Haunted Chocolatier is a simulation game, in which instead of a farming simulation, Chocolatier is a shop sim where players will be creating chocolate and selling it in their store. Chocolatier has NPCs with their own stories that players will get to know as they grow their shop and a local town full of stores, like Stardew. The game is developed by Eric Barone, and the one thing that he has gone deeper on is the combat, which, according to him, is a greater focus in his next game. Shields, which players can use to block attacks and stun enemies, as a result, will be possessed by Chocolatier.
There will also be other off-hand items as alternatives to shields to compliment different play styles, according to Barone. The reveal trailer also showed a player using a bow and arrow. There are also some snippets to catch in the reveal trailer about exactly how players running their chocolate shops work.
