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 – 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... 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! Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea – The Fight for a Dying World - Like many other aspects of its mechanics and structure, the combat and exploration mechanics in Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea combine an acknowledgement of past systems that worked well with some all-new twists. The result is a mechanically solid and enormously satisfying installment in the series. Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea – The Kindness of Strangers - Shallistera, one of Atelier Shallie's two protagonists, finds herself having to rely on the kindness of strangers to solve her quest. But, in exchange, she discovers that as a stranger in a strange land, she'll need to show her own brand of kindness in return, too. A world in peril is a world of give and take. Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea – A Socratic Paradox - "The only thing that I know is that I know nothing". A useful starting point for any alchemist to begin understanding the world around them -- but will Shallistera and Shallotte truly be able to make a difference just through developing their knowledge?
