Rare Treasures: Dinnerware Trading Company
I wish I could rave about this one.
I am a HUGE fan of these type of games (Love Chocolatier and its sequels). And I don't see the problem with it being dinnerware (people collect it just like any other thing).
So I really wanted to like it.
The graphics while not as nice as the previously mentioned game are not that bad.
The music is pleasant enough.
You can adjust the music and sound volumes.
My problem would be that I found it boring. I don't doubt that the difficulty level will steadily get more difficult, but if I fall asleep before getting there I will never know if it was worth plowing through its tedious repetition.
I personally don't want to buy it and can not recommend purchasing it. But if you got an hour to kill try the demo and decide for yourself if it was really worth the loss of an hour of your day.

It would've been a nice game if the product was something other than dinnerware. I love chocolatier series but this game was just too boring

Dinner plates?! Seriously??
This game's style is similar to Chocolatier. You buy supplies, make stuff, sell stuff, travel for new supplies, etc. However, chocolate is nice - lots of people like chocolate - but dinner plates?! I don't know how anybody even came up with the idea, let alone thought it would be a good basis for a computer game. I loved Chocolatier, but I just can't seem to muster the same enthusiasm to make dinner plates.
The graphics are horrible in full screen (though not too bad windowed). The mini-games to set production amounts are really boring and simple so far. I'm not sure I can bear to play much more to see if they improve.
It also seems quite buggy so far. For example, during the Tutorial, a box pops up when you need to buy something and in order to complete the step, you have to click 'I know how to play' and bypass the tutorial.
The loading screen when travelling to new cities seems unnecessarily long for such shoddy graphics. I think the actual loading is taking far less time but the little graphic of the train hooting has to be played out.
Erm, anyway. Not much more to say. Hopefully there are some dinner plate fanatics out there who will cherish this game. Otherwise, I fear that the makers may have rather wasted their time.
