Check out the Trailer:
“Atelier Sophie adds a new level of complexity to item synthesis that makes it even more satisfying thanks to a material placement system, which gives you more control over the quality of your creations. When you pick your ingredients, you must place them into a grid on your cauldron; ingredients have different shapes and take up a different amount of tiles, making it almost a game of Tetris where you try to find the most optimal way possible to place every ingredient. Material placement can make or break how powerful your creations are, especially since overlapping ingredients nullify surrounding bonuses. I had fun figuring out the most efficient method to give my item the best boosts and quality possible, feeling like I had more of a hand in the final product.”
