Breda – April 22, 2022 – Winkeltje: The Little Shop has opened its doors to new shopkeepers with today’s full launch on Steam and consoles.

Winkeltje (pronounced as “Win-kel-tsjuh”) means little shop in Dutch, with the simulator letting players take on the fantasy of being their own shopkeeper in a relaxing, timeless environment. Winkeltje: The Little Shop is filled to the brim with tradable goods, from bulk resources to perishable vegetables, tools, clothes, and even alchemical elixirs. Plant crops, farm them, build your store, customize it with furniture and crafting stations, impress your customers, adjust your inventory according to the seasons and events, and grow your business emporium to new profitable heights! 
The full launch out of Steam Early Access on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Series X, PlayStation 4 and 5,, and of course Steam, is the crowning success of the shop simulator. The release brings a ton of new content, including staff (hirable and fireable), new decorations, building options, achievements, character customization options, and more. Winkeltje: The Little Shop is available for $14.99 / €12,49 or regional equivalent.
