After years in development, the witch shop sim Potionomics will finally be released in the autumn

I have been loosely following the development of witch shop sim Potionomics (not to be confused with Potion Craft) for a long time—over four years, apparently. It has been “coming soon-ish” long enough to stretch that definition, but now it is finally coming soon-ish in earnest. With a new trailer showing us a cross-section of brewing, haggling and management involved in running a successful potion shop, Potionomics has also conjured up a release window in the fall of 2022.

I have long hoped that store management sims would have their own great heyday, and Potionomics certainly looks like it can meet my demand. The casual life smoldering (and deeply cut Recettear fans) will recognize the set-up: The witch Sylvia inherits an elixir shop from a deceased family member, and she is stuck reviving the place to pull out of debt.
