I can not even get the right words to describe how brilliant this game is!
Art, soundtrack, story, even the battle system are incredibly well made.
I really, really loved it !
P.S. Only legends know what actual name Witch has)

I loved this game! i think im gonna replay it a couple of times :))

 thank you, i had a great time, i really needed this after this long day.  you're awesome, really<3

OH MY GOD! I LOVE THiS GAME SO MUCH! I like how Astrid convinces all of the witches daughters to join her in her quest to find a book, A BOOK! severel times I wondered how an elderly woman can send thunder bolts, shoot bubles, and cast fire balls. BUT I LOVE THIS GAME SO MUCH! when I whent to the hospital/snake stage, I thought it was going to be like omori where its all happyness and sunshine till mid way, but it staed cute and shiny and I like that desision! 

and to sing off this litle coment on and indie game, thank you for giving me this wonderfull experience :D


can I ask something silly? am I imagining it or is there a lil bit of chemistry between the witch and Astrid bc.... they're cute...


Haha i don't make it obvious in-game but i think they'd be cute together! Heres some art I made back in 2020 just before the game released! 

And some concept art (Astrid was originally supposed to be a lot shorter!) 

OH MY GOSH, THANK YOU FOR SHARING THESE.... ohh I love them ; v ;

If there have a comic book i would read.

i get the talk sense into her but my points arent enoguth

i fucked up the witch several times

safe to say, i love this game. laughed a lot at the ending and the game was just the right difficulty to last a good hour or so playing. keep up the good work!!


Played it through! Loved your work, loved everything!


this game has so much style- from the music, to the battles, to the funny dialogue... i think it's going to be one of my favorite RPGM games for a good long while. i'm so glad i finally got around to playing it!

it was also pretty fun abusing the pity mechanic during battles, hehe...


ive just completed the game and it was amazing! i find it to be a very comforting game for me now; however, i was wondering if we're able to listen to the ost from this game anywhere? the music was amazing


Thank you so much for playing, I'm glad you enjoyed it! :] I did upload the soundtrack to bandcamp a little while ago, heres the link! https://leusyth.bandcamp.com/album/astrid-the-witch

“You are a grandma” I’m sold.

How do I craft spells? I'm on a computer


Wahhh!! The character designs the art the little snippits of diolouge!!! It was all so much fun!! Thank you!


I loved playing this game. The designs and graphics are just adorable and the plot was very entertaining. I wish I could play it again for the first time.


just finished playing this game and it was such a delight! awesome job :D




This game is way too cute. I highly recommend anyone to play this!


This game was very enjoyable, the gameplay wasn't too difficult, once I figured out what keys to use and what attacks to use it was a breeze, very interesting story. Would reccomend

Nice vibe to this game !

A little bug report : when the lich cast "Witches Drain" the game hangs on "Failed to load: img/animations/drain.png" !

Whoops,sorry about that! Something always ends up being accidentally deleted when im cleaning up the files for uploading :[ I did upload a new version with that file in it,so it should be fixed now (though you can also replace that file with any png of the same name if you dont want to go through re-downloading and transferring save files!) 



Hello, I've just had Agnes join my party and am enjoying this so much! Can't wait to play it through, thank you for this lovely game. The art (both characters and maps) and the dialogue are all brilliant and playing as a grandma is super fun

Small ques: it is possible to change the controls? I was hoping to switch from WASD to arrow keys but i haven't found an option, its nbd really but I was wondering if there is an option and I simply didn't notice 

Thank you so much! :D Unfortunately there isint at the moment, i could add arrow key functionality in a future update though! 


finished it, it was a lot of fun! was wondering whether there were multiple endings?? (either way, the game's great!) 

theres just the one! i thought about adding more,but decided to keep it pretty simple. im glad you enjoyed it!! ^^

I enjoyed soooooooo much! Fell in love with every single characters! Plz keep up with whatever you are doing. Wish you luck with all my heart!!!


Just made it to the fourth sister's stage, and had to take a break to tell you that I am loving this so far! My one and only complaint is that most of the animals are way too cute for an old lady to be walloping on, I wish there was some sort of in-text confirmation that Astrid is just beating sheep with her purse or something until they lose interest in fighting. 


Oh my god thats hilarious,i really want to draw this now. Glad you're liking the game!! 


I loved it!!!! And I think I have a crush on most of the characters. Cant wait to see it completed!!!<33


Aww,thank you so much! That means a lot! <3
