What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Alchemist's Awakening has been in development for more than 18 months. The core engine is now ready and it's time to involve you, the players, to make this game exactly what you expect.
This game has some really unique features such as the ability to give life to what you build, and we would like to see how players use this to make it even better.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This game will be in Early Access for about one year, and will continue to receive major content releases long after that.
One year is the time it will take us to develop the Story Mode, which doesn't exists right now, the game is still only a sandbox with Survival, Creative and Multiplayer modes.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“During development we will be constantly adding:
  • Attacks
  • Creatures
  • Biomes
  • Building blocks

Furthermore, we are developing the single-player Story Mode, which will be an important part of the final game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Even if we are still early in development, the game is stable and performs well both in single-player and multi-player modes.
We will be releasing a major update at least once a month with new content and new gameplay features.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to slightly increase the price when the single-player Story Mode is added.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We have set up a forum (http://www.alchemistsawakening.com/forum) where you can discuss what you like and don't like in the game. You can also reach us on Twitter and follow our dev blog.”

0.95b - Invite your Steam friends

Hello,

A new update was released today, and it is now possible to send Steam invites to your friend to let them join your world easier than before.



At anytime while in game, simply use the "Invite friends" menu and your friend will receive an invite.

Using this feature requires a good internet connection speed because you host the game for your friend and your world needs to be streamed to him.

This update also fix a lot of bugs in multiplayer servers. Because a lot of internal changes have been made, it might also create new bugs, if so please report them!

Thanks again for your support!

Regards,
Marc

0.95 - Pipes, Electric Systems, TNT and more

Hello,

A new update was released today, introducing a lot of new blocks!



Pipes

Pipes are used to transfer some elements from a source device, such as a windmill, to a receiver such as a chest.

3 type of pipes can be crafted:
- Fire pipes, using Metal and Fire
- Wind pipes, using Metal and Wind
- Electricity pipes, using Metal and Electricity

You can use them on ovens, windmills, thunder rods, chests and some other items.



Valves and Switches

Valves can be put on Fire and Wind pipes to close the pipe. They can be activated by an electrical signal coming from an Electricity Pipe.

Switches can be put on Electricity pipes to close the pipe.

Buttons and Pressure Plates

Buttons and pressure plates can be connected to Electricity Pipes and will produce some electrical impulses when used.

Craft them using electricity + metal.



Electrical circuits

You can use the 'And' pipe, 'Xor pipe' and 'Switch' pipe to get a signal only if some conditions are met.
Craft them using crystal + electricity + metal.

TNT

TNT is an exploding block which will break surroundings blocks when activated, by hand or by an Electricity Pipe.



Electric Lamp

This new lamp must be powered by an Electricity Pipe.
Craft it using Fire, Sand, Electricity and Metal.

Fireball Launcher

The Fireball Launcher must be fueled using Fire Pipes and Wind Pipes, then activated using Electricity Pipes, to attack nearby mobs.


More new blocks using the new pipe system will come soon!

Thanks again for your support.

Regards,
Marc

About This Game

PLEASE NOTE: This is an Early Access: the Survival, Creative and Multiplayer modes can already be played but the story mode will only come in the final game.

In Alchemist's Awakening, you are a young alchemist who is still discovering how much power he has.
There are 9 primary elements, which can be mixed together and recombined into blocks of different shapes, or used as attacks against enemies.

Explore


Explore an infinite and procedurally generated open-world, use the Wind element to fly from a desert island to an iceberg, discover ruins of ancient builds deep in the forest, find rare resources and settle down somewhere to shape your own world as everything you see is made of small building blocks. Each block is unique: every stone block is different yet perfectly shaped to fit the place put it in, every leaf, every piece of wood is unique.

Build


As an Alchemist, you can recombine the 9 primary elements into other shapes and materials. Then you can place blocks anywhere in the world and build anything you can think of.
Build machines to help you collect elements: for example, create a big wind turbine to collect the Wind element.

Creative Mode


If you like building more than everything, the Creative mode is made for you, with tools that let you build even faster.
Use powerful tools to terraform your own world, and then share your creations on the Steam Workshop or create a server.
The Creative mode will also let you create a real adventure map: in a coming update you will even be able write your own quests, script your own special blocks with true gameplay changes.

Combat


Every element can be used as a weapon: launch fireballs, create a strong wind that repulse enemies, or instantly create a sword in your hand. Your attacks will get even more powerful when you combine several elements.
Fight againt the monsters you encounter in the world such as wolves and thiefs, and fight against other players in the multiplayer mode.

Give life to Creatures


When you build something with a human shape, you can give life to it and it will start to move and animate.
Command it to follow you, guard your base or mine resources for you.
Depending on its shape and the type of block you used to build it, it will have different strengths and weaknesses.

In the Creative mode, it will be possible soon to teach them dialogs and give them a part in the quests you are writing.

Play with friends


Alchemist's Awakening comes with an online mode: you can connect to servers, share skins and buildings which you made for your friends, create your own server, and try different game modes that will be available online.
Creating a server is very easy, and you can add your own special blocks, creatures and machines to make it really unique. You can also invite up to 4 friends to your world.
