Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea (Japanese: シャリーのアトリエ～黄昏の海の錬金術士～ Hepburn: Sharī no Atorie ~Tasogare no Umi no Renkinjutsu-shi~) is a part of the Atelier series and is the third and final installment of the Dusk storyline and the 16th main game in the series overall.
The player is able to choose one of two characters, each with a differing storyline and adventure; regardless of which character is chosen, the flow of the game remains the same. In comparison to previous Atelier games, fields are significantly larger, and the player is able to harvest a wider variety of items and raw materials to use for mixing. Field actions differ depending on the character. Shallote is able to scrub the floor for items with her broom or clean and catch fish using bait, Shallistera is able to uncover hidden items through dowsing, and both characters are able to mine for items at various locations on the field.
The game's story takes place about 10 years after the beginning of Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk and 6 years after the beginning of Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky. As water sources dry up from an oasis town, the plants wilt and animals go hungry. It is here where two alchemists with different methods of making a living meet. Whilst Shallistera aims to find a way to save her village from demise, Shallotte Elminus goes on her daily life in an attempt to become a proper alchemist. Shallistera's story will reveal the truth and mysteries that have been depicted throughout the Dusk series, while Shallotte's story will revolve around the daily life in the world. After meeting each other, Shallistera and Shallotte will grow by fulfilling goals by working together and the friendship of the two are one of the elements that the story will focus on.
