    Wytchwood is a crafting game, through and through — and a good one. It smartly puts its focus purely on the act of gathering materials to create a wide range of objects, with little else to distract from the core crafting mechanic. It’s backed up by a great soundtrack and a reasonably well-told but ultimately forgettable tale as you trawl through the various areas searching for ingredients. Trying to locate specific items can at times feel exhausting and drags down the pacing of the game, and the gorgeous visuals are unfortunately hampered by a slight frame rate jitter. Ultimately though, Wytchwood is a relaxing and addictive jaunt into the world of crafting.

I can appreciate where the appeal is, but there’s typically some onerous element, typically either in inventory management, too many dull or menial recipes, or there simply being too many means to meet your demise. Wytchwood, to me, is a bit of an anomaly, blending together satisfying crafting, plenty of exploration and discovery, a satisfyingly coherent set of management screens, and what turns out to be a pretty compelling story as well. I suppose best categorized as an adventure, you’ll find there are plenty of unusual people to meet, problems to solve, and mysteries involving yourself to unravel. What I really appreciate is that it does all of this in a way that feels highly accessible, focused, and light. Without any real peers that I can think of on the system this is an excellent mix of flavors that I hope a broad audience is able to enjoy.

    I played this game for 5 hours straight for two days now. The first day it crashed twice. The second day it crashed three times. The secondI played this game for 5 hours straight for two days now. The first day it crashed twice. The second day it crashed three times. The second time it erased a hours worth of progress and the third time it crashed and erased three hours worth of progress. The game is super fun, but seems like it's currently unplayable on switch.

    4 crashes in 2 days, each ate hours of progress. Reset to pre-spinning wheel fix (ram) losing fully complete Rat, Cat, and Ram quests. Tried4 crashes in 2 days, each ate hours of progress. Reset to pre-spinning wheel fix (ram) losing fully complete Rat, Cat, and Ram quests. Tried porting to "save" frequently. So crushed because it's a wonderful game, but fully, heartbreakingly unplayable on switch. Expand
