Weekly Games Update: Judie no Atelier, Monochrome, Winning Post World 2010 & more!

Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days. Releases are sort of slow this week, perhaps the developers are all on chocolate coma after the holidays. The games we have are Judie no Atelier, another cute alchemist RPG and Monochrome the dark romance sim. Full of magic and fantasy, come have a look.

Being entrusted to create the potion of time is the start of Judith's misadventures. As one of the most difficult potions, everything in the recipe has to be followed to the most exact degree, and unluckily, an unneeded material fell into the cauldron - Judie's hair.

And boom, she gets transported 200 into the future.

Nevermind, she'd just go gather materials and create the time potion to get back. Travel the future world with the happy go lucky girl, hunt down monsters, gather herbs and befriend the enchanting characters who'd either help you on your adventures or create more complications for you.

The PSP remake gives you more places to explore, monsters to fight and the gameplay is adjusted to suit both old and new gamers. Cute and fun, the alchemy RPG Judie no Atelier is now available for Sony PSP.
