Play involves gathering, collecting, growing and crafting ingredients for your potions: toxic toadstools, eye of newt and bottled fear. You then research and concoct spells to enact on the populace.
You explore the allegorical world of tall tales, colourful personas and fantastical narratives. As you progress you are pushed to make judgments about your fellow inhabitants. Who deserves forgiveness and who punishment. After all, how will they ever learn if you don’t teach them the moral of the story?
The forest in which you live is always changing with new characters to meet and stories to discover. The result is an unusual game that challenges assumptions of who deserves justice, particularly in the familiar tales that crop up with unexpected endings.
