You’ve decided to take the risk and purchase a run down house in the middle of a spooky forest near a dungeon overrun with monsters.

Lucky for you you’ve been trained in the art of Potion making! Explore the land and dungeon for ingredients to create powerful potions and tasty delicacies.

Unfortunately for you, you're not a fighter. Many potions have powerful effects which can aid you in battle, whether it’s to make you smaller, faster, blow up areas and monsters or a potion to summon a cute ghost to just hang out.

Sell your extra potions and prepared foods to the merchant for a bit of coin. You can use this coin to purchase recipe books, and even expand the land around you. When you unlock new areas you’ll find new ingredients, crafting recipes, crops, animals, secrets and more.

While Potion Paws is a separate stand-alone game from Garden Paws we are going to be introducing some of these spooky items into Garden Paws. If you own Potion Paws on Steam you'll unlock a spooky furniture set, a cat ghost companion and more!

We have also changed quite a few things from Garden Paws (our larger RPG). You'll find quite a bit different including how the world is unlocked and expanded, any item that is larger than you will have to be carried, and there are no quests. It's up to you if you'd like to expand the land around you to unlock new items, or focus unlocking more crafting stations and recipes.

We've introduced quite a few new features that we're really excited to share with you. 

There are plenty of things to do in your days in Potion Paws. You can Explore the world, look for materials, craft potions or foods, tend to your garden, or take your chance dungeon diving for treasures and rare ingredients!

Let us walk you through some of the many features you will find in Potion Paws.

Your adventure starts at the spooky old house you just bought, which is right by the entrance of an old mysterious dungeon. Heavy fog covers this lands but don’t worry! You can use your resources to clear the fog and uncover more land to explore and find more items to collect!

With each area you unlock there are new materials, secrets, and even creatures you can find and carry home. You will want to explore as much of the map as you can and unlock all it’s treasures.

This world is full of monster parts, plants and more that you can use to craft into unique goods to sell! You can cook delicious monster treats and craft powerful potions that have plenty of different effects

With your alchemist skills at hand you can use your cauldron to create a wide variety of potions. Potions can be sold or used for its effects. You can use a potion by drinking it or throwing it to alter the world around you or defeat monsters. 

For example, if you make a Cactus Potion and drink it, you’ll grow spikes and enemies that touch you will take damage. But if you throw the cactus potion at a group of enemies, spikes will grow out of the ground hurting them.

The potions can also be used to reach new areas. See a hole that’s too small to fit through? Maybe a Tiny Potion can help.

If you'd like to have more Potion Paws in your life you can find Garden Paws and Potion Paws merch here!

You can add a copy of Garden Paws (PC/Mac) to your pledge for $15 US or $20 CAD.
You can add the Exclusive Cat Pet to your pledge by adding US $15 or CAD $20. You will receive both black and white cats in both Garden Paws and Potion Paws

To add the stickers listed above, simply pledge to the tier you would like and add the price to your pledge. For stickers please add $4 CAD for shipping if you don't have a physical tier (toast plushie).

If you have already pledged then click "Manage Your Pledge" (or here) and then in "Change your pledge" add the corresponding amount to your pledge without changing your tier.

When the Kickstarter is done, we will contact you and verify which add-ons you would like. Physical rewards will be sent out December 2019.

Bitten Toast Games is a game studio based in British Columbia, Canada. As a studio we've been making games for the past 3 years with titles like "What The Box?" released on the Xbox One (Soon on the Nintendo Switch), "Rocket Fist"  which was released on the Nintendo Switch in 2017 and more recently “Garden Paws” which is set in the same universe as Potion Paws.

You can find Dan and Kristina streaming Game Development on Twitch at https://twitch.tv/bittentoastgames or hanging out in the Discord here https://discord.gg/BittenToast

Our team members are:

Daniel Snd: Lead Programmer / Technical Artist.
Kristina Vandale: Game, Art and Level Developer.
Thiago Adamo: Music and Sound Design.

We also had the collaboration of TheStarBear on the cute 2D drawings you see on this page.

Why Kickstarter?

We ran a Kickstarter last year for “Garden Paws” and found it to be an amazing tool to build a community around the game and get players engaged and involved with the development of the project.

We love the community that grew around Garden Paws and can’t wait to see what new community will grow with Potion Paws.

About the Development

Over the last year we have taken a few creative breaks, whether it was to make a battle royale in 3 days for Ludum Dare, or when we created a card game when we didn’t have internet.

        During our last creative break we started Potion Paws which is a game we always wanted to make. Once we started creating the project in Unity we really fell in love with the direction it was heading. It seemed to work out purr-fectly that we would be done with the game in time for Halloween and that’s how the idea for a Kickstarter formed.

With Potion Paws having quite a few items and ideas that don’t fit the Garden Paws theme we decided to make it a smaller standalone game. We want to continue building onto Garden Paws, but not force players to have ghosts, monsters and such in their main game.

With that we have decided to do crossover items, even a ghost cat pet along with many other Potion Paws specific items you generally wouldn’t find in Garden Paws.

Timeline

Potion Paws is coming up on being fully complete. With that we’re planning a full release mid October, shortly after the Kickstarter ends.

  • September 5th - Kickstarter Starts
  • October 1st - Kickstarter Ends
  •  Early October - Beta Test Copies are sent.
  •  Mid October - Release on Steam
  •  Q4 2019 - Crossover items implemented to Garden Paws
     

Budget Breakdown

Risks and challenges

We feel the risks are lower for this project as this isn’t our first Kickstarter and we know what to expect. (Our first Kickstarter was last year with Garden Paws which has been launched and is on Steam.)

This is a smaller project that leverages what we learned from our previous experiences to deliver another great game within the same universe. With many new features that we are excited to share with everyone.
