Developers at Cardboard Keep has announced Witch Thief today, featuring a coven of sassy witches on a quest for control of a fabled grimoire in a story-driven 3D shooter. As well as it having a steam release, Witch Thief will also be available on Itch.io, a website for users to host, sell and download indie video games.

In Witch Thief you are on a quest to steal an enchanted grimoire while entering into a dangerous journey through five different zones, surviving arena-based traps by possessed dolls and impenetrable bosses. You must try to defeat the tome’s guardian, and with you being a sneaky little witch, you must use your stealth skills to steal the grimoire right under their noses.

Players can furthermore unlock three additional witch heroines, each with their own different powers, and with their own story to tell.

Tim Bermanseder, co-founder of Cardboard Keep and project lead on Witch Thief  explains:

‘We focused on bridging the gap between hardcore shmup and a more relaxed, story-driven experience. On the tougher difficulty levels, this will tax the most ardent bullet hell fans – but drop into “Chill Mode” and it’s a blast for players who want to explore the witches’ stories while developing their skills”

Witch Thief features you will experience in-game:

  • Explore five distinctive zones from spooky forest glades to magnificent cathedral vaults, each with multiple boss battles and ambush arenas
    Flexible difficulty – from standard limited-life modes with ramped challenges to an innovative “Chill Mode” – where losing a life merely resets to weapon defaults.
  • Adjust the player camera’s vertical angle on the fly to best deal with the patterns of attack, and use focus control to concentrate both projectile spread and visual perspective
  • Controls optimized for mouse and keyboard or gamepad for fluid, twin-stick action.
  • A cast of memorable bosses, from the castle’s guardian angel to the chuckling bishop!

Witch Thief  will be released on PC September 21st, 2018, to be followed by console versions in 2019
