An Overview of Witchbrook
Witchbrook is a beautiful pixel-art RPG where you play as a student enrolled at Witchbrook College, a school that teaches the art of magic. The title also features detailed life simulation and farming elements similar to the likes of Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley.
Taking a look at Witchbrook‘s Steam page, it’s very clear that this is an ambitious title which has had a lot of hard work poured into it. The title will boast a wealth of content, and will seemingly offer players a lot of choice when it comes to both what they choose to spend their time doing, and how they choose to build their character. The title’s Steam page give a great overview of the activates and key features players can expect to find in Witchbrook, listed below:
Welcome to Witchbrook – Embark on a magical coming-of-age adventure when you enrol as a witch-in-training at Witchbook College. Journey from the familiar to the fantastical as you learn to harness the magic around you in this detailed life simulation and social RPG. Embrace your magical roots by stepping into your ancestor’s role of resident witch to the bustling seaside town of Mossport. Jump on your broom and immerse yourself in a world full of wonder and charm, discovering long lost secrets, spells and spirits! Make friends, find love, and help others to live their dreams as you travel together on the road to graduation and beyond.
Graduate top of your class – Develop your magical abilities by attending classes, completing assignments, and earning badges at Witchbrook College. Practice your new skills by putting them to the test, using your magic all over the town. Master magical arts; brew potent potions, challenge fellow classmates to a broom race, forage for strange mushrooms, and harness your botany know-how to grow all sorts of fauna and flora!
Make friends and memories – Make friends and go on romantic dates with a colourful cast of characters. Unravel their unique stories, hopes and dreams as you spend more time with each of your fellow classmates. Shape their lives, work together, and find romance…
Forge your own identity – Express your unique aesthetic with customisable clothing, hair and accessories. Renovate your cosy woodland cottage how you see fit and transform the surrounding garden into a thriving habitat for plants and wildlife.
A living, magical world – Just like you, your fellow students, teachers and townsfolk have busy routines and social calendars. Immerse yourself in a vivid world, join in the festivities at seasonal events and take part in special activities.
Extra-curricular activates – There’s more to life than just your witch studies! Spend your free time doing activities such as photography and gardening, or shop ‘til you drop at Mossport’s many boutiques, cafes and seasonal markets. Change up your look, try one of Olive’s local delicacies, or adopt a houseplant at Wild Flower.
Post-graduate life – Continue your studies as a post-graduate to perfect your skills and become the best witch you can be! Take to the skies on your broom, and hand-deliver requested homemade goods to your neighbours. A graduate witch is always in high demand with the local townsfolk.
In the words of Chucklefish themselves Witchbrook is “still brewing,” so it will seemingly be some time until the game releases. We don’t know if the game will be on console, but many of Chucklefish’s previous games have made their way to platforms other than PC. Let’s hope it’s the same for Witchbrook; I think we can all agree the title would be perfect for the Nintendo Switch.
Witchbrook is a title that caught my eye some time ago. With the latest screenshots continuing to impress me, I’ll definitely continue to follow the title up to its release. If you’d like to do the same, make sure to keep an eye on RPGFan’s news feed as we’ll make sure to provide updates on the title as they’re provided, and keep an eye on the game’s official website too.
