Back this on Kickstarter!
Being part of the Portland Indie Game scene is great in that you can meet really interesting developers working on unique projects. Last year I met Renee and played an early build of Potions: A Curious Tale and was really impressed with it. Potions is an adventure game where you explore the vast forest and search for ingredients for your brews. For me, Potions is a fun game in that when I played it I couldn't stop collecting items and progressing through the forest. The lack of focusing on combat was shockingly refreshing and it made the world feel more alive. Fighting is such a staple of any modern adventure game that not focusing on it felt strange and surprisingly freeing. Not to say the game doesn't include combat, it just wasn't a focus and the more times I used my wits to escape I fared better than the times I stood my ground.

If Potions is something you are interested in, I recommend you watch the video above and check out the Kickstarter project page. Potions: A Curious Tale will ship at an unspecified time on PC, Mac and Linux and I wish Renee and her team well in a successful campaign and launch.
