Joining the Hermetic Order of Alchemists was always your biggest aspiration. As the youngest apprentice to ever attempt the Trials of Alchemy, you are determined to prove yourself!
During the Trials, you must demonstrate mastery over the alchemical processes of your Order. By transmuting and refining elements and substances with your techniques, you will eventually solve all the trials. And thereby prove yourself worthy of membership in the Order.
"The Hermetic Order of Alchemists" is a puzzle-game made in Java, using the LibGDX framework. Java is required in order to run the non-web version of the game. The art was made using Aseprite, and the music was made using Bosca Ceoil.
The game is controlled by mouse. All controls have tooltips when you hover your cursor over them, and you can refer to the in-game Grimoire for help as well.
While you can complete the first puzzles through trial and error, each puzzle builds on lessons learned in the previous, so you might get stuck using this strategy. I recommend looking up the puzzle in the walkthrough below instead, if you get stuck. It describes the steps necessary, but also why the steps are necessary, which might help you in the later steps or Trials :) …or you can just follow the bolded actions, if you just want to move ahead to the ending.
