'Witch It' (ALL) Picked Up By Daedalic, Also Coming to PS4/XOne

Witch It is a multiplayer hide & seek game set in a humorous, magical world where brave hunters are tasked with seeking the witches that curse their villages.

Witch It is a multiplayer "Hide & Seek" game of two competing teams, where brave hunters seek hidden witches in a humorous, magical world. There are currently three game modes: 'Hide & Seek' - hunters have to find all the witches to win the game; 'Mobification' - Catched witches turn into hunters; and 'Hunt a Hag' - skills are disabled for both teams and hunters can only use their melee weapon.

The Witch It world is jam-packed full of humble villages, icy lakes, and ancient libraries for you to explore and hide within. Each map has its own stories and secrets for you to delve in and discover!

As a hunter, your job is to hunt down all the witches for the sake of a peaceful town. Hunters are equipped with a range of different tools and gadgets to help them with their task, whether it is a loyal chicken that scans for sneaky witches, or a body slam skill that causes huge impact damage in one area!

Witches have the ability to mimic almost anything in the landscape, in order to fool the hunters and stay alive. Witches can switch between different props as they please, as well as perform different spells to confuse, scare, and even invert the controls of their opponents!

Daedalic founder and CEO Carsten Fichtelmann said: “Adding multiplayer games to our portfolio is a critical part of our growth strategy. Publishing Witch It is an important step for us to build and grow a business around games as a service. We are looking forward to be working with the team at Barrel Roll Games and we are very confident we can help making this an even bigger success story.”

Christoph Rienäcker, CEO of Barrel Roll Games said: “We will benefit from the experiece and manpower Daedalic brings. Self-publishing the game was a big challenge and we are happy to have someone at our side now, who can help with global marketing and distribution. We are now going to focus again on optimizing the game, on creating additional content and we’ll be working on the console versions.”

Each map is filled with an ever-expanding amount of unique props that witches can disguise themselves as, from large items of furniture, to small foods and fruits. Glorious rewards await the most curious of witches who can find and mimic all of them!

Fill your wardrobe with stylish shirts and wacky brooms. Unlock more and more items as you play the game and earn experience, so you can individualize your hunter or witch according to your own personal taste!

Key Features:

  • Play as a hunter or witch in 9 diverse maps, each with its own unique playstyles and prop layouts for you to discover!
  • Use a growing array of fun skills to troll and fool your opponents!
  • Dynamic prop movement allows you to easily locate hiding spots or traverse the maps with ease!
  • Unlock countless customization options for both hunters and witches, of varying rarities and calibre!
  • Progress and level your account to show off your prop hunting and hiding abilities!
  • Play in public servers with other experienced prop hunters, or open up your own private server and play with a group of friends!

The game has sold almost 100,000 units since its Steam Early Access release in May 2017. So far Barrel Roll Games has been marketing the game on its own and managed to grow a significant fanbase through video content creators, mainly in Europe. One of Daedalic’s main tasks will be growing the international audience of the game, making it more visible in North America, and releasing it on PS4 and Xbox One.

Apart from the console versions and support for a number of new languages, Daedalic is already working on creating more visibility for the game in North America. Visitors to Pax East in Boston during April 5-8, 2018 will be able to get their hands on the game on the showfloor.

Witch It is currently available on Steam Early Access.
