Developed by Chucklefish, renowned for their captivating titles like Wildfrost and Eastward, Witchbrook invites players to immerse themselves in the role of a resident witch in the bustling seaside town of Mossport. Players enrol as new students at Witchbrook College, embarking on a journey filled with secrets, spells, and spirits. The game is set to capture the hearts of players with its blend of magical exploration and real-world coziness.
The gameplay of Witchbrook offers a variety of engaging activities.

Additionally, players can renovate their woodland cottage, complete with a garden, adding a personal touch to their magical adventure.
One of the game’s unique features includes seasonal events and postgraduate tasks, including a delightful nod to “Kiki’s Delivery Service” with broom-based delivery missions. These elements promise to add depth and a sense of progression to the player’s experience.
While Witchbrook is confirmed for a Steam release, details about its availability on other platforms remain undisclosed. However, the potential for crossplay hints at a multi-platform release. The game is also expected to feature multiplayer options, adding to its appeal.
