Use the Potions You Craft in Alchemist: The Potion Monger

Hello soon to be Alchemists,

I’m Mateusz, Game Designer of Alchemist: The Potion Monger, here to convince you to buy property surrounded by gigantic vines (a small annoyance) on a faraway island.

This fresh opportunity is now available for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S owners!

Purchase Agreement Includes:

Solving puzzles to brew potions and using them during RPG adventures.

Furnishing and decorating your newly bought property.

Adopting alchemical pets (and petting them!).

And much more…

Interested?

Feel welcome to the world of Alchemist: The Potion Monger, full of anthropomorphic animals! Let me be your guide.

Potion Brewing

Alchemy is the key aspect of the game (as you surely expected from the title called Alchemist: The Potion Monger).

Every potion recipe is based on Aspects – reflections of emotions, forces of nature, and ideas. Aspects are divided into four Elements:

Earth – the backbone of many brews, such as Healing Potions, Poisons, Resurrection Potions, and many more!

Air – a huge part in Speed Potions, Jump Potions, Perfumes, and all kinds of mind-boosting brews.

Fire – can set fires (what a surprise), explode, cause aggression, or spread love.

Water – creates brews such as Cleaning Potions, Quick Reflexes Potions, Ice Potions, etc.

Creating a potion is no easy task and every brew is a Puzzle to solve. How you solve them will depend on the ingredients and alchemical tools you have available. Use various alchemical and other (demonic altars, holy waters, and more) tools to process the ingredients. Then put them into the cauldron and start brewing!

Using your Brews

This is a unique aspect among the alchemist simulators available on the market. After creating potions venture outside your home and influence the world with their help! Possibilities are plenty:

Help the farmer grow plants

Or„ “Grow” the farmer!

Make a fireworks show for the townsfolk

Or freeze them with the bottled snowstorm!

Turn the townsfolk into sheep and adopt them

Or burn them to the glory of the oinking pig god!

Design your Home/Lab

and make it truly your own! – Alchemist: The Potion Monger will allow a lot of customization in designing your home and yard.

When you first arrive at the Island as an alchemist apprentice, you’ll have an empty home, a sleeping bag, and only some basic alchemical tools with you. Slowly you’ll be able to fill the empty space with furniture, trophies (from slain bosses), advanced tools, and some other weird stuff.

Acquire blueprints from the market, find them in the world, or receive them as a quest reward, and make your – empty at-first – home a true mansion of the wealthy alchemist!

Pets

To learn alchemy you’ll surely need some help, luckily you’re not alone.

You’ll arrive on the island with yourtrusty Shiba (you’ll be able to name him/her as you wish). He/she is very special. He/she is the best boy/girl!

Actually, there is one more thing that makes him/her special -the ability to discover the Earth’s element Aspects. With time you’ll be able to let more special animals join your party! Every element (Earth, Air, Fire, and Water) has its own corresponding pet for you to find and tame.

Potion Trading

Everybody has to eat, and is there any better way to make your coin than to sell magical potions to those in need?

Start with working for the middleman and fulfill potion contracts to earn Gold and Reputation. Receive bonuses for better-quality brews, and slowly grow topurchase your own market stall!

Every sold Potion will award you with:

Gold- a basic resource on the Island, thanks to it you’ll be able to buy Ingredients, Blueprints, Home Upgrades, Potion Recipes, Skill Books, Tools, and more. However, there are some things gold cannot buy…

Reputation- You arrive on the Island as a nobody and have to slowly gain trust and renown. Do various quests for the Islanders, complete potion contracts, and participate in various events to grow your reputation. A higher reputation will unlock new goods in stores, more quests, more lucrative potion contracts, and progress in the story.

Abilities

During your alchemist career, your character will develop in various ways. However, there is no ordinary leveling-up system, instead, you’ll be able to get/find/purchase ability scrolls. When you acquire them, the task for the respective skill will be unlocked (e.g. have four potion effects on yourself at once – Slower Metabolism), and when you finish it, you’ll gain a new ability.

Abilities take the form of Merit Badges for you to collect and store in the Almanac, here are some of them:

Pro Milker – Milking the cow will give you two times the milk.

Farmer – Planted seeds grow faster.

Toxic Botanist – Allow to pick up toxic plants without hurting yourself.

Rascal – Acquire more gold when knocking out characters.

That’s not all that will await you on the Island when you get there, but I’ll let you discover the rest for yourself.

Happy brewing!
