Donut graph showing review languages for Alchemy Story and the proportion of players they represent.

This doughnut chart shows Alchemy Story's review languages. The most popular language is English (92%), followed by Portuguese - Brazil (3%).

Time Played

Chart displaying Alchemy Story percentiles of time played for positive, negative, and early access reviews.

This chart displays the time played in Alchemy Story, showing a comparison between positive and negative reviews. It also shows the reviews during Early Access. The time in game is not bad at all, with 26 hours in the 80th percentile.

The median play time for the negative reviews is 9 times less than the median for positive reviews. A low negative review time (median : 101 minutes) can mean that the game crashes on some systems or that the type of gameplay was not completely clear to the players (Is the game unmistakably explained on the Steam Store ?). It is also possible that players were otherwise displeased by Alchemy Story and decided to review it and get a refund under 2 hours. The Players' feedback section might give some insight about that.
