There are usually potion shops in RPGs where you can buy bottled spells for both offensive and defensive purposes, but what’s it like on the other end of the counter? In the new game Potion Craft from publisher tinyBuild and developer NicePlay, you can take up the practice of magic making as you brew up potions in your alchemy shop.
Passing the Turing Test is the ultimate goal of robot builders: that is, creating an AI so advanced that an actual human cannot tell the difference. But what if, as a consequence, you could be a robot and not realize it? That’s the question indie developers Metagalaxy Panda are dramatizing in their roguelike card battling game Anti-TuringTest (we’re not sure what the reason is for the lack of the space there).
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.
Spider Nest Games’ Vault of the Void is a deckbuilding game inspired by the mechanics of real-life competitive card games (CCG). Just as in those games, the player has complete control over their deck in Vault of the Void, and can shuffle their deck as they see fit. The game’s features include dynamic deck management, enemy previews before combat, and a full breakdown of every tile in an upcoming run. Sounds like the game would almost be too easy, but the developer compensates by making the battles super-challenging.
