Experience a pleasant journey alongside Sophie, her friends, and a diverse cast of townspeople that help with their adventuring needs. Uncover the multitude of mysteries of Alchemy that have been hidden away and forgotten alongside Plachta, the Mysterious Book.

In a series first, two key illustrators were involved in the making of Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book – NOCO and Yuugen. Their distinctive work brings the in-game world to life and creates a dynamic environment where time, weather, and relationships play a key role in the adventures of the young new Alchemist and her trusted allies.
I bought this yesterday and played it for a couple of hours. So far I haven’t liked the changes that they have made, but hopefully it will win me over in the end.
