Witch Hunt – game project is a hunting simulator, which also successfully found its place in elements of horror. You have to go a long way, namely in the past. You find yourself in the distant eighteenth century in rather gloomy territory, which then needs to be carefully investigated to provide yourself with everything necessary for survival.
The storyline will be quite nonlinear, which is why you have to be ready for unexpected and sometimes even terrible turns of events. Moreover, there is a financial system and a system of skills, and both must be developed in order to successfully complete the job. There will be a huge number of dangers along your way, which will help you cope with courage, agility, and combat arsenal, with which you will eliminate all who stand in your way.
Locations will be large enough and open for research, so you will never be bored. Sudden moments and unexpected surprises will be waiting for you at every step. Improve your skills and abilities to help you overcome any danger and eliminate any obstacle.
As a result, Witch Hunt is a fully-fledged hunting simulator, which requires endurance, patience, and strong nerves. You need to find out for yourself where the monster is, how it looks, where to get a map and so on. You’ll need to be patient and track down the object, buying new equipment and skills for the character.
However, this is still a low-budget indie-there is only one map (though it’s large enough) and not the best graphics and animation. Therefore, you have an hour to be furnished with crucifixes and shoot a huge walking tree or destroy vulnerabilities on the body of the monster. But in other moments, Witch Hunt is really very interesting and an unusual genre of hunting simulator for horrible creatures and atmospheric, gothic, and sometimes — just a very creepy horror.
Pros: it can be very scary; interesting gameplay involved in pumping, tracking monsters and horror; elegant work with sound.
Cons: primitive plot; battle with big “bosses,” especially with a walking tree, tedious; weak graphics and animation; only one card.
As you know, in video games, hunting simulators are not just about shooting wild boars and deer. In the Monster Hunter series, we hunt a variety of fantastic creatures, and The Witcher is considered by some to be an exceptionally wonderful simulator of hunting for vermin and ghouls. Witch Hunt is also about hunting witches, undead and other typical inhabitants of horror. In its indie segment, this is the best game on a given topic —competitors began to steal its ideas when Witch Hunt was still in early access.
