Once upon a time, it's just another day at the park and...oh wait, is that an ASTEROID in the back??



Sorry old man in the raincoat - that measly umbrella will offer you no protection! Oh well, it's a good day for an apocalypse.

HERA (Holographic Earth Revival Alchemist) awakens one day to find Earth destroyed with little life remaining. The planet depends on you. Using the combined powers of science and HERA's alchemy pods, can YOU help revive Earth?
  • DISCOVER combinations to create new animals
  • TRACK your achievements with the unique fossil graveyard system
  • RESURRECT discovered animals with a simple tap
  • ADVANCE through the eras of time
  • HINTS/RIDDLES We have a hint system that will nudge you towards the right direction
Each colorful animal is lovingly animated!

Fans of the Alchemy series (Little Alchemy, Doodle God, etc) will enjoy our game because instead of creating still/unmoving tiles, we wanted the players to create a "living" and "breathing" "terrarium", if you will.







The game is supported with ads and in-app purchases but they are not necessary to beat the game. We provide riddles for each animal combination to give you a hints.

Here's an old gameplay video (some visual things have changed since then):

Thanks guys! =D

Some behind-the-scenes notes: We had no budget for audio, so 98% of the animal sounds are done by the mouth of yours truly *bows*

I'm not THAT good with beatboxing. I used Audacity to pitch shift and manipulate the sounds. But researching animals to find out what noises they make was REALLY fun!

I finally got a chance to play this, and this is great! Definitely scratches that doodle god itch but infuses it's own sense of style and some cool new mechanics (great animal sounds by the way)

I love the riddle system, and the art is great too.

Definitely can't wait to dig into this some more

Definitely a clever little game. I'm not a huge fan of the banner ad across the top. I do really like the story and the art. I also like how it's sectioned off so as not to be super overwhelming. (I'm at the third era now).

If and when you update, any chance you could change the home screen name? I'm seeing "Eras of Alc..." Maybe to "E of A" or "Eras of A" or just "Eras"

Keep up the good work!

Jerutix - thank you for the feedback! We tried our best not to have the ads be intrusive, and any IAP will remove them. About the loading screen - ACK! Out of curiosity, what hardware are you using?

Sanuku - very cool! I will be checking this thread periodically, so feel free to leave feedback. =)
