Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness and the Secret Hideout

With the Atelier series being one that spans more than 20 main releases and 15 spin-offs over the course of 24 years, many might have trouble finding an adequate point of entry. However, Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness and the Secret Hideout is a recent entry that streamlines the experience for old and new fans alike. In this JRPG series, alchemy is the main gameplay mechanic, pushing the narrative aside from the transmuting traditional role-playing systems of JRPGs. Ryza synthesizes a well-crafted game through a light-hearted but emotionally engaging story, a saccharine cast of characters, graspable crafting mechanics, and whimsical music.
