Fans of Chucklefish and Harry Potter are in luck as we’re (hopefully) soon going to be getting the magical adventure game known as Witchbrook.
Witchbrook is going to be the latest 32-bit game from Chucklefish, and will have you play as a young and aspiring wizard starlet at a school of magic. You will be able to shape your own story by not only becoming a powerful wizard, but learning new skills at the school, interacting with NPCs to form friendships or enemies, solve puzzles, play mini-games, partake on a wealth of side-quests, and much more.
Described as a “magical school and town life simulator,” Witchbrook doesn’t yet have a release date, but it’s already shaping up nicely since we last saw it. You can compare one of the initial images of Witchbrook to its current-day counterpart below. As you can see, there’s been a pretty huge overhaul of style and graphics, but it’s looking even better if you ask me!
Over on the Witchbrook website, the game is described as follows: “Experience the thrills and pitfalls of school-life in Witchbrook! Discover a spellbinding isometric pixel art world full of charm and intrigue in this richly detailed magical school and town life simulator.
“Forge your own identity as a witch-in-training on the road to graduation. Build relationships with fellow students and townsfolk, develop your magical abilities by attending classes and completing assignments. Participate in extracurricular activities such as fishing, growing magical crops and foraging strange mushrooms. Master secret spells, make friends for life and unravel the mysteries of the school…
“Who will be your best friend? Your rival? And your date for prom?”
As for when the game’s coming, you’ll hopefully be glad to hear the team is operating with a no-crunch policy.
“Witchbrook is currently in development and so quite a while off yet, but rest assured we’re working hard to bring Witchbrook to the world. We will share more information and updates when we can,” says Chucklefish.
“Chucklefish are proud to be a zero-crunch studio. This does mean that development will take longer than some people may be used to, but we truly believe that developers who are healthy and well-rested make better games!”
