This was a really cute story! Jastiline is so pretty. I just wish it hadn't ended quite so abruptly - I would've liked to see their routine together after Halloween.
The Witch in the Forest
The Witch in the Forest is about a young woman who lives in the forest and is mystified by all things magical and natural. One day, however, she meets another young woman living deep in the forest- a real witch!
The Witch in the Forest (TWITF) is centered around Fidelia, a somewhat introverted and socially awkward girl who stumbles upon Jastiline's house one day and befriends her. It's a short, 12,000+ word NVL/ADV-style kinetic novel about their lives as they prepare for their favorite holiday, Halloween! This visual novel was made in about 20 days for the Yuri Game Jam 2017.

Hello! :) Why is the Game Jam version way bigger then the 1.4 version of the game?
Hi! The game jam version is bigger because in the full/most recent release of the game, we worked harder on compressing the file size. So while the overall game in 1.4 is bigger in terms of content, the file size is smaller due to us compressing some assets.
