Thanks for the frontpage Tom, apologies for all the updates!

Update: I updated the game (again) to solve some of the issues people have reported. If you see 'version 2.3' in the bottom right of the preloader you're playing the latest version. Note that it might take a while before the new version gets approved. Start a new game to ensure you're not loading old, possibly corrupted, data.

If the game slows down, try restarting your browser, I'm looking for a more permanent fix.

Hi, welcome to Rubato Hills! Shortly you'll embark on an epic journey which will eventually see you become the wealthiest and happiest citizen in town! Well, either that or you'll fail miserably and end up in the gutter, selling your kidney and a lung to make it through another week. The recordshop business is not an easy one, you see. There are lots of factors you need to keep in mind, lots of variables you need to change based on your customers, your store, events in town, the list goes on.

Should you have what it takes you'll have a good time though! There are multiple properties you can buy and outfit with new objects to attract more and richer customers. There are lots of opportunities and possibilities to expand your business in Rubato Hills. Good luck and have fun!

This has been the biggest project I've ever undertaken. I started messing around with the idea of making a tycoon game back in november last year :O So I'm glad it's finally finished, hope you enjoy! Oh and by the way, there are 3 leaderboards in the game, after 25, 50 and 100 days, and your progress is saved automatically after every day. So if you need a break don't be afraid you'll lose your progress if you quit the game. Medals should be coming soonish.

I've had a lot of help from users from Newgrounds with testing the game. Thanks again funkycaveman, q13qew, wolffreak, ArthuruhtrA, inylq, DETHman666, TheDarkJuggla, gasattack23, doondeka, devaca and all the other people I forgot to mention (send me a pm).

It was pretty good. Held my attention long enough to keep me playing. Maybe could have had things such as LP sections, thieves and security added as theft is so common in a record store where I'm from hah.

its just not playable.

It's great, however when I sold my DJ table, it wouldn't let me buy another.
Who cares, since you can't play it anymore!

It's so weird. No one wanted my dance CDs.
Awesome game and i have put it in my favourites to come back to it in the future

its fun if you are bored.
