What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Witch It is an Early Access game, 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 2016 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.

At the moment 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 2018/early 2019.”

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 (Russian, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, Turkish, Traditional Chinese)
  • 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?

  • 9 Maps
  • Over 250 different playable props
  • Physical based prop movement
  • Individual Skills for Hunter and Witches
  • 3 game modes
  • player progression system
  • character customization system
  • Ingame chat
~Page Update: April 20th 2018

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 0.8.1

The time for bonus drop rates for the ‘String’ (Theatre item ingredient) got extended until June 13. This means the ‘String’ will not only drop on ‘Twin Mask Theatre’, but also has a 20% additional drop chance on any map.


To celebrate the first Anniversary of Witch It we added “Legacy” witch & hunter items to certain level unlocks.

Crafting system update:
You provided us with some feedback regarding the crafting system. We decided on a couple of points to improve the experience and prevent frustration. Please keep the feedback coming!
-increased the number of ingredients that will drop
-Fingernails from 1 to 2-8
-Mouse Poop from 1 to 2-8
-Troll Eyes from 1 to 1-4
-Mandrake from 1 to 1-2
-added a small drop chance for 1 Crystallized Moonlight
-increased drop chance for recipes
-Recipes are now smashable (they drop 1 ingredient of their quality)
-increased the chance for getting at least 3 ingredients at the smash bench

To reduce the effectiveness of exploiting/ farm games:
-reduced the amount of Magic Dust a witch will drop to 1
-reduced the XP required to fill the cauldron from 300 to 250
(to compensate for the dust drop reduction)


-Added a First Person camera for the Witch and props default key is (T)
-Added functional saloon doors to Twin Mask Theatre
-Added French, Italian & Russian localization
-Added 1 new prop
-Added benchmark for graphic settings: When you start Witch It for the first time settings are determined and can be changed if wanted afterwards

-Changed: Remastered visuals of the default potato projectile & default witch broom
-Changed: Optimized rendering performance of the main menu

About This Game

Witch It is a multiplayer hide & seek game. Brave hunters seek hidden witches in a humorous, magical world.

Hunt & Hide in a vibrant, magical world




The Witch It world is jam-packed with humble villages, icy lakes, and ancient libraries for you to explore and hide within. Each map has its own stories and secrets for you to delve into and discover!

Seek as a Fearless Hunter




As a hunter, your job is to hunt down all the witches for the sake of a peaceful town. Hunters are equipped with a range of different tools and gadgets to help them with their task, whether it is a loyal chicken that scans for sneaky witches, or a body slam skill that causes huge impact damage in one area!

Hide as a Mischievous Witch




Witches have the ability to mimic almost anything in the landscap in order to fool the hunters and stay alive. Witches can switch between different props as they please, as well as perform different spells to confuse, scare, and even invert the controls of their opponents!

Discover a wide variety of props




Each map is filled with an ever-expanding amount of unique props that witches can disguise themselves as, from large items of furniture to small foods and fruits. Glorious rewards await the most curious of witches who can find and mimic all of them!

Express Yourself




Fill your wardrobe with stylish shirts and wacky brooms. Unlock more and more items as you play the game and earn experience, so you can individualize your hunter or witch according to your own personal taste!

Choose between several game modes




There are currently three game modes. 'Hide & Seek' – Hunters have to find all the witches to win the game. 'Mobification' – Caught witches turn into hunters. 'Hunt a Hag' – Skills are disabled for both teams and hunters can only use their melee weapon.

Main Features




  • Play as a hunter or witch on nine diverse maps, each with own unique playstyles and prop layouts for you to discover!
  • Use a growing array of fun skills to troll and fool your opponents!
  • Dynamic prop movement allows you to easily locate hiding spots or traverse the maps effortlessly!
  • Unlock countless customization options for both hunters and witches, of varying rarities and caliber!
  • Progress and level your account to show off your prop hunting and hiding abilities!
  • Play on public servers with other experienced prop hunters, or open up your own private server and play with a group of friends!

Witch It is an Early Access title, so our core gameplay mechanics and features may be subject to change. We welcome all types of feedback over on our Steam Forums or Discord server!
