Moonlighter is an action role-playing game that mixes two distinct styles of gameplay into one amazingly fun experience. One half of Moonlighter involves you diving into dungeons to fight monsters and collect loot. The other half of the game has you taking your loot and selling it in your titular shop, aiming to get the perfect price that customers won't mind paying. You'll then take your proceeds and spend them upgrading the town, your shop, and your equipment so you can take on even greater challenges!
From the game's official website:
