There are so many potion games brewing right now

There are several games you can play this autumn that are all named “potion”-something. They’re all about cauldrons and brewing magic elixirs to some extent, but they’re all slightly different simulation subgenres, too. There’s medieval witchery and modern witch entrepreneurship and even large-scale potion pipelines.

I’ve been following a couple of these for years and I still manage to mix them up. Seriously, any time I’ve written about a potion brewing game this year I feel honor-bound to make a gag about how no, this isn’t the same as that other one I’ve also written about. Don’t worry, even though all the names can begin to run together, we’ll untangle the options in this potion games primer—probably the list I least expected to write this year. But the potion-something games demand clarity.
