(GamePlay Video doesn't contain spoilers):

Our challenge is to create a fun and bright image of the universe WitchCraft. Namely, to develop the atmospheric environment, charismatic characters, and most importantly, pay a lot of attention to detail.

The Demo version shows only one story from the life of Rudgrild, as you have noticed her personality and unique approach to magic fills her life by adventures and extraordinary events.

In our universe, there will be new characters, new locations, will be brewed more than a dozen potions that will have interesting consequences. There will be a lot of fun and interesting gameplay.

The most important, our game has many different kinds of gameplay combined in one application (for the prototype we have implemented eight different gameplay), which use such technologies as accelerometer, gesture and speech recognition.

Just imagine, that player has to say different magical spells by voice to the phone and when he said it in the right way - magic happens on the screen =)

Technology and Architecture - The game is developed for the Windows phone platform and uses an architecture that combines multiple XAML+XNA pages. For the implementation of several types of game mechanics, we use special libraries to work with the accelerometer, xml-files, isolated storage of data, voice and gesture recognition. The object-oriented approach is widely used in game development, we has implemented several tens of new classes. The game uses a sprite animation that allows to “live up” game scenes. Actively solve the problem of optimization of memory and CPU load. The game will use less than 90 MB of RAM, with no loss of picture quality and sound effects.

Business Model – The revenue model is demoware. Demo version is free, full version - paid.

In addition, the game provides in-game purchases: player can buy secret levels, new clothes for witch, new spells, choose new pet and different bonus.

WitchCraft Music

Especially for game we created a lot of music, which very helps to involve player in the storytelling process, creates and maintains a magical mood throughout the entire game =)
