Being a witch seems like it comes with some handy magical powers, but when you have to hide them from your fellow campers while also trying to make friends, enjoy activities, and solve mysteries, things can get a little hairy in adorable adventure game Camp W.
As a little witch at her first sleepaway camp, things are probably stressful enough, but for whatever reason, you’re being sent to a camp for regular humans who have long forgotten what magic is. As such, you’ll want to deal with awkward friendships, trouble with bullies, and weird events without making your powers known, so you’ll have to carefully choose when to make use of your magic abilities. These do make things easier, but only if you don’t get seen using them. Camp life is hard enough without folks seeing you talking to a squirrel, after all.
Not that when and where to use magic is your only choice. You have to pick which activities to take part in with Camp W, as well as who you spend your time with. You can’t become friends with everyone, so you’ll want to pick your pals carefully. On top of this, there are some mysteries surrounding the camp you can solve if you dedicate the time and effort to them, as well as a number of collectibles to track down. Players only have time for a handful of activities during each run, so they’ll have to explore the story in various ways to find all the game has to offer. Still, Camp W‘s charming story of trying to fit in when you’re different is one that’s well worth a few runs.
Camp W is available for $12.99 on Steam. For more information on the game and developer Psyop, you can head to the game’s site or follow them on Facebook, YouTube, Tumblr, and Twitter.
