"Witch", an Indie JRPG coming soon from Heartstrings Studios!
Set in a semi-fantasy world where a living god, Alecian, has outlawed magic, bringing war and genocide to those that oppose him. A Commander in his military, Vythica, has served dutifully, bringing cities to their knees and aiding in the execution of witches and wizards However, Vythica hides a secret...she herself is a witch. Vowing to serve honorably and never use her powers, she believes she's on the right side of the war, but struggles with the morality of her actions. During a fateful battle, she finds herself in a life or death situation, forcing her to unleash the magic she's kept hidden for so long, saving her life and the lives of her soldiers, but condemns herself. She escapes and hides in an abandoned, war-torn town. On a supply run, she learns that word of a powerful warrior with magic has spread, and for the first time in a long time, mages have a reason to hope. Vythica vows to undo the damage she's done and stand up to fight for those like her, taking in other mages and those that support them, who all join her resistance. Every witch that joins her side in battle has a story to tell, and a reason to fight.
