What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Witch It will be in Early Access on Steam, because it is a fantastic way to engage with the Witch It community in an early state of the game. We already had a test version of the game running during the holidays in december and we collected a lot of feedback which already helped us immensely to improve the game since then. Our goal is to work close together with the Witch It community, especially because Witch It is a Multiplayer game and we want to provide players the opportunity to take part in the creation of the game.

When Early Access starts, Witch It will be in a very early state. At this point the focus is not on optimizing, but on working on new features, more content (like new maps) etc. Even though critical bugs will be fixed asap, there will still be bugs, performance issues and other problems. That’s why your feedback is so important to us. A huge team of 50 or 100 people has other options for quality assurance in comparison to us from Barrel Roll Games, a team of 4 people. Help us creating the best possible Witch It!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The Full Release is planned for the end of 2017.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

  • More maps including the new magical setting “Witch forest”
  • A lot more props you can use as a Witch player
  • More Skills for Hunter and Witches
  • More game modes
  • A lot more items for the character customization
  • Localization (planned so far are Turkish and German, but we want to add more)
  • Machinima friendly replay editor
  • Twitch integration
  • Discord integration
  • A network of dedicated servers around the world

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • 5 Maps
  • Over 100 different playable props
  • Physical based prop movement
  • Individual Skills for Hunter and Witches
  • 2 game modes
  • First attempt of the player progression system
  • First attempt of the character customization system
  • Ingame chat

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We want to thank all the people who are going to support us at the early state of the game, so the price for the Early Access version will be cheaper than for the full version of Witch It. Additionally, the price for the full version will be different since it has more content to offer.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We already started our own Discord Server where we can connect with the Witch It community. Our team is online most of the days, people can always talk to us and of course everyone can feel free to ask questions. For example, we also have a dedicated channel for game suggestions. Players can also connect with us on Social Media platforms like Twitter & Facebook.”

Patch 0.7.1

The Halloween Event will be extended until November 29th.

This Update has such a big file size, because we did small changes to all maps.

Due to a fix to the Config system your selected Skins (Hunter and Witch) are resetted to default. This is only a one time issue and shouldn't happen again.

We updated to Unreal 4.18.1 (the game should be more stable as a result of this)
However, if you encounter new crashes please send the crash dumps located at %localappdata%\WitchIt\Saved\Crashes as a Zip file to support@barrelrollgames.com
and add a small description on when the crash did occur.

-Added a way to get rid of your spare ectoplasm: you can now craft random items out of them.
(There is even a small chance to get Summer Event Items.)

-Changed the lighting system of all maps. We are using volumetric lightmaps now. They will make the lighting between characters, props and environment more uniform and cost less cpu performance, but a bit more gpu performance.
-Changed: Adjusted lighting and fog settings of most maps.
-Changed Witch and Hunter Customization Screen. They are more fitting now.
-Changed: Removed experimental Vulkan support.

-Fixed: Accepting an invite via steam should now send you to the correct game.
-Fixed flickering ocean at the Island maps.
-Fixed a crash related to the sound volume sliders.
-Fixed easter egg props laying around in some layouts.
-Fixed bounciness of the chicken.
-Fixed: Screenshot key no longer crashes the game.
-Fixed: All key bindings showed “Not Set” sometimes when joining a game.
-Fixed: Enhanced bounce physics of several skin items.
-Fixed tomato brightness in shadow.
-Fixed a bug where the Oculus Rift interface will open when you start Witch It.
-Fixed the colors of the nameplates to the correct Hunter and Witch colors
-Fixed chest and barrow prop teleportation.
