Cart Life now available on Steam

Easier than ever to feel miserable

The most depressing shopkeeper simulation in all of human history, Cart Life, is now available for purchase on Steam. It's a dirt cheap game which will almost certainly challenge, frustrate and depress you with its morose tales of people working themselves to death, only to scrape by.

It's only $5 normally, but it's being introduced at a 30% discount for a limited time. I guarantee you haven't played anything else like it before and highly recommend that you do. I love it, and I'm grateful it's arrived on Steam so that I'm more likely to remember to play again.
