The Alchemist is a game about a young man who is trying to follow in his late fathers footsteps to become a master Alchemist. So he left his home with only a map, his inheritance and some stories to guide him on his journey. Wilder Village was his destination, often told of as an idyllic village that borders the Great Wilderness.
Now after months of travel the protagonist has finally found the village and the Great Wilderness that it borders. Upon arrival the protagonist can tell the town has grown since his father was here. But despite it's growth the protagonist can tell there is something missing, the village is quiet, far quieter than he was expecting.
The Alchemist game is set within a fantasy world we have created called 'Ethermerial', for the past few years we have been creating plans, stories and information about this huge fantasy world, the kingdoms within it and the laws of magic and other phenomena that exist within it to ensure that the Wilder Village and surrounding area the game is set within feels alive and part of a much larger and interesting world.
The village houses a selection of locations you can visit and people you can meet and work with whilst exploring the wilderness that borders the village. You can also build relationships with them, help them out with a few things and even have a romance, or maybe just have some casual dates if you prefer.
Just outside the village is the entryway to the Wilderness an area considered wild and mostly unexplored, filled with creatures of legend, beasts and most importantly reagents. The items you find will allow you to craft new potions to sell in your shop and increase your wealth and experience to become a new master Alchemist.
