Years ago, you sold your first born to a witch. But with your recent dating history, it doesn't look like she'll be getting her end of the bargain any time soon. So the witch has offered to help you find a suitable someone to settle down with. Will you choose the sweet farmer, the confident writer, or the brooding bladesmith? And are these really your only options?

This atmospheric text-based adventure features special graphics and soundtracks for each path, and four different endings (all of them accessible without much repetition). Expect a mysterious witch, interesting choices and at least one ending that leaves you questioning the possibilities.

This game was lovely, and your writing was the star of the show. I hope you continue to make stories, in games or otherwise. 

it was a beautiful game. well done!

Halfway through I just found myself going "Can I just date the witch now?" without really thinking it was an option but holy crap I am so happy about that ending!

i love this! so sweet :)

This was really cute, I loved the ending. <3

I really liked this game! You get to date the witch, hell yeah!

When installing from the Itch desktop, there are two options -- A Witch's Word_download.zip, and WitchsWord.zip. Only the second one will Launch on macOS -- the first fails with an executable-not-found error. The downloaded files are identical except for the receipt.json.

Perhaps the first download option should be removed, or they should be renamed to explain what they are?

this game is amazing 

hope theres more people play this game

nice gaem. c: 19/9 would game again

First, let me just say wow, the writer is really looking for a manic pixie dream girl. He's also incredibly rude and pretentious. The second he referred to himself as a "nice guy" I started laughing. It physically pains me that people like that exist. (When he snapped at the person waiting our table to get their attention, I put my head in my hands. ) Aside from him, I really liked all the characters! But I liked the witch and her ending the best! I loved playing this and would be so excited to play it as a full length visual novel or text adventure game. Thanks so much for making this! I hope you expand on this idea, but even if not I'd love to play your future games. 

hah nice

I'm dying. I felt EMOTIONS! The blacksmith was a sad story, she took my baby, I didn't like her too much. The bookbinder was a super cute story, I began to love the with when she forgave the debt. I immediately HATED the authors story and couldn't even read half of it. When it came to the last one with the witch I died LESBIAN LOVERS YESS!! I loved this!

I downloaded the Mac version, but all it had were audio files, a .png file, and a index.html file.  What should I do?

Just open the index.html file in any web browser (though I recommend Chrome) and it should work!

Awesome. Thanks!!

So,  in the end we're lesbians?

This was cute lol, I felt bad for rejecting the guys tho XD

This won't run in the web browser on my chromebook. Is there a way for me to fix that?

Owh my... this is such a beautiful turn of events and enchanting way of  storytelling :')

The bladesmith is such a loyal and patience man, the writer sure is a narcistic one, but somehow the tale with the awkward nonchalantly honest bookbinder isn't fully developed like the others ^^;

I love how cute this is!! except for that one guy.. also the secret ending!!! I love it!!

I hope I could see more of your works in the future!

This is an absolutely wonderful game and it played out exactly how I was hoping it would! I unfortunately do not have enough to support you through money, but I truly hope you continue to write stories and create things like this!
