The concept of this title, the latest in the series to depict a new "Atelier" world, is "True-to-life youths that develop together, even if just a little bit".
It is the story of a girl and her friends who are about to become adults, discovering what is most important to them.
To depict the story of the main characters discovering things they've never seen before, we've created fields with natural shadows that allow you to feel the breath of the world. Graphics have been further enhanced, allowing for a world of daily-life and adventure to be depicted in a new way.
#### Main Points
■ Advanced "Synthesis" system & "Location Points"
The "Synthesis" system in which players combine materials to create items has been revamped.
Now, in addition to being able to understand the effects of synthesis visually, the system allows you to enjoy the experience of developing recipes more than ever before.
Also, we've included "Location Points" that players can create through synthesis!
■ Use different items to gather new materials!
When "Gathering" the necessary materials for synthesis, the items you receive change depending on the tools you use to gather them, so it will be easier to obtain the items you want.
■ Intense Battles
With a combination of turn-based command battle and real time elements, enjoy intense battles where the choices you make determine the outcome! It is a system that will allow you to sense the feeling of strengthening bonds with your friends more than ever.
The Main Character Is Ryza, An Ordinary Girl.
Tired of boring village life, she escapes the village to gather with her good friends in a secret location to talk of their dreams and plan thrilling adventures.
One day, the determined Ryza and company decide to head for the forbidden "island across the shore" as their first exploration trip.
Together with the alchemist and other friends they meet there, they have a "summer adventure" that they will never forget.

Game data from cs.rin.ru, plus crack from CODEX. All of the launch-day DLC should be working as well.
If you want Japanese instead of English, change "Language=english" to "Language=japanese" in steam_emu.ini.
8 Nov 2019 patch: [ZIP (543 MB)](https://mega.nz/#!fIImASoC!DrVKjUbvjO06Ap2Hq8LuYF9E8e-ZukYAMdQu6HBw-dU). Make sure to delete Atelier_Ryza.cdx from the game directory.
Haven't had time to play the above patch yet. The executable changed with that patch, and I didn't see the crack out for it yet, so I removed the DRM from that one myself. Let me know if anything is broken.
And since it's been requested, I'll probably post the other Atelier games on Steam on here in the near future.
If for some reason you still want it, here's the patch released on 1 Nov 2019: https://mega.nz/#!jNQnRa7S!zkinBXfTrK2P2Ln-Gpg3AJOvCiyeDf58eUQHN099Qyo
