** Justified, since the Dungeons are alive and change based on who is in them. [[spoiler:Specifically, Arma is a golem whose job is to rearrange the dungeons. It is outright stated that she is the one placing the chests and putting items in them. WHERE she gets the items from is another question entirely]]
*** The answer to the spoiler is alluded to [[spoiler: when Caillou mentions the Church has been seizing artifacts from people not protected by the Adventurer's or Merchant's Guilds. Combined with a priest in {{Chantelise}} (which shares a world with Recettear) who can give hints on finding hidden treasures, it seems likely the church is supplying the golems for some reason.]]

** Several of these are [[MythologyGag Mythology Gags]]/[[ContinuityNod Continuity Nods]] to ''{{Chantelise}}'', where the descriptions were accurate.

* MythologyGag: While [[spoiler:Griff]] holds disdain for fairies, he states that fairies who used to be human are exempt. This is likely a nod to {{Creator/Easy Game Station}}'s previous game ''{{Chantelise}}'' in which one of the main characters is a human-turned-fairy.

Gameplay alternates between tending to the shop and entering the dungeons around the town of Pensee. Recette and Tear can't fight, but they can hire adventurers to enter the dungeons and fight for them in search of new items. At the end of each week, Recette must have enough money saved in her account to pay off an increased portion of her debt in order to continue. Failure causes it to be revealed as AllJustADream and allows you to restart from the second day with everything you've accumulated apart from story related aquisitions, such as adventurers.

* SpritePolygonMix: This is fairly noticeable in dungeons. The characters are 2D sprites while the monsters are pre-rendered sprites of the VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry or VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG type. The backgrounds and bosses are true 3D, and look like they came from a Playstation era game.

* DungeonBasedEconomy: You run the local item shop for adventurers who go out to dungeons. You get to follow them into the dungeon if you want to. Part of the story even involves how the dungeons work.

Officially localized by [[http://www.carpefulgur.com/ Carpe Fulgur]], the game has been picked up for online distribution by Impulse, {{Steam}}, and [=GamersGate=]. The international version of the soundtrack is up on iTunes and includes, among other songs, both the vocal version of the theme and its instrumental version. To date, the localized version of Recettear has sold over three hundred thousand copies, and by Carpe Fulgur's claim has made EGS well over US$500,000.

** Inverted in the fact that ''you'' are the shopkeeper now, gouging poor adventurers out of their hard earned cash. Tear even mentions Adam Smith by name when you buy your first stock from the Merchant guild with the express purpose of reselling at an inflated price.\\
\\
The game however strongly encourages selling them equipment at low prices since it'll benefit you when you go adventuring with them later.
** "Gouging" is the light term once you start seeing increases or decreases in prices. You can charge upwards of '''300%''' on something that has had a price increase and get away with it. More so if people trust you and/or you run a more high-end expensive shop.\\
\\
Of course, you can do this both ways when people start selling stuff back to you. You can buy things as low as 20% of the base price.

* InfiniteStockForSale: You always have a finite number of items to sell (since you're limited to what you find or buy wholesale). The highest level of items you can buy at wholesale price from the Merchant's Guild and some of the items in the market always tend to be only available in limited numbers as well.
