      Nah, the dating sim is only like 10% of it. Think of it similar to persona where you do little "events" with people after getting their affection to a certain point. Then when that happens they give you bonuses like new cards or permanent buffs like discounts for their services.

    There should have been a hard limit of 1 NPC interaction + 1 gift per day, or at least make it so time skips when you do either of those actions
    As it is, I craft 1 potion time skip and then have to talk to every NPC, gift them and do their daily chores

        It's bad all around. It's not even a shop/crafting game. You run a clinic, occasionally healing the villagers.
        You spend whole day every day running around the city to increase rep with 20 npcs to get their quests, which usually require crafting reagents or quest potions. You get them in special zones where reagents respawn every day in the same places. After doing enough quests, you unlock new zone and get a new slew of quests to gather more reagents from it.
        And as I said before this all feels like a thing to ensure common village folk that big city pharma is good guys, doing everything to help them. and they shouldn't fear the potions made by chemist player.

      Potion Permit plays like a Kickstarter game that failed to meet any of it backer goals. If you played the demo that's essentially all the game is to the very end. Even the "dating" portion of it is bare bones. Basically you go outside, check to see if you have any patients, play a mini game to cure them, go to the woods, grind for materials, come back, throw whatever gift you want at whatever NPC you want to fuck, go to bed. Now repeat that for the next three levels you unlock, and that's essentially the game.

    Only just got to day 15, but it feels like this game has some serious balancing issues.

    Unlocking new cards increasing relationships while there is just not enough time to efficiently do the relationship increasing thing really kill the deck building aspect. Doesn't help there's a hard limit on how many cards/turns you can afford to waste while there are too many cards with Opener effects. Ordering heroes to adventure to get you items not only cost a fuck ton, you also have to waste a lot of potions to help them gather any sort of somewhat useful amount of materials, and the MP bar is essentially just another HP bar so you'll have to waste at least 2 kind of potions per run. Rewards for fulfilling orders are half of what you'd get from selling normally, its only advantage is you not wasting a time slot but that's fucking retarded.

    • 2 months ago

      On Day 38 and I can agree with most of this.

      The game really feels like it's built around the following structure
      >start the week by making health / mana potions
      >send adventurers as far as humanely possible (especially in zones that have bonuses)
      >take all items and immediately donate them to Quinn
      >spend most money on buying stuff from Quinn (especially when on sale)
      >buy any other materials from Baptiste
      >craft whatever potions give best value
      >repeat above
      >focus on making competition potions
      >only sell potions during specific high value days (it's okay to go a whole day selling nothing)

      I was always just sending on adventures and it was kind of fucking me over. I think this is what a lot of people are doing as most people are saying the same issues as you are about the game feeling really imbalanced. I don't think the game is too hard, I just think it really wants you to play one specific way which sucks for a game with what appears on the surface to be some variety of what you're able to do.

    • 2 months ago

      The game gets proportionally easier the longer you play the game since you unlock bigger cauldrons to make more potions per brew.
      Mint is pretty shit as an adventurer since she has a tiny mana bar so you have to spend a mana potion her, once you unlock the second hero, you pretty much don't want to use Mint over her.

      Make sure to use the marketing campaign to boost certain potion prices since it could potentially double or triple your profits. At the start of the day, check the marketing girl and pick a marketing campaign that boost certain potion sales, hoard all the ingredients you need to craft said potions, and spend the whole day crafting a bunch of them to sell for tomorrow and make crazy profits the next day, repeat again for the next day.

    I'm enjoying the game. Still on my 1st week. It's definitely a bit strict on its time management combined with you having to make mistakes just to see how all the systems work out but I've been doing fine so far and I enjoy the difficulty at least at this point.
    I thought I was going to have a bad time setting up the potions for whatever this competition is but I've got 2/3 set up thanks to materials from the investing mechanic.
    The game could use some sort of codex to keep track of everything like what gifts characters like or what the stats are on all the materials you've found/where they're obtained.
    It's also annoying that I can't refer to the custom orders and what I'm currently brewing when I'm traveling in the city.

        Another thing about the brewing sorting is that you can only filter for ingredients that have A AND B but you can't filter ingredients that have A OR B which would have helped a lot. Maybe it doesn't matter later in the game.

          As someone almost through day 40, it still matters. The brewing could use a lot of help.
          I'd love to be able to "save" recipes because fumbling through all my ingredients is something I'm still doing. I just want to be able to do like quick crafts once you know how to make something but I need to fuck around with the magimins every single time.

    • 2 months ago

      I read that as slimes eat fruit. So when you adventure and get fruit, you're getting them from killing a slime and the slime dropping the fruit.
      Therefore if slime populations are low, fruit isn't being eaten by them, therefore it's spoiling and that's causing price to go up.
      I guess adventurers in this game are braindead meatheads who can only kill monsters and don't know how to just pick some fruit off a tree.

        After week three, I haven't had to worry at all about money. The difficulty curve really seems to drop off after the first week or so.
        There are just so many percentage bonuses you get access to that potions start selling for insane amounts.
        I should probably buy some display shelves.

          How do you make potions that don't suck. Asking for a friend.

          • 2 months ago
            Anonymous

            It's less about making potions that don't suck and using the game's systems to just jack up their prices. Taking advantage of daily events, always keeping up to date cauldrons / shelves, utilizing Luna / Roxanne for buffs that match up with what types of potions you have / negating debuffs they may have.
            The best advice I can give is you don't have to immediately sell a potion. You can spend a couple days either waiting for buffs or preparing buffs to maximize value of them.

    My main problem with it is the competitionss, feels like all the extra money I make is pointless since the only real goal is making hyper potions.

    Also some questions.
    1: what do display cases do again? How exactly does that mechanic work do I just want my best potions there or does it have more depth then that
    2: are the guild expeditions supposed to trivialize the game or what?

        There are a lot of text bugs as it pertains to menus, it's kind of weird. You'll notice in

        Mostly Roxanne cards with some from Xidriel.

        that it says Roxanne is a "Bardic Hero" when that's only because I went into Xidriel's menu first.
        I've also noticed other text get swapped like the description describing another character entirely.

        Depends on how many shelves you have. I have three shelves now (9 total potions) and I usually only sell about 4-5

      • 2 months ago
        Anonymous

        I accidentally opened my shop to sell some potions when the shelves got reset after the tournament (so the display shelves are empty), and I only had 2 customers come into my shop when I filled 6 potions on my shelves to sell. So they do matter, also upgraded shelves boost the prices of the potions displayed on those shelves.

              Don't get me wrong, I'm the anon you're replying to. The only reason I'm disappointed is because I wanted more of the game. I'm mostly just sad that it's over and has pretty minimal replay value outside building out relationships I didn't do to mess around with cards I didn't use in my first playthrough.

        The issue is the custom requests requiring specific traits. It seemed to me to be more lucrative to just spam potions as high quality as you possibly can than try to fuck around with traits for less money for requests.

            I think just have them request a potion and then have specific trait modifiers function as big bonuses. So if they request it smells good or whatever and you're able to do it, you get like 40% more gold but if you don't have that then it should still allow you to turn it in.

      I use the owl and the twink to draw my entire deck in 2 turns basically

      The point is to get all the +% to cost of potion, sympathy buff, and slight of hand to remove my 5 potion debuffs all in one turn so i never take stress damage, not deal with stacking time lose, and maximize sympathy buff returns.

      Even if you only get like half way through someones gauge you still stack up like 90% gains

                why are you so addicted to turn one. as long as you can max every sale the turn number doesn;t mater

                because then I don't need to have anti stress cards in my deck at all, and it makes room for cards that give flat % bonus and draw cards and you maximize buffs.

                as long as you max every sale that is the only thing that mater, by having 1-2 cards to deal with stress you can keep everything going for longer and get max hearts every time

                that's not actually true, since the % increase is capped at what the dudes maxed happiness is. For gloomy customers is very low for happy it can be high.

                To get higher % values BEYOND that, you have to exploit cards that give flat % bonus like charm.

                And thats just for starters, you can jack up the BASE price of your potions by using ingredients that have high nutrients in exchange for negative modifiers, then clearing the negative modifiers by using slight of hand and exploding your profits.

                none of this truly matters since me ending the game with 100000000000000 more gold then you wont change anything since all you actually have to do is win the competitions.

                Yeah that was my biggest issue after the 3rd boss. I started accumulated so much wealth but there wasn't really anything to do with it. And you aren't rewarded for doing that well anyway because all your debt is paid off solely through the competitions. It's not like you can play super well and pay it off early.

                Yeah. Competitions should have served as a last ditch way to make your payments, or maybe get some really good ingredients, but overall it should have just hinged on your ability to be a good salesman as well as a chemist. Just have Sylvia have a weekly payment she needs to make and let us as players figure out how best to achieve it.

    I was told I didn't have to romance anyone, she's just a bi slut into everyone? I don't like how every third character is "San Francisco black" which is to say they have dark skin but have exaggerated features which make them fake black like blue eyes or straight hair, or ridiculous rainbow colored hair. I hate the little animations for the characters, the smirks and shit, a lot of the dialog I see, it just looks like woke shit.

    And this is official art they released to "celebrate pride month". Fuck this.

      Gardening doubles ingredients you put in there. So even if you feed it nothing, you'll get get at least two of what you put in for free. I just put in the mana ores and let it run.

      Slap in a high end Ore, then fill the slime with cheap stomach-ache squids and get tons of stuff.

    Do you get more points for giving a more expensive/gold item gift give more interest points, or is it all the same as long as it's the category they like?

      The more magimins, the happier they are apparently. So give them the most expensive in the category they like, or just farm Pure Mana.

      The game says the more magimins the gift have the more points you get, but I think it's more important if you gift rarer materials? I gave rare flowers to the guild leader that I got from the first adventure areas and I got him to rank 10 before the 1st tournament, while I've been giving gifts to Quinn and I'm still not close to getting him to rank 10 and I'm currently on the 3rd tournament. Unless he's just way easier to please than Quinn.

        Maybe it's a mix of both. The Guild Leader's favorite gift are flowers, so it might be the combo of magimins and gift type.

          seriously though it'd be literally ten minutes of code to sort by magimin type, then by magimin quantity, i have no idea why they thought FIFO was the best way to represent that shit

      There was literally a patch earlier today that nerfed all the bosses.

      Well, I have to say that was a fucking huge disappointment.

      After beating the game, you get credits, get a "thanks for playing" and then you just get dumped back into the title screen. Loaded the last save and it was just the morning of the last boss fight.

      Looks like there's nothing that happens after beating the game.

      Looks like they just put out a new patch too.
