Potion is a game that you win when you figure out who you are. Who are you? Are you a thief? Are you a gardener, a snake charmer or an alchemist? You must grow ingredients to distill a potion that will allow you to cross the ocean and find the mountain.

As Woody Guthrie said in his copyleft statement: ”We wrote it, that’s all we wanted to do.” We just want to make games and help artists make video games of their own.
This is a community project about expanding the medium of video game creation – as an art form – to the larger art community and making it a less elite endeavor. We would like to help build partnerships between artists and engineers that move video games and digital art forward by making it more accessible to non programmers.
There is an LARP version of this game. Ask for a starter packet and passcode if you meet us IRL. Contact us to learn more.
