Development of Potions: A Curious Tale
Potions: A Curious Tale is Stumbling Cat’s first major game and features gameplay that challenges the traditional benefits of combat in games. The development of Potions: A Curious Tale started in 2014 by Renee Gittins. After resounding interest was expressed in the prototype, Renee decided to explore interest in the title through Kickstarter and successfully raised nearly $65,000 to support the development of the project.
After 9 years of development and many hardships, Potions: A Curious Tale is releasing in 2024.
