In Monster Pet Shop you operate a shop that grows, exhibits, and sells fantastic magical creatures. The gameplay consists of virtual pet collection & care, along with some very light business-management elements. In the beginning of the game, the player is contacted by a long-lost relative who is the curator of a unique pet shop. The relative wishes for the player to learn how to run the shop so that they may inherit it and allow the relative to retire. To do so, they will be tasked with taking care the shop’s equally unique tenant pets and discovering new ones.
