Potion Permit, an open-ended sim RPG, from PQube and Indonesian developer MassHive Media is out now on Steam, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, Nintendo Switch and Amazon Luna. The game retails at $19.99.
The game follows the town of Moonbury, which has always been wary of the advances of the outside world, preferring to rely on traditional methods of healing. That is until the mayor’s daughter falls ill and the local witch doctor can do nothing to help her, forcing the town to look outside their small community for help.
The Medical Association decides to send the player, their most accomplished chemist, to the Moonbury to cure the mayor’s daughter and convince the town to trust modern alchemy. There are over 30 different townspeople to engage with and convince.
Potion Permit is available to buy as a physical Standard or Collector’s Edition on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. The Collector’s Edition includes an acrylic standee, detailed artbook, certificate detailing the player’s service to the town of Moonbury, and more.
