850 backers pledged £47,335 to help bring this project to life.

About

£47,335

850

You are a struggling witch, newly arrived in town and hoping to be able to serve the village by brewing potions, scrying, tarot reading, cleansing, cursing and all manner of witchery.  

Witches Brew will see you interacting with a variety of characters within the village, each one of whom will have different needs each day. As you help them their needs may become more complex and may even require you to brew some special potions for them. 

Potion brewing however is a tricky art and so you may not always get the correct result every time you try it, often leading to unintended consequences. 

Characters

With our base goal and stretch goals the game now includes eight main characters:

Selena - The Witch (protagonist) 

Ellie - Tavern Girl

Morgan - Blacksmiths Daughter

Taylor - Merchant Girl

Brienne - Farmers Daughter

Vishan - Elven Ranger

Anna - Assassin

Ria - Woodworker

Ophelia - Money Lender

In addition to these main characters there will also be other male and female minor characters created who will also visit the Witch from time to time in order to seek help with their own issues and populate the world.

Backers also have the option to design characters for the game via the design rewards shown further down the campaign along with more minor character examples.

High Level Design Rewards

The campaign due to its success now includes the option to design characters that will appear in the game, we have various tiers that include different physical or digital items, but below are the main design options available.

Design a Minor Character (+£120)

This design level, gives you the opportunity to create a minor character who will appear in the game, thanks to the choices of our backers we are able to create minor characters at a relatively low cost making it possible for you to have your input on one of them. You can do this by picking the minor character design levels or at lower levels adding £120 to your pledge level.

Examples of some minor character designs.

This grants you the option of providing the following details for the character:  Hair Style & Colour, Skin Tone, Eye Colour & Shape, Characters Name, Personality, Brief History, Role and also to provide references for certain clothing options. For this design level the characters must all be human. But can be male or female.

Design a Special Character (+£230)

This design level is an augmented version of the minor character design level, similar to that it allows you to create a minor character for the game; designing the Hair Style & Colour, Skin Tone, Eye Colour & Shape, Characters Name, Personality, Brief History, Role and also to provide references for certain clothing options.

Unlike the Minor character design level, this level also allows you to choose what alternative race this will be from the available character races shown above. After which you will also be able to choose certain traits and bonus character features based on what race it is.

Design a Romanceable Main Character

The highest design tier of the campaign is to create a main character, that is romanceable during the game. This character unlike the minor and specials will be designed from scratch based on your specification, you can provide reference images of descriptions as you prefer.

Examples of some of the existing Romance-able Characters in the Game.

As this is a romanceable character the character must be female to remain in keeping with the current development plans. But can be any race, any design and any profession (though we will discuss this to ensure it is in-keeping with the fantasy world we have designed). In addition at this level we will create a Dakimakura for the character and an intimate scene for end game content like the other romance-able characters. Those at this level will also receive these dakimakuras as bonus physical rewards too.

N.b. Design rewards will be discussed via kickstarter private messages or on discord as soon as the campaign ends and will be one of the first things we create.

After the campaign ends, we will launch a Backerkit survey, allowing backers to confirm their order and provide any necessary details we need to supply your rewards.

Risks and challenges

Witches Brew and the Ethermerial game series has now been in development for several years, whilst we worked on artwork, landscapes, world-building, story-lines, characters and music, as well as coding of the special features of the game to work within our standard game engine of Renpy. This campaign is to fund the dedicated development of the Witches Brew game with the funds we need to finish it and make it pretty and interesting.
