An accomplished witch has been invited to join the prestigious Counselors of the Preceptor's Institute of Grand Sorceries - this could be the pinnacle of her achievements! She may claim her position on one condition: that she create a selection of impressive beasts as a test of her ability. This should be no more than a formality, but will she be able to complete the challenge?

Play minigames to assist the witch in gathering ingredients from the town festival, select different materials to use in her brew, and attempt to create the greatest beasts the Institute has ever seen! That is, if her affinity for Pickle the cat doesn't ruin her plans...

We will be making minor adjustments up until the game is played for PIGSquad's game jam showcase on June 23rd, 2022 at 7pm PT -details here!

This was so fun! Catching the ingredients and brewing Pickles, would do again and again. 10/10. The art is really cohesive, the colors are so cool and everything just works together so well. Congrats! And congrats to Pickle for being best cat.

Lovely game all around and very charming, also cute cat pics. 

Pickle was a wonderful mewse.
