PlayStation 4 & 5 and Nintendo Switch owners craving a relaxing, upbeat RPG are in for a treat: Alchemic Cutie is hitting these consoles on June 16th! Previously released for Xbox One and Series X|S and PC via Steam, this cathartic RPG tasks players with raising and taming colorful jellies on a beautiful island.
I just spent the past few weeks wrapping up Elden Ring and Resident Evil 4, so the coziness of Alchemic Cutie might be right up my alley! RPGFan’s Alana Hagues reviewed the game and enjoyed its varied gameplay loop, impressive visuals and soundtrack, and diversity of jellies to raise and breed. She was less impressed by Alchemic Cutie‘s bugs and glitches, which developers Vakio and Viridian Software have worked to address since the game’s 2021 release.
Here’s an overview of Alchemic Cutie, courtesy of Steam:
Alchemic Cutie is a wholesome relaxing RPG set on colorful Wimba Island. While taming wild jellies, you’ll meet villagers, enter jelly competitions and uncover the secrets of the island.
Wimba Island is a huge place with plenty to do. From exploring secret locations to discovering new Jellies scattered all over the island. As the seasons change, so does the island with new areas, different Jellies and items appearing.
Enjoy an engaging Jelly raising system, where each Jelly has uniquely generated stats, traits and over 4000 visual styles. You will be able to tame, breed, and raise the perfect jelly companion and take it with you on adventures.
Befriend a village of goofy, fun, and sometimes complicated characters. Help them by completing quests or just hang out, mingle and get to know them. Who knows…maybe some might be hiding something…
