Set against a vibrant background reminiscent of a medieval European town the Atelier series’ 17th instalment follows the exploits of a young novice Alchemist who discovers she is the owner of an enigmatic volume imbued with a soul. This Mysterious Book seems to hold all the secrets to Alchemy knowledge and it goes on to become Sophie’s mentor. Sophie’s improving alchemy skills start bringing back forgotten memories and uncover the strange tale of the book’s origin. The development team at GUST consider this title ‘the new standard for the Atelier series’ as they have poured all their creativity in rebuilding the alchemy system from the ground up and in crafting a visually stunning world full of well-rounded characters and beautiful illustrations. In a series first, there are two key illustrators involved in the making of Atelier Sophie, NOCO and Yuugen. Their distinctive work makes the world come alive and creates a dynamic environment where time, weather, and relationships affect the adventures of the young new alchemist and her trusted allies!
Crafting stuff since 1997. Atelier was crafting even before it was cool, but does that make it an expert?
