cut Games-developed sim-store manager Discounty on PC via Steam.
Discounty welcomes players to Blomkest, a charming yet weathered harbor town, where the call of adventure awaits. Your beloved aunt extends an invitation for you to join her in this tight-knit community, tasking you with the management of its sole grocery store, the local Discounty branch. The town’s population has dwindled over the years, and it’s up to you to breathe life back into Blomkest and put it back on the map.
In this unique journey, you will have the opportunity to craft your shopkeeper persona. Personalize your appearance, handpick your outfit, and select a name that resonates with your individual style. No matter how you choose to present yourself, you can rest assured that your ever-wise Aunt will always recognize you, no matter your chosen guise.

The players’ role as a shopkeeper in Blomkest involves more than just manning the cash register. They have the opportunity to build and expand their dream shop. Rearrange shelves and products to create an inviting atmosphere where customer satisfaction is guaranteed. Thoughtfully design your store’s aisles to guide an array of shoppers to their unique needs. As profits grow, they can reinvest to further expand their shop, but be warned – excessive growth might upset their fellow villagers.
In Blomkest, the customer is always right. Balancing the myriad tasks of a shopkeeper is players’ responsibility. Ensure the shelves are well-stocked, the floors gleam and the storage room exudes perfect order and tidiness. Each visitor arrives with their own shopping list and distinct preferences, and not everyone is the easiest to deal with. It becomes the players’ heartfelt duty to ensure that every shopper leaves with a smile on their face.
Efficiency is key as players ring up customers’ shopping swiftly. Your customers don’t have all day, so quickly scan through shopping lists and successfully calculate total bills. Your efficiency will make customers happy, encouraging their loyalty. Can you navigate the bustling store to meet everyone’s needs with grace and goodwill?
Blomkestians may be a bit skeptical of newcomers, but the town still has quite a few local producers and manufacturers. Gain their trust, strike trade deals, and sell local goods to boost your profits.
Outside of store hours, players are free to explore the town and get to know its quirky residents. Build relationships with everyone in town and unravel the mystery of Blomkest’s past. Making a few friends can’t hurt your business, either. However, not all of your fellow villagers want you to succeed; as it turns out, selling frozen fries alone won’t heal the town. Building heartfelt relationships may also lead to the formation of lifelong enemies in this dynamic and captivating narrative.
