A small mandrake root, a small crow feather. Throw them in the cauldron and see what they do.

Welcome to the world of alchemists! Experiment to discover the magic properties of your ingredients. Demonstrate your knowledge by selling potions. Use the money to buy artifacts that will allow you to continue your research. Publish, publish, publish! Earn grants. And expose the lies published by these fools who think they can be your rivals.
Alchemy is a game of strategy, risk assessment and deduction. Are you experimenting to gain more knowledge or are you publishing now to get more points? Pay to support the latest toad theory or save your money for an artifact? And should you really sell this portion to the great barbarian with an ax when you are not entirely sure of its effects? The choices you make will prove that you are the greatest alchemist in the world.
The game is designed to be played using an application that turns your tablet or smartphone into an ingredient card reader. The app is available for free.
