The Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout game is the first title in the Atelier Ryza JRPG trilogy developed by Gust and published by Koei Tecmo. The PlayStation store describes it as:

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.

The game was released in September 2019 for Switch and PS4 and in October that same year for Steam. The third installment, Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key, is set to be released on March 23, 2023 for PS5, PS4, and Switch and on March 24 on Steam.

The Atelier Ryza trilogy is part of the long-running Atelier series that began in 1997 with Atelier Marie: The Alchemist of Salburg. 2013’s Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky game was adapted into a 2014 anime series produced by Studio Gokumi.
