wow! this game has got so new since i haven't viewed it! how are you?

Tried playing this as a way to pass the time, very stressful. Ill make the right color then it tells me I'm wrong. I don't understand.

Edit: A day later, I come back to this and slam my desk. When I make the wrong color it tells me I'm right. Not worth it. I'm not playing this for however long it takes for this issue to be resolved.

Neato game, I just can't RGB very well... XD

As someone who paints often, so mixing colors is a usual thing for me, this game was super fun! It took me a while to realize you need patience after adding an ingredient to wait for the color to fully change, and unfortunately I failed at that numerous times lol! But it was fun regardless! I hope you enjoy the video!

Hi, wondering what game engine you used to make this?

btw, haven't played it yet but it looks really good <3

Hope you enjoy it when you do play it! It was made in Unity.

Really fun game. The art is cute and the music is really nice, I liked it a lot. :)

Very original and beautiful! Starting with lesser colours and unlocking others as we go could make it more intuitive. Some colours did not mix as I expected. A slower learning curve can help to understand the colour blends as well.

(+2)

VERY NICE! But sometimes its hard to tell what color the requested potion actually is, especially whith the ones that are mixed with grey or white

(+2)

it's a very cool game, but i'm too stupid and i can't make the right colors :))

(+1)

I love it, but can u make some powerups?, like if u finish an amount of quests in an amount of time,... u will get some skips, free ingreedients that's suitable for the next guest or extra time,... that'll make the game better

We're glad you're enjoying the game! While we appreciate the feedback, there are unfortunately no further plans to add any major updates to Crazy Cauldron.

I Absolutely Loved this game, the art was really cute!

Thank you! Yeah, you're absolutely welcome to post a video of it on youtube.

Cool game and cute art!

Would it be possible to display the leaderboards in a monospace font so it's easier to compare scores?

We're glad you enjoyed it! We appreciate the suggestion, and understand that it would make comparing scores a little easier, but we likely won't make any changes to the font to avoid causing other formatting issues.

//19.12.2021// currently there is a bug that happens when you click to ingredients: they seem to fall down (not inside the couldron) but they still occupie space in the bag, that results to make bag pop back ingradients that comes from the backyard which locks the game.

Thank you for pointing this out! We'll look into it right away.

A really nice game! Well balanced and working pretty well. Love the graphics, suits the environment perfectly!

VERY NICE

(+1)

so cool

(+2)

how about having a humanoid frog as a costumer? it will alaways ask for a orange potion

(+1)

That ain't a bad idea! Why not submit it to our Customer Creation Contest (no art required) if you want a chance to see it in game

I can't get past the screen that asks what your name is

That is definitely a pickle, which internet browser are you running the game on?

(+1)

Ah i fixed it, I just had to reload the page.

Very cool game, chart with colors was very helpful! Very esthetic itch page and I loved the characters style (So many type of customers with different visual effects, they look amazing). My favorite is ghost with glitch shader, how did you achieve this effect in Unity?

We're glad you enjoyed all the customers! The glitch effect was actually animated by hand.

fun game well made and super polished, found myself playing the game over and over again. nice difficulty curve and signaling.

(+1)

This game was so much fun. Its a good amount of challenge. It gets really hard when you have to start doing the different shades. Great game! Keep it up.

My device doesnt support this game T-T

What device are you using?

love it. this is great. its a good challenge.

Fun game! The art and visuals were cute. Music was poppin. Gameplay-wise, I like how hectic this game gets. It's pretty challenging due to the mixture of the color saturation mechanics and limited time. The leaderboard helps add a ton of replayability. Overall, great work on this!

gg! can you make more awesome projects like this?

Thanks 😊 stay tuned, definitely more to come in the future!
