Budding alchemists, get ready to mark your calendar if you enjoy couch co-op and board games. Potion Party is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on April 8.
In Potion Party, you are the owner of an alchemy store. To keep your customers happy, you need to brew and sell colorful potions. With the money you earn, expand your shop and buy new tools, furniture and characters. But wait, parties are better with friends! So gather up to three other players and have an awesome night out with this crazy and chaotic board game.
Types of potions
Customers want different types of potions. Potions differ in size and color. Need a green potion? Just mix a yellow and a blue. Need a black? This requires you to prepare charcoal.
Build the shop
When you start your store, it will be empty and sold out. It is your task to add furniture, tools and decorations to the store. Step by step, your store will improve and provide more ways to craft various potions. Each new stage presents new elements to use and challenges to overcome.
When you’re not actively helping a client, use downtime to your advantage. Pre-produce potions and put them in your storage area. The next time a client needs one of these potions, you already have one on hand. You should also have candy ready to make customers happy who need to wait a bit longer. Especially when playing in co-op mode, managing your store’s storage area is an important task so that customers are served as quickly as possible.
Defend yourself against the monsters
Soon after opening your store, you will get unwanted visitors. Slimes, ghosts and thieves of different types will invade your store and try to shut down your business. Each of them must be treated differently to get rid of them. Don’t let them invade your store.
Play with different characters
You can unlock up to 12 different fantastic characters in the game. Each character has a unique special ability which makes them valuable for certain tasks. These abilities can also be upgraded to become stronger.
When playing together, it’s best to build a team that complements each other. Have Mary sell the potions to the customer as she earns additional tips. Grifryt is the best at brewing potions as he can brew them much faster than other characters. Zeph is a fast all-rounder that can zoom from A to B to help you in the store. Each character has roles that suit them best.
Play together or against each other
You can play the whole game on your own and unlock all the stages, all the items and create your store. However, you will have the most fun playing with others. Play with them in cooperative mode and divide the tasks in your shop to get more potions sold on time.
You can also compete with your friends in the unlockable versus mode. Two teams (one or two players each) will compete to become the potions masters. It’s all about brewing the right potion before the other team does. Only the first team to sell the potion to the customer will score a point.
Unlike other games, Potion Party focuses on simple controls. Everything is managed with a single action button. It makes the game super accessible. Just a button and an analog stick. Skill level shouldn’t stop anyone from making potion-making dreams come true.
RP and FusionPlay games
Potion Party is developed by RP Games, and ported and released to PlayStation by FusionPlay. Both are based in Leipzig, Germany. FusionPlay and RP Games worked closely together when designing and testing the game mechanics, balancing the game, and optimizing it for PlayStation. We hope you and your team have some great chemistry when Potion Party releases on PS5 and PS4 on April 8.
