A downloadable game for Windows

You are an alchemist, trapped eternally inside of your little potion-brewing kiosk - The Alchemist's Prison.

For all eternity, you are stuck inside of your own small world, selling magical concoctions to the adventurers, royalty and peasantry of the land.

Throw ingredients into your cauldron and brew them together, selling the resulting infusions to your customers as they request them!

Features -

- Randomly-generated customers with hundreds of sprites and hundreds of thousands of names. Each customer also has one of many voices and attitudes towards you as a shopkeeper!

- Eight different potions, each with a normal and large-sized variant.

- Each potion is made up of a combination of five or ten ingredients, and must be mixed at the correct temperature.

Made in 48 hours for the Ludum Dare 38 game jam!

Unfortunately, I ran out of time to do music, win conditions and a main menu, but there's still plenty to enjoy! Please feel free to leave a comment if you enjoyed, or if you want to leave some feedback :)

Install instructions

No installation required, just download, unzip, and run the program!

Sorry, Windows users only. I couldn't get a working Mac or Linux build :(
