Description
Release date: Mid 2017
Witchkin is a first-person, single-player, hide-n-sneak, PC horror game where you play as a child trapped in a house filled with terrifying toys in the 1920s. You must progress up the floors of the house from the basement to the attic; on each floor, you are stalked by a different toy. Each toy has unique abilities and mechanics requiring you to change your strategy for each level. The level maps are procedural so every time you play the layout is different.

There are several features you must utilize to make it through the house undetected, like holding your breath to stay silent when the toy is near, or placing a music box down to distract them. There are also hindrances that you must be wary of like jacks on the floor that will injure you if stepped on, and the limited battery life of your flashlight.


Features:
  • Hide and Sneak - Witchkin is all about hiding and avoidance. You must be aware of your surroundings, of light and darkness, and even the volume of your breathing to survive!

  • Different Toys, Different Terror - Each toy has unique abilities which require the player to change strategies for every level.

  • Sepia Tone Horror - Witchkin feels like you are playing in an old, grainy black-and-white horror film.

  • Procedural levels - Hiding spots and dangers are never the same.

  • Single Player, PC compatible

  • Keyboard or controller gameplay

  • Oculus Rift Support - Experience Witchkin in the full immersion of VR through Oculus Rift!

Projected launch, August 2017

Story

The game’s story is rooted in the legend of the Candy Lady, Clara Crane, a Texas woman who murdered her husband with poisoned caramels, and was allegedly responsible for the disappearance of several children around the turn of the century. Clara lives in her house out beyond the river, but she is not alone.

Seven children have disappeared from a farming community in east Harris County; the others keep secrets. They do not speak of the candy they find on their window sills when they wake in the morning. They do not speak of the notes they find with the candy, the notes inviting them to come play at the house of the Candy Lady.

Out beyond the river, upon dead fields stands the ‘house of frogs.' Inside, Miss Crane will give you her forever candy and introduce you to your new family--the Witchkin.

Hello, I have recently started a YouTube channel focused on gaming, I was hoping that i could get some kind of key or have some way to try this out and maybe get some more attention to this game? I ask this because I always see other YouTubers get early access to other games, and honestly just by watching the trailer I got spooked, anyways even though I only have 50 subscribers, I work for two other YouTubers, Pixelated Apollo and Lionheartx10, by running their gaming events for their community, Call To Arms, which has over 4,000 members, and of course I would let everyone know about this game because it really does have a lot of potential to be a great horror game, and i love horror games, especially pyschological horror. Here are a few links so you don't think I am BSing you. My YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWyZIfIlc4eXQEDaLgr1DBw
