New Witchbrook screenshots reveal a new visual style
Today, Chucklefish has revealed some new screenshots and a new look for magic school simulation game Witchbrook. It now features as isometric perspective style, with the colorful pixel art we've come to expect from the studio.
Witchbrook has been in the makings for several years. We reported on it back in 2017 before it had an official title and before a visual style shift. As stated on the company's FAQ page, Chucklefish prides itself on being a zero crunch studio and acknowledges that development might take more time. No release window or even platforms have been given for the game as the team continues to work on it.

After the success of our first game Starbound, the Chucklefish team wanted to let their creativity flow, and began an internal pitching process where anybody could propose a new concept – one of which became our strategy game Wargroove, and another was Witchbrook! The concept of a magical school simulation game sparked the excitement of the whole development team, and Witchbrook soon became a core project.
