Witch It Review
Posted: 6 months ago, last updated 4 weeks ago.

It's based on the "prop hunt" idea that players have invented in other games (like Minecraft), where you hide by becoming something in the world. Each map is filled with an ever-expanding number of props that witches can disguise themselves as, from large items of furniture to small foods and fruits.
Hide & Seek mode is where the hunters have to find all the witches to win the game. Mobification mode is where found witches turn into hunters and join the hunt. Hunt a Hag mode is where skills are disabled for both teams and hunters can only use their melee weapon. Fill a Pot mode is where witches need to fill cauldrons and Hunters must prevent them from doing so.
This is out on PC already and coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 shortly.
