    Gust fans should definitely check it out, and I also recommend it to players looking for something a little different than your average boilerplate JRPG.

    Atelier Annie is a game that shouldn't be missed, especially if players are looking for a good laugh and some challenging tasks. Just be prepared to work hard, or else you might receive a beating from Pepe for slacking off!
  5. Atelier Annie is a charming and enjoyable little sim RPG that I wish had been more sim and less RPG.

    Overall a good game. Not hard by any stretch of the imagination, and sometimes figuring out where to get ingregiants can be frustrating, but Overall a good game. Not hard by any stretch of the imagination, and sometimes figuring out where to get ingregiants can be frustrating, but I have been having a lot of fun with it. I would say that you have to like quirky humor, otherwise most of the conversations are going to annoy you. Full Review »

Instead of the typical jRPG, Atelier Annie will have you playing as a lazy girl who must become the best alchemist. As Annie, you`ll have to make friends, enter in adventures, studying alchemy, creating resorts and promoting your own atelier. There are so many things to do and you have to use your time wisely. With 7 endings, awesome characters and a simple but challenging gameplay, Atelier Annie is a great RPG with lots of fun for those that are looking for a new experience in jRPGs. Full Review »
