Let me explain, there's nothing wrong with mixing components in a UI and see what happens but at the end of the day, we as players don't feel that we are real alchemists. So a few weeks ago I decided to remake these mechanics and work in a more simulation [...]

Weekly Update Patch Notes – Alpha 2.1.15

Welcome to another weekly patch of Alchemy Garden!  This week's patch is focused on the ingame quality of life, I am aware that there are some frictions within the gameplay, so I am working to polish them as much as possible.

And finally, we will inaugurate a new micro-section called “Garden of the Week” where we will be showing screenshots of your gardens that you have uploaded to the community, either through the Steam community or the Discord channel [...]
