Summary

As another of period of dusk begins, in a region of the world where people are beginning to live humble lives once again… This land lacks the system of a governed nation, yet people live together, hand in hand. There, in an isolated workshop, lives a girl who makes a living by making medicine. This girl's name is Ayesha. She used to live with her grandfather and younger sister, but after her grandfather passed away a few years ago, her sister also went missing. Now she is only left with her pet cow, and her solitude.

There are some truly fantastic ideas that are here, but the whole thing feels like it should have spent much more time in the design phase. The game’s dearth of compelling content makes the experience a chore, and it’s hard to empathize with any of the characters in any meaningful way. Still, I have no doubt that hard core Atelier fans will dive-in headfirst.

Atelier Ayesha feels like a middling compromise between what fans want, and what the masses need. It doesn't do nearly enough wrong to alienate its loyal, niche fan-base, but as an RPG it's a lesser game than Rorona and Totori. Item synthesis continues to be a big draw, but many other elements have either been simplified or removed, resulting in a game that's admittedly less tedious, but also less challenging.

The Alchemist of Dusk is a competent game; its combat is solid, its alchemy system is fairly fluid and the art and soundtrack are charming. Unfortunately, the story, characters, graphics, alchemy limitations and returning time-constraints make Ayesha a title that’s hard to fully endorse.
