There’s an undeniable charm in the visuals of Witchery Academy, which has a very Studio Ghibli-esque feel to its wonderfully designed characters and environments. Witchery Academy is an ambitious life simulator which sees players cast as magical students with a cat companion, attending classes and learning skills such as spell casting, gardening, brewing potions, crafting and more.
You’ll be able to explore the academy and uncover plenty of secrets, as well as meet students who you can befriend. You can bond with your feline spirit companion – who’ll always be there for you to interact with. Locations outside the academy can be explored, with new companions, quests and stories to uncover – along with activities such as bug catching, fishing, foraging and fighting creatures.
Witchery Academy looks like a very compelling hybrid of Harry Potter, Animal Crossing and the aforementioned animated style of Studio Ghibli; though not due for release until 2022 on PC and consoles, the very first teaser trailer has already been released and can be viewed here:
Witchery Academy is the work of two-person development team Cubenary; considering that it’s the work of just two people, it’s very impressive indeed and has time to become an incredibly memorable title. I’ll be keeping a close eye on the development of Witchery Academy as release nears and will of course be providing updates as further information is made available.
