Finally got to this game after having it in my “To Play” list for so long and boy am I glad! I loved VA-11 Hall-A and Coffee Talk so I knew coming in to this I was gonna like it but I wasn’t fully prepared for how charming and lovely this little game is!!! It’s definitely a worthwhile bite-sized experience ♥️

This game I can describe as "A witch gives and gets free therapy with rpg elements thrown in" 10/10 would recommend
I was in the discord server for the care package bundle for a while until this was released and it was a huge part of my life for a while, all of them are chock-full of charm but this is my absolute favorite. I played this game nonstop until it was over and it left me wanting more. I hope you make more games like this in the future, if you do, I'll be one of your best customers. I wish you the best in your future game development adventures. <3
Been going threw my old games I hadn't finished and ran into this tonight. An absolutely lovely game, super cute. Has given me some inspo for a D&D game I've been running <3 absolutely loved it all.
very cozy and comfy, a worthwhile experience :)
I really loved it! You should make more visual novels, Kultisti!
DOES work on Steam Deck, ONLY if you edit the launch options to "Force the use of a specific Compatability tool" and set it to "Proton: Experimental."
I played this on stream yesterday and we all thought it was super cute!
Very comfy game, with sweet dialogues and unique creatures <3
This is such a sweet game :3
People are so creative. Sure, there's a few typos and grammar mistakes, low brightness, music that's a little too soft, and dialogue options you can't select with your arrow keys (you have to click on them), but that doesn't matter a whole lot. They're gripes, but minor ones. It's the art style, the writing, the character names (yes, names), and cozy care + vibe the Lonely People Potion shop oozes (both the game and the location in-game) that make this a very easy sell.
Thank you for this experience. I first didn´t expect such a nice story and I would like to dive deeper in this world about the potion witch, Aleria, Orb, Laura, Miia and all the other travellers who might visit the lonley people potion Shop. :D <3
Hi !, I'm a University Student from Arica, Chile (South America). Right now I'm working on my final project, which is, to translate any kind of game, novel, book, video, etc. This is my last year in this program ( https://admision.uta.cl/index.php/licenciatura-en-ingles/ you can read it if you want, I'm not a troll or something like that). So, I was wondering if I can translate your game as my final project translation (In Spanish, cause it's my native language). Obviously, because of the nature of my request and my position as a student, I'll do this translation totally free. Let me know if you want to work with me. My e-mail account is email@example.com. Have a good day! (or night, here's 23:00 pm)
Dialogue based and cute as a cat. recommended
This game is absolutely great! I love the calm, enchanting atmosphere the potion shop has - and the creatures are so full of life and character that I really felt like a part of everything going on. The story telling is lovely! I must agree that the amount of clicking to get through dialogue feels like a bit much, but it's important for the pacing of the conversation that occurs, because otherwise it doesn't come off in quite the same way. It's definitely worth the money, especially for a good cause.
I would LOVE a full length game of this concept, a more in-depth potion maker, Continuing to delve into these characters, etc. Thank you for the wonderful game!
i'm only halfway through the game right now, but i must say it's absolutely adorable! i love the characters so much, i love witch and aleria and all the little characters that come by and the art style and the potion mixing mechanic. super cute 10/10 !!!!!
edit: just got to the second day. i was expecting the game to end on the first day and i got so excited when it said 'day 2' !!!!
Really cute idea, but the amount of text scrolling/clicking and one-word (or simply ellipses or 'hehe') lines became too much for me and I couldn't finish.
I love and adore this game. It is my new favorite game in the world. Its perfect.
Thank you for this charming game very relaxing and congrats for having done it in one month, it's a great work ! pretty graphics, music, lovely gameplay, I loved the fight at the end and the bonus free mode is very fun !
What a charming game! The art works really well, and the writing has a rhythm like nothing I've seen before. It's not long or complicated, but it definitely doesn't have to be.
Doesn't launch on Macs with Apple silicon :(
This is so cute! All the characters are so charming and the atmosphere is so relaxing, I'm absolutely in love. I can see myself coming back to this the next time I need to calm myself down.
Lovely, charming little game! I really love Aleria and other characters too! Very cute and potions are so cool!
It was really sweet, perfect little game for these times <3 Potion witch and all her customers was charming - maybe there will be some sequel with them? :)
Super cute, finished it in one go (aroud 1.5 hours)! I loved all the different characters, very wholesome! Would recommend :)
I loved this game so much! The characters were all so different and the potion making was very fun! Thank you for making this ^^
Such a lovely game! Made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The merchant and his friend were my favourite, so cute and expressive!
That was great! Love the art style (Orb is absolutely adorable) and just how sweet the whole game was
gorgeous game^^love it <3 well done
Really awesome game!!:D
this is a really nice little game! thank you <3
Simple and Charming. Put on a relaxing Spotify playlist and finished it in one sitting. Feels a bit like managing a café. Absolutely Loved It!!
This game is simply beautiful, it filled me with warmth. I'm so glad I got the bundle so I could play this little gem.
Thank you so much! <3
Awesome game! Love the art style & the music a lot! The whole thing felt like a 1.5 hr escape from everything negative, leaving only warmth.
The title of the mac version says to use itch.io app, does anyone know the best place to find the app in question?
the epic games launcher has the itch app, i dont where else to get it but ik its on there.
I've only played a little so far, but just had to say something. This game is so cute and cozy! It just made my worries melt away for a while. I wish there was a potion shop like this I could visit IRL
Did you make the background music yourself?
Okay this was Incredibly Cute. Thank you. It made feels
