A short visual novel about a struggling alchemist, and the strange opportunity that could save their business.

A small, simple story with 3 endings to discover.

Will you people read the game description before you play? It says it's a, "short visual novel". Judge it based on what it is. As far as a short, visual novel goes? It's great!! It has wonderful visuals and music and the story is very interesting in my opinion. I like how the choices affect the story and I love the characters' personalities. Don't give it one star just because you were expecting an action rpg or a porno. That's like going to a Subway and complaining that all they have is sandwiches because you went to a sandwich shop expecting them to have tacos and nachos for some unknown reason. Stop hurting creators who work hard to give you a quality game just because you don't like the type of game it is. There are lots of games you can play. The world wasn't made for you. People who like these kinds of games can play it and you can just leave it alone and go find something else.

Just as good as all the other games I've played by Raius so far... Excellent storyline, with just the tiniest bit of challenge or choice mixed in to let the player have input in what happens in said storyline. Keep up the good work!

Love the art style too!

The story is ok, but a bit too generic in a way. The characters are interesting and I feel like you could have done more with them.

When you choose to use a wrong potion it would be more interesting if the situations would be described and different every time instead of "Regardless of what the potion did". It would also be interesting to see an ending where your wrong choice of potion would make the adventurers get mad at you and quit / get hurt and quit / die. Brutal but a realistic option.

another great game my man, i personally liked millika village more but this is definitely a great game

I am sorry, a little bit too much generic story and simple reading and too little gameplay and too simplistic choices for my taste.

I find the endings unrewarding and the replay-ability to get the other ending a chore.

What was done well were the character portraits. There is something about the witch character that made me wish to see her as a hentai character, she was really seductively drawn. Now if you could at least unlock her nudes by winning with the right ending then at least it would be worth it. otherwise it was too boring and unrewarding. The endings should have art, plain text not rewarding especially since it is predictable what it will say before you make the choice anyway.
