During today’s Guerrellia Collective, publisher Modern Wolf and developer Strange Scaffold announced the visceral horror title Witch Strandings. This cursor-driven experience highlights the importance of connection, nurturing, transportation and physicality.
This title boasts the following key features:
- Nurture vs. Decay: It is the player’s duty to care for the forest and its inhabitants, returning the environment to its more harmonious state, before the corruption of the witch spread.
- Physicality: Played entirely with a mouse, a new control scheme to be celebrated – it’s all about building a connection between the player and the in-game world.
- Transportation and Connection: Players will link old ruins, traverse hazardous swamps, and attend to people’s needs – building connections both literal and metaphorical.
- Subversive Narrative: if we spoil it, it won’t be that subversive, will it?
The game’s designer, Xalavier Nelson Jr, shared the following statement regarding this project:
Witch Strandings is a psychic nightmare about being presented with a truly cursed place–and finding the spirit to make it a good one. Bringing something this weird and compelling to life required a partner who understood our vision, and a truly unique take on what a game trailer could be–and in both cases, Modern Wolf delivered.
Witch Strandings is releasing for PC via Steam for $14.99 later this year.
