An intriguing and novel take on Hideo Kojima's Strand ideas, Witch Strandings is a bubbling cauldron of magic and menace about saving or suffocating a haunted forest and its woodland inhabitants.

Witch Strandings is odd in the best possible way, with an esoteric story and unique gameplay and visuals that - for the most part - work very well.

When you set out to make something truly unique, you may find that what you make simply isn't for everyone. Even with the short couple of hours it takes to reach one of the game's endings, I find it hard to completely recommend this to everyone. It's weird, it's abstract, and it asks more of you than you'd expect. But for the weirdos who are seeking something brand new, willing to overlook some moments of stagnancy, and are open to embracing the love of helping your fellow neighbor, Witch Strandings is worth experiencing. And if you aren't a weirdo, why'd you just read 1500 words about a "strand game?"
