Alchemia is a point and click adventure in which the hero arrives in "an underground city full of strange things" and must help his friend find a new body.

There's no knowing what the gameplay will be like as of yet, but the screenshots posted on the official site look quite beautiful. Springtail promise that the game will feature "many complicated puzzles and riddles" so I guess we can expect it to be quite difficult.

The setup of the game sounds quite strange. Set in two parts, creator Tomas explains:

"The first [part] will be available online for free, second part will be available to download for a symbolic payment"

In other words, they hope players will enjoy the first part so much that they will be dying to part with their cash to continue on into the second part. We shall see if it works out for them when the game is released in the next few months.
