“Atelier Sophie” will become the new standard for the Atelier series.
Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book is 17th in the Atelier series role-playing game made by KOEI TECMO GAMES. The alchemist Sophie lives alone on the outskirts of the town of Kirchen Bell. She has a cheerful personality, and gets along well with her childhood friends, but she simply can’t improve her fundamental alchemy skills. One day, to fulfill her childhood friend Monika’s request, she finds a book with some medicine recipes in it… In this game, Sophie’s goal will be to use the power of alchemy to restore Plachta’s memories, which she has lost nearly all of. Making good use of alchemy and writing new recipes into Plachta will gradually bring back her memories, and memories of alchemy itself. When Plachta remembers that she was once human, Sophie will have a new major goal to face. That goal will be to make Plachta human again. Merely a novice alchemist, this is the true beginning of Sophie’s story.

Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book Review
Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book is a breath of fresh air in the genre of JRPG. This game features a mundane story but in a fantasy world where the dreams of the characters are more important than the plot. Each new title offers a substantive change to the core mechanics, so vets will encounter something new. In a small town of Kirchen Bell, you play as the novice alchemist, Sophie Neuenmuller. Known for her sloppy and clumsy work, she hopes to become a legendary alchemist just like her grandma. The Atelier series does not have a particularly engaging battle system or story. Instead, the series relies heavily on self motivation, similar to how you would in an sandbox RPG. While there is a linearity to it, Sophie has a pseudo-sandbox in that you are free to do whatever you want whenever you want so long as you follow Plachta's ingredients. Atelier Sophie is a wonderful game, and if you’re a new player, it’s a great way to get yourself hooked on the rest of the franchise.
