* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything:
** Already have the items Caillou requests when he first appears? Recette says that she has them now (much to Caillou's surprise, since he thought them impossible to get) and sells them (with a fat bonus) without Caillou having to come in again!
** When food shortages raise up the price of your food items, they also increase the price of seeds and chestnuts (both of which are labeled as crafting materials, rather than edibles).

* KingMook: Some of the bosses are these, some even in a literal sense such as the Crowned Slime ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a blue slime with a crown on its head]] that is basically the King Slime from ''Franchise/DragonQuest'') and the Eyebat King who has a "fancy hat, common wings" (again, simply a very large Eyebat with a crown, but he can fire a WaveMotionGun from his eye). The Gauntlet (the enemy, not the floor with mooks) is also simply a very big Knight. Like his two colleagues before, he is accompanied by swarms of normal enemies of the type. Other bosses however tend to be decidedly more unique.

Added DiffLines:

* DubNameChange: From [[http://www.carpefulgur.com/drakblog/?p=14 the translation notes]]:
** Minor Changes:
---> On the topic of name changes, generally we didn’t engage in any at all. A few of the names were slightly naturalized in spelling – “Louie” vs. “Lui” and “Griff” vs. “Griffe”, but by and large we left the names alone, and even with a few of the “altered” names, the theme naming and the puns therein (as virtually all the characters have French words for names) remained perfectly obvious and intact.
** Tielle:
---> Tielle, in the original Japanese katakana, is named as “ティエール”, which one might think would actually be a cut-and-dry situation. The original site for the game, however, indicates a bit of a different spelling than you’d expect at first: “Tiers”. That is, the French word for “third”. When we spoke with EGS, we found out that this referred to her place in her family; that is, she was literally the third of three sisters.
** Pensee:
--->The one other, more minor, name change worth noting here is the name of the town itself. Originally the town was called “Heartsease”. It was altered largely as a result of one item: the “town magazine”. This was originally the “Hartzworker”, which operated on a pronunciation pun that works to some extent in Japanese (T and D sounds are separated only by dakuten marks in the Japanese alphabet, as are S and Z sounds) but didn’t really quite transfer over right to English. There was the added issue of the name not quite gelling with the very French feel of the rest of the town. We therefore asked EGS if they were alright with us changing the name to “Pensee”, and thus allowing us to call the magazine “Le Penseur”. If you’re wondering why we would go with “Pensee” of all things, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heartsease look at what kind of flower a heartsease is]].

* BrutalBonusLevel: Crystal Nightmare.

to:

* BrutalBonusLevel: Crystal Nightmare.Nightmare, the hardest dungeon by far, forces you to beat ten level chunks instead of the usual five. And at the end is a reward directly proportional to the number of sections you beat in a row; to get all three chests you must beat the entire 30 level dungeon in one go. And then there's its Boss Rush, with ''thirty'' increasingly strong bosses in a row. You fight every boss in the game at least once, including the unique ones, and fight a few of them three times (most of them coming at you 2-3 at a time when you fight them again).



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

* LevelMapDisplay: The dungeons all have a minimap that completes itself as you go through each randomly generated level. Two of the random effects that can happen on each level play with this; one reveals the entire map from the start, the other disables it.
* LowFantasy: Considering the main focus of the game is on the simple everyday trials of an item shop owner, most of what mixes up the setting is only implied or heard of as background information, some of which could be base enough for a game plot in and of themselves. Outside of just what Recette deals with personally, we got a refugee princess, TheFairFolk reinventing themselves in order to avoid extinction, which ties into the inherent human dominance of the setting which leads to the prejudice against Elves and Demons, and while magic is a simple and everyday occurrence the local churches are trying to snuff out any and all magic items, something Recette helps prevent only through a head-ache inducing loop hole. Also, the most prevalent threats to the world are dispatched by a simple item shop owner and her hired help. The closest thing to a HeroicFantasy stock hero is Recette's dad, who is... underwhelming to say the least.

** Somebody ''else'' could snatch up your rare and valuable fusion item first. Expect most of your premium equipment to be bought by strange old men for God only knows what purpose and little kids "on an errand"; though you can, at the cost of your current EXP combo, simply demand an utterly unreasonably huge price, which will cause them to run for cover immediatly and give your adventurers a chance to ask for the item instead (finding that trick out is a GuideDangIt in itself).

** Even in endless mode saving money to buy expensive equipment before tackling on Survival Mode is a good idea since you do not carry it over, but you carry items to it (save from Survival Hell). This can exponentially extend your score as the debt will eventually reach ''millions'' in the later weeks.

* {{Rare Random Drop}}s: The best fusions require these, and so does recruiting Caillou. Special mention goes to the BrutalBonusLevel BossRush: '''Each and every''' of these encounters has a normal drop whose drop chance is some 25%, an uncommon drop that is around 5% and a ''rare'' drop that is less than 2%. Even ThatOneBoss at the very end. You want OneHundredPercentCompletion for your Item Encyclopedia? [[ThisIsGonnaSuck Have fun!]]
