A spiritual successor to Carl Chudyk`s Glory to Rome, Mottainai takes players on a journey to a buddhist temple to create various works of art. Each player is an acolyte in a Buddhist temple, creating works to display and sell to the visitors and tourists who come by. These works are crafted of materials of varying value - determining both the difficulty to complete the work and its worth to you. Completed works can be displayed in your Gallery to train your helpers, or in your Gift Shop to allow you to make sales. In the end, the winner will be the player with the most valuable completed works, sales, and backorders.
