Interactive games like this inspire me. Text adventures in general are my cup of tea and this game was an interesting one. Worth the time I played and kudos to the variety of men you meet and the endings that keep true to the personalities.
A Witch's Word
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 reminds me of a writing prompt i saw years ago. I love this story, thank you for making my day.
A well-written, fun little text adventure story. Nice job!
The entire time I was on the dates with the the guys I was thinking man, the witch would be amazing but that couldn't be an option and thankfully it was.
Awesome job! Keep it up.

I loved this so much! An amazing idea and wonderful execution! Sadly I am unable to donate, but I wanted to show you how much I adored this experience all the same; so please, accept this poem I wrote for you!
A Witch's Word/Invisible Ink:
The written word
Chipped into stone
Bound between beginnings
A draft done over and over again
Never amounting to a book
Worth keeping close.
That the cure to such ails
Is to take that stone
And stop writing on it
Instead dig deeper
And find the gold within.
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.
HOLY SHIT THIS BLEW MY MIND AND GAVE ME CHILLS THROUGH THE WHOLE THING
OMG THIS IS SO GOOD!!! I'M IN LOVE WITH IT!! AHH LGBT+ AND WITCHES!!! <3 <3 the story line was amazing and interesting
cant start the game say's there gone somthig wrong with instaling used the upper instal folder
the second one works fine plz set name for mac or windows or linux
Heck yeah bi characters
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!
holy shit this is so beautiful. the music was perfect, i fell in love with the witch , and i thank you dearly for making this treasure <33
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 ^^;
