Before there was science or medicine there was alchemy, the practice of mixing stuff together and hoping it would produce some kind of magic. This never worked, but it laid the groundwork for a lot of fantasy stories centuries later. In the upcoming game Potion Craft from publisher tinyBuild and developer NicePlay, you can take up the unauthentically-real practice of magic making as you brew up potions in your alchemy shop.
Each recipe requires exact ingredients, and the townspeople you’re trying to please have specific demands. Good thing you have an Enchanted Garden where the mystic plants that power your potions grow. Follow the instructions and you’ll have a full stock of wares in no time.

The best thing is that you don’t need to write down those special discoveries…you can save them to your recipe book with one click. Don’t forget to tend to your garden….proper care will result in bigger, better and more powerful herbs and fungi.
Potion Craft will be out on Steam Early Access September 21. But you don’t actually have to wait that long to try out the game…a demo is currently available on the same page. The demo will be yanked, though, once the Early Access version appears, so get to downloadin’.

They seemed to have covered all their bases with classic stuff like Pac-Man, 90s fighters like The Simpsons, Killer Instinct and Street Fighter, sports games like NBA Jam, and even racing cabinets like OutRun.
