Witch is a dark and modern fantasy RPG from Angry Hamster Publishing. In the game you play someone who’s done the dark deal with a power… The Kickstater is doing well and is meeting the humble target of less than €5,000 in just a day. More details are available from here.
Geek Native published a Sneak peek at Witch in January.
Backing is simple. €15 unlocks a PDF of the game. €25 gets you the PDF, softcover and stretch goals. The €300 top slot is selling and the €150 second top slot has sold out.
There’s no doubt the RPG community, by and large, is welcoming Witch and the hamsters.
There are six character classes, Fates, to pick from. Each one a reflection of a local tradition and a variant on the dark deal. The game warns us it gets a bit grim at times but promises depth and engagement.
There’s plenty of touches to the occult here. Some of the backing tiers offer “spirit boards”. I think that’s a nice touch. This is just a game but a bit of supernatural flavour to it helps suspend disbelief.
