I have an Atelier game for Sega Staurn, but could not really play it as it is in Japanese, and am glad to not have one in English -- and undubbed too!

woo hoo!

I liked the game, it's fun to creat stuff through alchemy and such.

But one thing I didn't like about the game is the time you have to wait between each assigment. I often finish mine in 10 days and then have to wait like 3-4 months (ingame that is) for the next one. I also think they ahould have some sort of skill usage in the game, it would make the battles much easier.

But it's a fun game, you should give it a try.

Personally, my 3-4 month wait time is sucked up by levelling my party and my resort places!

And don't forget taken jobs at the Adventure Guild, which is where I seem to kill most of my time.

Very addictive and fun RPG. It's got its own charm and the characters, while filling many anime stereotypes, are fun to watch as the story progresses. Combat is easy and not quite as complex as the RTS grid would have you believe.

I loves it!

How do i add Red trait to knight spear ? -.-

You have to create Supplement 2, you must use Red Lando as a ingredient.
Then you just apply that supplement when you create the Knight Spear.

Note:You can also create Supplement 2 with different color atribute by which type of lando you use, Blue lando creates blue supplement 2 and Yellow creates yellow supplement 2 and virse versa.

On topic, Yeah as you said i noticed further in the game that leveling and creating facilities does take up those spare months.
But now I noticed another thing I didn't like, all those damn cutscenes!
It's nice now and then to watch their wacky conversation, but it gets really annoying after a while when they pop up everytime I move from some place to another. Can't even go into the workshop whitout a cutscene appears! D:

Otherwise the game is awesome!

I've been enjoying this game quite a bit now that I beat the third challenge.

I love the graphics and once I figured out that "pure water" in recipes was actually "medicine," I was able to quickly breeze through. Right now my team is Annie, Hans, and Gillian and they are pretty decent if I say so myself.

I would have liked a little bit more of a minigame for some of the harder recipes... I don't think I've ever had one fail yet. But that is not a deal breaker and it works for me. The game itself reminds me a bit of skills in WoW: you gather the items necessary, then craft a weapon or a potion. Since I used to spend 5-6 hours a day doing nothing but mining ores and making engineering tools in that game, this is like a portable handheld of that with cute anime characters.

Highly recommended for people who like off-beat Japanese RPGs like My World My Way or Luminous Arc 2.

Hmm... When I started this game it tells me that i have a time limit to complete the obejective for the competition... And I prefer doing things at my own pace, so I think I'll pass on this game.

It's a pity.

The 'time limit' isn't oppressive. You get several months to complete it, and it's usually something so simple that you'll be able to complete it the day after you get the challenge. If you spend as much time playing DS games as you do posting here, this game should be easy as cake for you.

Plus, there are multiple endings, so you don't really have to worry about those challenges at all if you don't want to. The only pitiful thing would be if you didn't play this game based on a fear of lax time limits.

Yeah, the time limits are almost a joke. You will never be hard pressed to meet a deadline and most of the challenges are for things you either already made a couple times or for things that require items you already have dozens of in your inventory from collecting.

Some of the challenges given to you by NPCs might have a shorter time limit of a month, but if you don't complete that it doesn't change the game. You just lose out on some cash (usually 1,000 gold, but you will never be in need of money if you keep taking Adventure Guild and business jobs).

    I luckily haven't had a boss in over 20 years, (independent contractor) but the people I do work for, it's pretty much like they my bosses, and yea some can be assholes. But there has been many jobs I've walked off and mailed they're checks back to them.

    Bosses should yell at workers for mess ups they just need to know the difference in abuse and punishment

    At my last job I (as an individual contributor, not a manager or supervisor or anything) used to be the one to tell my manager when I was traveling for work "hey I'm gonna be out of office between x and y dates, I got something on the other side of the country I'm gonna go work on"
