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.

I like the starting-screen's background-colour, font/size and colours there. (also the suggestions about fullscreen-mode & itch's attached button) and also that this game's available in browser is cool too. btw: I'm playing it on a win8.1-laptop, using a basilisk-browser ...just in case for knowing on which devices it could work better / less awesome / referring to possible errors / etc.


clicking "start".
uhm, that audio was way too loud because of my device's prev. adjustments, while a main-screen's info like: includes audio & testbutton/volume-settings would be preferred there.


music.
Sounds okay, personally it's quite too fast and too much looped in instuments. I guess playing it with in muted tab in browser would be my personal preference for now, while I mainly play games muted in general. This type of similar acoustic would also sound too "adventure"-themed than fitting to text which could take a while for reading, replying by clicks, etc.


in-game.

What differs those right-arrow icons with the highlighted words in the story? Could the arrows be an option for e.g. vision/colour-"blind"-users, so they know how to progress there without having to spot the exact word for clicking?


"let's find a man"-paragraph.
Until this lines I've noticed that those arrows appeared, I've clicked them instead of the marked words so far. I like the options of different types and 3 selectable variety.


"blacksmith".
New background looks cool, while white on redish-blue ...could fit better e.g. if using a black font, I guess? Those possible replies are way easier in text for reading, at least as I prefer them in visuals. Hovering for highlights in replies sounds cool, in pink ...I'd prefer maybe a more blue-ish colour?


mouse-pointer's status:
It would be cool if e.g. replies won't turn my pointer to the "hand"-icon, while the questions were turning it into a "text"-defined standard cursor. How about a custom image e.g. as single letter (initial?) of the chosen guy e.g. referring to blacksmith / bookbinder / etc. paragraphs there, while as png its background could be maybe set to transparent too, I guess. Could look cool e.g. if using a letter with shadow-effect?


btw: what catches my attention was the title and banner-pic, also that it's a browsergame & it could be about magic attributes.

awww :')

WHY IS THIS SO WHOLESOME???? i FLIPPIN' LOVE IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTT

O M G 

I LOVE THE GAME SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO AWESOME

i wasn't expecting that at all omg im so happy TAT

(+1)

Just finished the story and I have to say, the game is really cute but the ending was so WHOLESOME!

(+1)

Ohhhh dear, I looove the ending. This is really nice. Like nice nice niceness.

Just downloaded this game as it wasn't working in the browser and it says there is a fatal error. I'm running this on Mac OSX and I tried in both Firefox and Chrome. Can you help? Thanks

It's OK - got it working by download and playing in Chrome - didn't seem to like Firefox. Still can't play it from the browser though! :

I did read this story a while ago and I have a good time with it. Cute romance.  

Ahhhhhhhh I love it!!!! The idea of new possibilities and just everything! A simple but touching game <3 Thank you so much for making it

(+1)

Ahhh this is a beautifully made and written little adventure!

Wait, is the witch like, bi/lesbian? Or... are we (the player) bi/lesbian? She kissed us at the end part so... Oh but don't get e wrong, this was a unique game for me! My very first novel story game I've played. It was interesting, VERY interesting. Overall this was nice, 10/10 ^^

(+1)

This is so sweet and so well done! I love the scheme of additional/alternate text behind some of the narration, and the character's are really strong. And I have to commend you for including that fourth option, because as soon as I thought about what route I wanted to go for I realized it was none of the offered ones. The 'witch' ending is beautiful and so worth it. 

(+1)

Amazing , just amazing

(+5)

Nobody: 

The witch: lets go find you a man

me: a man? a man, honey?

"Endings and beginnings" felt so much meaningful due to the choice of delivery.

(+2)(-1)

Warmed my cold, dead heart.

(+4)

(+3)

one word, YES. 1000/10

(+5)(-5)

i knew it would be gay-

This is just utterly lovely! I enjoyed it a lot.

(+1)

Is this based off that writing prompt? I've been looking for a story like this for awhile

(+3)

I love the little plots and the choices you can make in the game. I really enjoyed playing it.

(+2)

I've only done one of the routes but so far the game is very well done. The only complaint I have is that the white text on a dark background is a bit hard to read, but that could easily be fixed by zooming in my browser. Overall, a sweet and well written story with a great soundtrack!

(+1)

A wonderful game that made me feel happy inside.

yes! this was beautiful but simple, i love it.

(+4)

I hoped the story would end that way, and it did!
