What the developers have to say:

“Please read the Early Access - In Development details below to see what is and what is not in the game at this time. As this game is still in development, not all features are complete or polished, but they are included. If you do not want to play a game which is not finished, then do not buy this game! If you are unsure if this game is for you, then please try the demo on our site first. If you want to help us finalize the game then please buy it, play it, and give us your feedback in the community forum. Specifically, we are looking for help with finding any platform bugs (Windows, Linux, Mac), balancing the game, localizing the game (paid professionals only), and polishing the game for final release. Our current release plan is to put things out in chunks, get feedback, and iterate until FVA is solid.

Please understand that any and all features could change in ways which you do not like - they could even be removed if there is a good reason for us to do so. We intend to fully include all listed features which are listed on this page, but for whatever reason we may have to cut some at time of final release. Sometimes subtractions create a better whole. We may add more features which are not listed at all. Some of this is up to feedback from you. Tell us what you like and what you think would make the game better in or community forum. Ultimately we are not only making this game for our own enjoyment, but for yours as well, and we need to hear from you to be able to fulfill making a better game for you.

It is important to note is that before final release we may do save wipes for balancing reasons. Do not get too heavily invested until we give the all clear that we won't be doing any (or more) wipes.”

"This is addicting in the way old school Dr. Mario was. Its charming and well made. A good one to play when the ping is too high for a game of Dota. "

Recent updates View all (15)

October 10


We've updated FVA to latest public version. Windows build is available, Mac, Linux later today possibly tomorrow. Note that only Windows has Steam achievements enabled still. Others will be enabled when we can focus on them.

We've been working on more features and content, but we're not making it public yet. I wish we could show more now but most is just not polished enough yet or features we're still experimenting with. But we wanted to put something new up as it's been a while.

- 10 new locations in explore mode. Not final art.
- 1 new zone in explode mode. Over time we'll expand out the map, and add more worlds/ zones.
- Pure Mode is now available - it plays like the original Faerie Alchemy without any item drops at all.
- Screen shake added - you can disable it in options

Locations have goals. We have not added the English text for it but most are obvious. BoardItemCount# means you need so many items of rank # on the board at once. You do not need to reach the score threshold to finish goals.

Do not worry about suggesting features / polish for explore related content for now unless you find a crashing bug. Some of the assets in now are older and will be replaced. Most likely next update we will be ready for feedback on explore content and features.

For now, you can go to the World button on the Nexus screen to access [Vanguard Reach] Hearthvhan, Lostria. Later on there will be an inbetween screen in which you go to different worlds, such as Gaea or Lunaeris, and the different lore campaigns/zone regions of each world.

Lostria is a world cursed, taken by the darkness of the abyss, touched by chaos, and blighted by the evil, unspeakable spawns birthed by Mogmarrow's meddling with the verse. A land betrayed by its once savior, with its people swallowed whole. Their dreams, loves, glory, family, and peace all forever lost.

There are those who would see this world taken back, some who came from those who fled when the world was originally lost, and want their homelands back. You will help them cleanse the lands, and unlock the secrets buried below the dark hazes.

Right now this is not enabled, but later there will be stages to locations where they begin as "abyss" and can be cleansed to become normal again. As you clear up more locations, other zones open. NPCs can be unlocked, saved, summoned, who have things to say, and things they want done. There are faeries to free too. Plush fishing and pet battling.

Other worlds/zones have other kinds of meta mechanics planned for their Explore mode versions.

Here is our rough todo for immediate future:

1. We're going to focus on getting the long awaited Faerie Solitaire Remastered up as a free optional launch option for all current owners, and we may publish one or more side projects on mobile and maybe on Steam too as free games. We've been working on the main projects for years and the side projects keep us almost sane.
2. After Faerie Solitaire Remastered is done w'ere focusing back on FVA and we'll begin to do major named updates back to back unlocking long in progress content. A great deal of this work directly contributes to getting FVS ready. Once we get FVA to a truly full game state we will publish it out of Early Access, but that won't be the end to development - I want to update it long term.
3. After FVA is gold we'll focus on finally getting FaeVerse Solitaire all polished up and ready to ship too. FVS will also be updated long term.

NO RELEASE DATES. But 2015 is almost over and it getting nearly over makes me super anxious! This year has been a blur of work! Going back to it!

Early Access Review
The game is over a year (almost a year and a half) in early access and while it gets an update here and there, as it is it certainly isn't worth 15$. I was really looking forward to see what they'll add when I started playing it, but since then only minimal progress has been made. The presentation is nice and with looking at the community section you can actually figure out what to do, but it's really a raw gem at best right now. Adding more specials into the game instead of getting the basic tutorial and story bits together might be the wrong approach,

I really hope that the game will be finished, but for now I can not recommend it.

Early Access Review
I'm quite enjoying the game but the amount of content this game has right now is surely not worth 15$ and since the game was release a year and half ago i think there should be a lot more content and basic things like a tutorial or some tips here and there, also the items are a bit confusing sometimes and there's no explanation in-game of what each item does, you either see a guide somewhere or try and find out for yourself. Either way i'll still be playing FaeVerse and i hope they can finish it someday but as of now i just can't recommend it for the full price.

Early Access Review
FaeVerse Alchemy is an interesting idea, but it is no where near completed.

As fun as it's been, it's just not worth $15 at the moment. Personally I got the game for free from a friend, so I'm not salty about the price, but there is no way I could recommend buying it at full price.

Further, there is no tutorial mode, nothing is explained, there are no hover tips. It's just confusing. There are strange icons and puzzle pieces with no explantion to what the powerups do, etc.

Its long term status in Early Access is rather distressing as there have been no updates as long as I've owned the game.

In any case, I realize this review is not that thorough, but I needed to leave a review as I've "finished" the game, and can't honestly say people should pay $15 for it. Currently it's maybe worth about $5. As the developers say, this game is not finished and you should be willing to play it in its unfinished state.

With that in mind, you should not be paying a finished price for an unfinished game.

Early Access Review
I can't believe this arrogant developer actually thought his game was worth 30 bucks. I got it for 75% off during the sale, and I still feel like I paid too much. It's barely adequate for a match-three game -- not nearly as innovative (or even interesting) as he seems to believe. Oh, well. At least I didn't pay full price. I know it's early access and all, but even with more features, the core of the game will still be mediocre at best. The interface is weak, too -- working with your inventory is far more fiddly than it needed to be. And the inventory items themselves are a great example of brute-force game design with zero finesse. He clearly just invoked every possible interaction he could think of and made only the most minimal, ham-fisted effort to tie them in thematically. Overall, quite an amateurish attempt. Cannot recommend to anyone. Get Puzzle Quest instead. If you already have PQ, play it again -- even the 2nd or 3rd time around, it will still be more rewarding than this silly mess.
