The Witch in the Forest is about a young woman who lives in the forest and is mystified by all things magical and natural. One day, however, she meets another young woman living deep in the forest- a real witch!

The Witch in the Forest (TWITF) is centered around Fidelia, a somewhat introverted and socially awkward girl who stumbles upon Jastiline's house one day and befriends her. It's a short, 12,000+ word NVL/ADV-style kinetic novel about their lives as they prepare for their favorite holiday, Halloween! This visual novel was made in about 20 days for the Yuri Game Jam 2017.

Thank you to my beta testers and everyone else who helped me whether it was advice, tips, or whatnot!

Version 1.3 is the last and biggest update to the game! It adds new sprite poses, newly edited backgrounds, a new date, and even the option to play in NVL mode or ADV mode at the start of the game. 

Thank you also to everyone who's played it so far. I hope you all enjoy this new update and perhaps play some of my future visual novels. Thank you again for all the support!

If you donate more than $1 to download this and would like the art book as well, please comment or email me and I'll be happy to send it to you!
