Description

Meet Wednesday, a witch who foreswore magic for the love a mortal, now passed away. Urged by her family to resume her natural talents, she instead opens a small shop, spinning and selling yarn, intent on a quiet life. However, life will be anything but quiet until Wednesday discovers her true purpose in the mortal world. A circus of outlandish characters perform their magic upon Wednesday, in The Witch's Yarn. Presented as a theater script brought to life, beautiful illustrations and a terrific jazz soundtrack provide the richest of reading experiences. Gameplay begins as a simple branching narrative, where the player chooses, scene by scene, which actor will take the lead. The Witch's Yarn presents a wild variety of characters players can use to advance the story in different directions. The fun grows as complications arise, which are handled by choosing the character best suited to resolve these gradually more difficult challenges. By the end of the tale, an entangled web of conflicted characters must be carefully navigated in order to bring the drama to a satisfying, and quite possibly surprising, conclusion. The Witch's Yarn tells a many stranded tale of modern living with a wisecracking dose of fantasy. Although suitable for everyone, adults will fully appreciate its humor and situations. It is a story about family, community, and simple living. Challenges in the game arise from the very same issues by enhancing, not interrupting, the story. Built with the CineProse(tm) adventure engine, The Witch's Yarn combines the best of movies, live theater, and the written word. Play for one minute or one hour. It's as easy to pick up and enjoy as reading a book.
