Alchemia is the beautifully strange tale of a man on a quest to replace the robotic body of a rather odd being. It plays out as a point-and-click style affair in a gorgeously detailed world.

I was initially put off by the very first puzzle, but I'm glad I stuck at it, as there are some lovely sights on show here, and the rest of the puzzles aren't too shabby either. Lasting around half an hour, the fantasy locations are bound to be compared to Amanita Design's Samorost (as they were back in April). There will apparently be a second part, but this will not be free and Springtail hope those who liked this part will want to come back for more.

Definitely worth a playthrough - if you get stuck, there's a handy walkthrough too. Play it over at Alchemiagame.com.
