Whitefield Academy of Witchcraft by Eaten By A Grue

The year is 1957, and the place is lush, storm-tossed Stinglash Island, just off the north coast of Washington's Olympic Peninsula. You are Page LeBlanc, witch in training, and you've returned for another year at dear old Whitefield...and it's definitely not your fault you're a day late.

You arrive to find an empty dock. A locked building. And evidence that the day you missed wasn't just another typical first day at school.

Make use of five different magic spells, meet a cast of quirky classmates, and fully explore the Academy grounds...damaging property, unbalancing ecosystems, and eating way too much gingerbread along the way.

This is the beta version of the game; it should be fully playable and possible to complete, but much of the flavor and scenery is yet to be fleshed out, and a lot of things that seem like they should do something don't. I'm continually making small updates and adding more detail. Please report bugs or problems to me, especially if you get completely stuck or something seems illogical or broken -- that way I can make the game the best it can be!

Tips for playing:
To cast a spell on something, use the name of the spell as a verb.
Look at everything, including yourself. Sometimes item descriptions include hints on how to proceed.
You can't die and it should not be possible to put the game in an unwinnable state, so try everything!

This was my first text adventure. I think it was a good start, because everything was well thought out, there were just enough hints to solve the quizzes and it wasn't too hard or too easy.

One of the best text adventure games I've ever played. It really makes you think about the solutions to many problems, and the descriptions are vivid enough that I can see the scenes playing out in my head.

The game was very well written and was done in my favorite format, but I couldn't figure out the library books, or how to memorize yeggle, or where the last food item was at to eat, or how to get past the barricade. Unfortunately I'm giving up as I have to go off and do RL things now. Mostly loved the game, even despite not completing it.

I really enjoyed this game as is. I did get stuck at a couple points, but with some internet help got through the puzzles. There were always clues for the puzzles when I needed them, I just didn't always out two and two together.🤦

It could be updated to provide more throwaway text to let you look at more objects that are mentioned in room descriptions, but there's an impressive amount of text here already. (Found a single typo - "chamber" was used instead of "clamber")

This is an excellent game, by far one of my favorites. However, I do think there ought to be a few more hints. I had to look up how to solve several problems. Other than that, a great game.
Also, I agree with Amadea. It is nice to know there are games out there that don't depend on killing.
