Embark on a journey of light and darkness as Yui, a young girl thrown into extraordinary circumstances. Travel between timelines, braving the post-apocalyptic present in hopes of restoring the idyllic past. Bring down the Shadows who destroyed Yui’s home and stole the Sun from the sky by mastering the Everlight, a mystical force granting her strange powers.

Alternate between eras while traversing four islands on a mission to repair the arcane tower that holds within it the key to control the flow of time. Take the fight to the Shadows with the ability to launch energy bombs, freeze time, and more, before turning back the clock in search of secrets and clues. Restore the Sun to its rightful place and save Yui’s family from a dark fate.

Solve time-bending puzzles. Uncover hidden passageways in one reality to make progress in the other while battling against the sinister creatures who seek to halt Yui’s quest at every turn. Climb through dense forests, scour desert ruins, and brave the icy caverns, all brought to life with gorgeous retro-inspired pixel art that brings a vivid sense of atmosphere to the adventure.

Relish the serenity of a bygone era and feel the pain of a scarred and broken present represented by rich environments teeming with lore. Experience the sweeping highs and emotional lows of Yui’s story with dynamic music that swells during moments of triumph and intensifies at climactic showdowns against her shadowy foes. Guide Yui’s path to determine her fate – can she overcome the darkness to save both her world and her family?

PQube have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Potion Permit, an open-ended sim RPG developed by MassHive Media. It will be released in 2021 in Europe and North America.

Here’s a trailer, some details, the list of key features, and some screenshots for the game:

Moonbury’s residents need healing and you’re the best Chemist around! With your trusty tools, a brewing cauldron, and a canine companion at your side, you’ll need to diagnose symptoms, gather ingredients, brew potions, and cure ailments in this open-ended sim RPG.

  • Receive requests from residents – Moonbury has around 30 unique inhabitants who will occasionally fall ill and call for your aid. Sick residents will have their schedules interrupted while they recuperate at home in bed.
  • Diagnose symptoms to discover new ailments – Hmm… a low heart rate and a bloated liver. Dander Sneezer, perhaps? No, these are sure signs of Sticky Sweat. This patient has been consuming too much gelatin! Easily remedied; you’ll just need to craft some Jelly Remover.
  • Gather ingredients with your hammer, axe, and sickle – Once you’ve decided on a potion, ointment, or salve, you must gather the required ingredients from the surrounding environment. Watch out for changing weather conditions! Some areas are known to experience dense fog, droughts, or even strong blizzards.
  • Confront nasty monsters for their materials – Sometimes you won’t be able to gather the materials you need as easily as harvesting a berry bush, and you’ll need to turn your trusty tools into weapons to collect materials from the monsters prowling the nearby wilderness. Combat is in real-time and, since you’re a Chemist, you’ll be able to brew various concoctions to buff yourself or inflict status ailments on your adversaries as well as various tools to aid you.
  • Brew remedies in your cauldron – The ingredients you gather can be mixed in your cauldron to brew medicine, vitamins, and more. As you become more experienced, higher-level recipes will become available requiring more ingredients but bestowing stronger effects.
  • Build relationships with the townsfolk – It’ll take a little while, but your patients’ health will be much better thanks to your efforts. Your reputation with them will increase, and they’ll open up to you a little more. You may even find yourself growing particularly close to certain bachelors or bachelorettes.
  • Upgrade the town and surrounding areas – Building relationships with townsfolk increases your approval rating and at certain milestones, you’ll be able to improve the area by improving public buildings and expanding the explorable areas around the town. You may even be able to design your own home.
  • Spend time with a faithful companion – You didn’t relocate to Moonbury alone! With you every step of the way is your loyal dog companion. Your pet can help you locate hidden items, fight off aggressive monsters, and point you in the direction of residents as they go about their day.
  • Enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside – In the downtime between treating the community’s ailments, you’ll be able to freely explore in and around Moonbury. Get to know the inhabitants a little better, take a rest in the tavern with some dice games, or go fishing to catch something for dinner. Moonbury is a delightfully charming location where time seems a little slower and life is just a little more relaxed than the big city. While the lighting will change throughout the day, with the bright sun streaking across the meadows in the morning and street lamps illuminating the town in the early evening, there are no time limits for game objectives. Players are free to go at their own pace.

Potion Permit (Switch – eShop) comes out in 2021 in Europe and North America.
