About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

'​Potion Craft: Alchemist Simulator' Leaves Early Access, Coming This Fall - Trailer

by Judy on June 13, 2022 @ 7:43 p.m. PDT

​Potion Craft is an alchemist simulator where you physically interact with your tools and ingredients to brew potions.

You play as an aspiring alchemist who had to leave their hometown, as you wander the land looking for a new place to stay you stumble upon an abandoned cottage. From the looks of it a wizard used to reside here long ago. You decide to make this your home and convert the place into a potion shop. That means it’s time for you to start your journey down The Alchemist’s Path, learn the secrets of potion making, and forge your own destiny to become the alchemist this town needs!

You're in full control of the whole shop: invent new recipes, attract customers and experiment to your heart's content. Just remember: the whole town is counting on you.

Leaves, flowers, berries, roots, fruits, minerals, and a plethora of mushrooms are at the ready for your mortar and pestle. Just like espresso, the fineness of the grind matters!

Concoct your potion plan. Grind ingredients and carefully mix them in your cauldron. Heat the coals. Boil and stir. Add the base: water, oil, or… something else. Congrats on your first potion! Was it easy to learn? Now try mastering it!

Potion Craft: Alchemist Simulator leaves Early Access on PC in Fall 2022. The title has sold hundreds of thousands of copies and has a 93% positive user rating on Steam.

Carefully plan your route via the Alchemy Map to combine different effects. Be mindful of common sense: you won’t find a market for a poisonous healing potion… right? Or would you?

Every day customers will come to your store looking for solutions to their problems. You will face consequences depending on what you decide to sell them. Attract guilds, befriend notable figures (or feud with them), gain riches and influence - and one day, you may even decide the fate of the whole town.

Every alchemist needs ingredients. You can buy them from traveling merchants: it can be pricey, but successful haggling may save you some coin. Or you can just grow your own!

Want to give a special appearance to your best potions? Go ahead! Change bottle shape, label type, icon, and colors. You can even give it a custom name and label description. Carefully arrange your unique potions to showcase them on your shop’s shelves and tables… or carelessly throw them around - we’re not gonna tell you what to do, just have fun!

Key Features:

  • Manage a medieval potion shop. Meet your fellow townsfolk, understand their needs from the stories they are telling you, and sell them the right potions to keep your business running. Buy and sell ingredients, grow your own in Enchanted garden, and do whatever it takes to stay in business.
  • Unique visuals inspired by medieval manuscripts and medical texts. Dive into an authentic medieval atmosphere created by carefully crafted characters, interiors, and a relaxing soundtrack.
  • Hyper satisfying physical interactions with ingredients and equipment. Harvest herbs, mushrooms, & crystals from the Enchanted Garden. Grind them carefully with your mortar and pestle to release their effects and add them to your cauldron.
  • Sandbox style Alchemy map system. Mix up a nice healing infusion with mana restoration, or add a frost effect to your regular poison for some extra spice. Fire, frost, healing, poison, explosion, magical vision, invisibility... your potions potential is limitless!

Potion Craft is in development for PC (Steam) and scheduled for Fall 2022.
