About This Game

Early Access - In Development


Do not buy if you want to buy an finished game! Only buy if you are genuinely interested in this game despite it being unfinished! As is it is a playable game, and if you like puzzle games you can still enjoy it in its current state for many hours, but absolutely know it is not a finished game.

FaeVerse Alchemy is unfinished and still in development. It is going through many large iterations over time!

No feature is complete until the game leaves Early Access. While in an unfinished state many things in the game may look ugly or be functionally unfinished.
You are buying as is. Though we continue to development the game we cannot promise any future updates. Do not take this statement as proof we have "abandoned" this game ever. We are endeavoring to make sure the final version of this game is as good as possible.

The list of playable and planned features will be updated over time as things change. Since first being put onto Early Access a majority of the game has been decided to be changed based on iteration and player feedback. Due to this, development has been longer. Many features have evolved into better versions which are more enjoyable. Understand this when you buy that currently we intend to not rush out something passable but instead to take the time and effort necessary for the final product to be as high quality as possible.

If you do not want to play a not fully polished game then please wait to play until after full release. There are many reviews suggesting you should wait and as devs we completely agree. This game is unfinished. Wait until we finish it.


Features Playable Now:
  • Chaos Mode
  • Crafting
  • Items

Planned Features Not Yet Active:
  • Adventure Mode
  • Puzzle Mode
  • Free Play Mode
  • Challenge Mode
  • Endless Mode
  • Versus Mode
  • RunePets
  • Pet Battles
  • Achievements
  • Leaderboards

We have plans to localize for these languages as priority with more after these are done:

  • English
  • French
  • German
  • Japanese

If you love FaeVerse Alchemy, and want to help localize the game then please contact us.

We really need more Linux testers.

We want to hear from you in the game's community. Tell us what you like, what you don't like, and what you think would make the game better. We want to make this the very best puzzle game of its kind, and we need your help, feedback, and support to do so. While in early access in development stage, we will be, in best circumstances, releasing updates frequently.



New to FaeVerse Alchemy? Here is a quick primer on how to play. Please read this at least!

  • Combine like elements to create higher tier elements.
  • The score of the board is based on the combined value of all pieces on the board at any given time. This means it is possible to temporarily lose some points if you combine large amounts of elements together at once.
  • Late game board space can be more valuable than points alone.

Buy once, and get for Windows, Mac, and Linux!

Simply put: this game is not for everyone!
FaeVerse Alchemy is made for puzzle game lovers only.

Who is FaeVerse Alchemy for? You will love FaeVerse Alchemy if you love:
  • Relaxing games you can play at your own pace.
  • Puzzle games in general. FVA is a puzzle game at its heart which plays based complex interactions.
  • Match-3 games. Although FVA may look like a general match-3, it is far more advanced, but still should be enjoyable to those who enjoy the genre.
  • Easy to learn but difficult to master games. It is easy to underestimate the level of mastery required to really play the game. Though the basics are easy to grasp, it is like chess in that to really play well, you must think multiple steps ahead.
  • Pet games. FVA allows you to collect, hatch, train, evolve, battle, and benefit from your active pets in the core game.


In Chaos Mode, you are at the mercy of chaos and the complex interactions it brings. The game picks a random location, allows all large sizes of pieces to drop, and allows all items a chance to drop at any time. Get exclusive achievements, and experience some items which may be rarer in normal play.



Find rare materials and craft them into items such as rings of power. Use rings to change the core gameplay in interesting ways.

Early Access Review
FaeVerse Alchemy is a unique and challenging puzzle game and its dark, mysterious environment made it interesting and enjoyable.

The atmosphere, including the sounds and artwork, is pretty and engaging and the gameplay is entertaining to a certain extent. Not much can be said for the replayability though, simply due to the fact that there are *currently* only two game modes available for play and the levels get repetitive pretty fast. This is an early access game so it's only fair to give some leeway as it is still in development.

But it's price of $29.99 is beyond ridiculous. The only reason I even considered trying it out was because I received a coupon for 90% off. Honestly, I was just curious to find out if it would surprise me with some astounding attribute or aspect that made it worth this much money. After spending a few hours playing, which I did enjoy despite my ranting on the price, I can't say that I found anything truly incredible enough to justify this price.

In conclusion, FaeVerse Alchemy was worth the few bucks that I spent on it thanks to my coupon. So if you can get your hands on one and would like to participate in the development of this game, I'd say go for it. But I wouldn't recommend it otherwise as there are many other complete puzzle games out there that will offer much more replayability.

Early Access Review
An good,but overly expensive game.
This game has many good flaws,and i agree the game itself is good,but the price(unless you got a coupcon)is overly awful for those types of games. If dev makes enough content to sastify us/reduces to more accepctable price,i will possibly update it.
Edit: The price got reduced,but it still unfinished and lacks features from being a *true* release. Those inculde: Controller support,new features and such. Ethier way,atleast it feels better now. It will stay negative until final descision/full release/better update is made.

Early Access Review
FaeVerse Alchemy is most certainly a very interesting game. It is developed and published by Subsoap, the same company that made Faerie Solitaire, which is a bit more known than this game. I was lucky enough to obtain a free copy of FaeVerse Alchemy and since then, I invested enough time in it to make a fair review. Be aware that I have also played this game in offline mode, so my Steam timer is not correct.
Note: The game is in still early access. This review will be updated as more features are built into the game.

Pros:
  • Linux, SteamOS and Mac OS support
  • Steam Achievements, Trading Cards, Steam Leaderboards
  • Surprisingly low system requirements
  • Great dark-ish graphics with good looking element symbols
  • Calm music brings a nice, kind mysterious atmosphere
  • A lot of game modes (most of them are yet to be implemented, see cons)
  • A simple-to-understand game technique, which gets really really hard as the game progresses, but don't worry about it.
  • It's addictive!
  • This game is being actively developed and there are pretty big updates coming out a few times a month.
  • Surprisingly good options menu, it includes everything an advanced user could wish for.

Cons:
  • The price tag of $30 is RIDICULOUS. (although I've heard that the price will be lowered at some point) This game is just not offering enough to be worth it. At least not yet.
    The price was lowered by 50%. Still not sure if it's worth it, but it is certainly a very good move by the developer.
  • Even though the menu is lliterally filled with all the possible options and game modes, most of them are grayed out – not available to play yet.

The final verdict:
This game is great, but (if all the promises and game modes are completed) it will get much better. In the current state, it is not worth buying for the whole price. If it gets any lower or when a bit more content is added, this is the game you want to spend money on.

Greetings,
Birdy

Early Access Review
Great atmospheric tetris-alike game what evolve base idea with elements transformation chain, many game modes - contemplative to competitive.

Even the name of the game shows how deeply and developers approach to every aspect of their brainchild.

No surprice hence, artwork, sounds are naturally woven into the overall concept, so does not detract you from the main process, but caressing glance and mellifluous.

Developers of FaeVerse Alchemy took up the implementation of the project with a grand scale. I hope they have the strength and perseverance to develop the project and lead it in the later stages of development and hone all the details.

PS:
as for the price, you can think of a number of games, expect more support at a significantly lower quality.
