Witch Story Review (2.5/5★)

Table of Contents

Chapter One: Introduction

Witch Story is a lewd match-three game available on Steam. I received a free copy of this game for review purposes — thanks Hunny Bunny Studio!

To experience the complete game with adult content, the Witch Story 18+ Adult Only Content DLC must be installed. This article will strictly discuss the patched game.

Chapter Two: Gameplay (2/5★)

Section One: Overview

Witch Story is considerably simpler than most “match-three” games. Instead of relying on a “points” system, the goal of the game is to simply collect a specified number of select objects. Unfortunately, this simplicity comes at a cost; rather than skill, winning is purely determined by whatever game pieces the game feels like.

There are two characters to choose from with differing motivations and unlockable sexual content. Between levels is quite a bit of dialogue — so much so, I consider this game to be a cross between a match-three game and a kinetic novel.

Chapter Three: Sexual Content (3/5★)

Section One: Content

There are eight animated, unlockable animations based on five pieces of art.

The sexual content is a little scattered, featuring light BDSM, tickling and weird insertions — but for the most part, the sexual content is pretty vanilla.

Section Two: Implementation

Completing levels in “story mode” unlocks sex-scenes.

Section Three: Interactivity

Sexual content during “story mode” is linear with dialogue, but when its played back from the gallery each “interaction” may be individual played in any order, until your heart’s content.

Section Four: Quality

The artwork is great and the animation is alright, but the interactivity is mediocre. I’m not a fan of disembodied body parts, and the animation that is played while “interacting” with the witch is too short. I shouldn’t have to click a button every second to continue “playing” with her.

Chapter Four: Story (2/5★)

Section One: Plot

The “lord of the golden valleys” wants the head of “the witch, who terrifies the mob, brings curses, dissent and trouble”. To bring the witch to the court, a scribe and a battle-hardened knight have been dispatched. Of course, the witch has a way with her head to deal with the lord’s men!

You know, If you catch my drift!

Section One: English

The translation is awful. I could follow along just fine, but the least the translation team could have done was proofread.

Chapter Five: Sound (2/5★)

Section One: Soundtrack

The soundtrack is fantastical and thematically appropriate, but the looping is shit — there’s an audible silence every time the music restarts. With less than a minute of composition, you can expect to hear an awful lot of awkward silences.

Section Two: Sound Effects

The sound quality of this game is very poor. I could hear when ambience and sound effects would start and stop due to excessive background noise and general distortion. I expect more from Hunny Bunny Studio.

Section Three: Voice Acting

The voice acting is also poor. It’s repetitive, low-quality audio which tarnishes the sexual content.

Chapter Six: Visuals (4/5★)

Section One: User-interface

The user-interface looks great! I enjoyed the adorable icons and colorful text-boxes.

Section Two: Graphics

The animations are a blast. Every screen features some form of movement, typically with beautiful and honoured enchantress breasts. . .

Chapter Seven: Verdict (2.5/5★)

The gameplay lacks strategic depth, relying on randomness is frustrating, the translation is poor, and the sexual interactivity isn’t great. But a few of the animations are pretty hot, and the gameplay is suitable for a casual crowd. It’s fine as a dollar buy, but I don’t think I’ll be going out of my way to recommend this game unless you’re specifically after quick achievements.
