Grab your grimoire and gather your potions, the time to craft your spells approaches! Though you forget, a deal was made, and you’ve a debt yet to be paid
Hello again, Xbox Wire readers! On behalf of the staff at Whitethorn, I am absolutely thrilled to present to you Alientrap Games’ latest release, Wytchwood, launching today on Xbox family consoles. We invite you to step into the shoes (claws?) of the old witch of the woods, enter an enchanting world of fairytales and fables, and utilize your vast knowledge of potions and spells to complete an allegorical quest.
Abruptly awoken by an intrusive goat, you are immediately reminded of an agreement you don’t remember having made. Though the details of the contract may be hazy, they are wholly binding, and the goat has come to collect its due. As for what price you are to pay? Why, the fresh souls of twelve specific creatures seems a fair remittance, and you’ve just the skill set to acquire them.
Your search takes you across a range of beautifully rendered locations such as a festering swamp or a lively apiary. Each area is packed with ingredients to gather, puzzles to overcome, and creatures to outwit. Fortunately, your “witch’s eye” can be used to inspect your surroundings, providing insight into uses for different reagents or the weaknesses of your foes. There is little in this world that cannot be manipulated if you know what strings to pull.
Along the way, the curious characters you meet may present you with a useful tool in exchange for your aid. Some may offer advice, while others may request you complete a task for them. And some may simply be nuisances that require more permanent course correction.
Explore the strange countryside, gather ingredients to craft your spells, and pass your wicked judgement upon the capricious cast of creatures. After all, how will they ever learn if you don’t teach them the moral of the story? Wytchwood awaits, pick it up now!
