The puzzle mechanics do look very similar, although its not like those mechanics are unique to puzzle pirates. I have played and seen other games with similar mechanics (not for making alcohol).

It is slightly concerning that the puzzle looks very similar, so do the board graphics AND it's a brew making puzzle.

Although it is only a board game, so not sure how similar it can really be.

At least that version isn't broken compared to Obsidian.

It's interesting that it is a board game. The customer cards and matching the brew to their tastes, are a bit of twist to the game mechanics.

It definitely seems like a rip-off, although the developer swears "there's much more going on" and "We think that fans of Puzzle Pirates will enjoy it, but will definitely find it a game in its own right!" It looks like there's some kind of worker-placement and customer system, so that will be interesting to see how it plays out.
