Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk
The gameplay is divided into two core segments: Combat and Synthesis. Combat, like previous installments, is conducted in a turn-based manner. In this newest installment, players can now strategically position their characters to deal more damage or provide extra support to teammates. Super moves are also reintroduced, where characters unleash devastating attacks conducted through a cinematic. Synthesis, the other core half of the game, involves gathering supplies and using your alchemy to create items to be given to NPC's for quests, used in combat, or used for mana or health regeneration. Higher quality item yield higher quality results in terms of quest material, damage, and regeneration.
The game features a time management system, meaning the game must be completed in 3 years of in-game time. There shouldn't be an issue with completing it on time, but if not completed on time, you are given one of the 10 different possible endings.
