Snapshot: January 2019

The Witchfire development diary we’re running here usually focuses on the design (like how we work on weapons or what’s our approach to story-telling), but today’s entry is a literal dear diary entry. We’ll be doing these once in a while, probably monthly, and soon the photos will be accompanied by videos. For now, it’s […]

When Witchfire was not Witchfire

Our new project is a good few years old. If we were just a bit more sane, it should have been released already.

But that’s our history and our world. In the world of Witchfire, witches are real. And you are the punishing hand of the Church. […]

Website Redesigned

Changes to our website: •    For a long time, our website featured project-related articles, as well as general game design musing, including reviews of other games from a game designer’s perspective. From now on, we’re focusing 100% on our own projects. It’s mostly going to be about our current project, Witchfire, but there might […]
