Cover Game features

Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk – Chromatic Shift - First of the well-loved Dusk trilogy, Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk provides an all-new Atelier experience that will feel familiar to series veterans, while successfully distinguishing itself from its colourful predecessors in the Arland series.
Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk – Alchemy in a Fading World - The alchemy mechanics in Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk are a massive reinvention from everything that has come before. Incorporating elements of tabletop card games, the item creation process rewards experimentation and discovery -- and certainly never gets dull!
Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk – Wonder and Danger in the Twilight - Exploration and combat are two more areas where Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk will feel comfortably familiar to series veterans -- but which also reinvent a couple of key systems that give the game as a whole a distinctive feel.
Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk – Bonds of People - Atelier Ayesha's narrative looks at a variety of interesting concepts, most of which will be familiar to series veterans. Probably the most important is the fact that, as a wise man once said, bonds of people are the true power...
The Music of Atelier, Vol. 10: Atelier Ayesha – The Alchemist of Dusk - As we wrap up our time with Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk, it's time to take a good, long listen to some of the finest pieces of music from its soundtrack. I hope you're ready for the emotional gutpunch that is MARIA!
Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky – Corporate Alchemy - Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky sees a collision between the mysterious worlds of alchemy and... corporate culture? Can new government employees Escha and Logy get away from paperwork for long enough to work on their skills?
Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky – A Question of Technique - In Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky, we see one of the most complex, mechanically dense and satisfying alchemy systems in the whole series. So let's take a closer look at how our heroic duo does things in their shared workshop!
Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky – What a Way to Make a Living - Escha and Logy have a job to do. In fact, they have quite a few jobs to do over the course of their time working for the Colseit branch of the government. How does all that tie in with the traditional Atelier gameplay? Let's take a look.
Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky – Battles at the End of the World - Escha and Logy don't just have alchemy to be getting on with -- the world of Dusk is a dangerous place, so any good alchemist worth their salt needs to know how to lay the smack down on the local Slags, too. Let's take a closer look at combat in the second Dusk game.
Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky – Together We’re Stronger - The world of Dusk is dying, but that doesn't mean that humanity has to lose hope completely. In fact, in the world's twilight days, it's of increasing importance that humanity pulls together and comes to understand one another. This is a core theme of Atelier Escha & Logy.
Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky – Stop Me If You’ve Heard This One - Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky has two playable protagonists, which would suggest you need to play the game twice to get the most out of it. Is it worth making that additional effort to see things unfold from a slightly different perspective? Let's investigate!
The Music of Atelier, Vol. 11: Atelier Escha & Logy – Alchemists of the Dusk Sky - As we bid farewell to one of the most well-regarded Atelier games, it's time once again to appreciate the fantastic work that Gust's sound team does in creating a distinctive atmosphere for each and every title in this series. The melancholy of Dusk just wouldn't be the same without it.
Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea – A Fresh Start - The Atelier series is one that has seen many reinventions and fresh starts over the years -- but Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea feels somewhat special in that regard. Could there be hope for the Dusk setting after all?
Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea – What a Girl Wants - In Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea, the Atelier series returns to a classic structure, alternating between clearly defined story missions and more open "free time" segments. But there's always something meaningful to achieve along the way.
Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea – The Art of Shalchemy - Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea mixes things up pretty thoroughly with its alchemy system -- no pun intended. Blending elements from past games with all-new elements, the mechanics might seem complex initially, but true alchemists never shy away from experimentation!
