This game is still being continously updated!
4/4- Patched CGs, 2  new tracks and extra dialouges!  


Deep within the forest there is a grove
where the tree branches grasp and claw at your neck,
and the air is a thick miasma choking the very life out of you.
In the center of the grove lies the Witch’s House: arrogant, mighty, and wretched.


Magnolia is a witch who lives with her son in the forest but after a recent break-in, there's clearly more to this story to be told. A horror RPGmaker game where you're the witch trying to get these intruders out of your damn house. 


- Approximately half-hour to 1 hour of playtime. 
- 2 endings. 
- Cartoon blood and violence.
- Deals with topics of human experimentation and complicated family drama.
- Warning for some loud sounds and flashing images. 


Check out the soundtrack!
LGM is so cool and awesome and handsome and good at making music and he is an awesome goblin.

I keep having just enough time to get into it before the game freezes and I have to refresh the page, losing all my progress :(

Great game! Love the story and the art but it's too short T-T! I'm really looking forward to more games like this!

KInda late to the party sadge, but nonetheless Pretty short and amazing game! Both magnolia and Mint are so cute! collecting the diary pieces grows the character more. and you know what , nice book boobaaaa #malemoment
But imo the order in which the lore is revealed are kinda give it away too soon tho
other than that the stroy is gewd 10/10 will show dead bodies to ma kids again

amazing game! loved the dynamic between magnolia and mint and how she did all she could to raise him as a normal kid T_T  also love the cat beanie would definitely wear it too

God forbid women do anything :U

I absolutely adored the perspective of us being the serial killer for once!

i like my child, but not as much as my LASAGNA 

(+1)

i fucking loved this !!! 

(+1)

this is so good! I love the style and its quality is pretty good ^^ only odd occurance I had was the books in the starting room radomly fell off the shelf mid walk when the Someones been in here dialog popped up, tho it is funny with Mints idea of ghosts so if it were a bug id keep it for that reason lol

its giving fullmetal alchemist

(1 edit) (+1)(-1)

this was so interesting. so intriguing and unsettling in such a short game! really glad i played. is it still being worked on? would love to see more :D

(+4)

I too would kill for Mint. This was great and I loved the character designs

(+3)

I love Mint's and Magnolia's dynamic!! this game is so cute and so morally dubious which is my beloved!!! ty and all the other creators so much for this!!!

(+5)

OH MY GOD, I LOVED THIS!! I absolutely fell in love with our adorable little mint!! The mother-son relationship (even with the gross stuff) is so cute!

(+1)

i really loved playing this game!!

(1 edit)

this might be a little weird but my saved files from the game Mistrick by Hotage are also in this game's save files? can someone tell me what's going on?

(+2)

It's because they're both web rpgmaker games and the save files of those gets mixed up sometimes,  I sometimes have saves from other games pop up too. 

(+7)

Did i just shoot my ex wife (10/10)

(+1)

The game has such a unique and well written storyline! It was a lovely game to play through, and I enjoyed getting both of the endings with little to no problems. The scenery and art were especially beautiful, and I love Mint with all my heart. :)

I got stuck in the room before the basement trying to get ending b

Played through the game around a week or two ago with a friend of mine. The game's warm color palette is lovely to look at as well as the character designs! Also lesbians.

Very tragic and dark but so sweet. Is a short story but it does great with what it has.

This is wonderful!

a Spanish version would be nice. If you like it, I could even help you

thats true i also could help

very nice! buuut im also stuck after finding the detective girl-

i dont wanna give spoilers out there

Played your game a few weeks ago, fast forward to today and I'm working very hard on designing in RPG Maker for the first time ever, with a bucket full of purchased plugins and assets in tow...
Thanks for creating a monster :P   :)
Great work on the game!

very short but i liked the story it told very much! would love to see more of these two

i loved it! clicking on this game and reading the description i wasn't expecting the story to go that way and it was awesome! i can tell i'll be thinking about this game for a long time

(+1)

I gotta say, I'm only 20 minutes in and this game has me wowed with everything. I might just have to finish it to the end...

Just curious, regarding the lgbtqia tag, which characters are lgbt if there are any? 

(+7)

The main character is lesbian and has an ex-wife! Without spoiling too much, it is tied to the plot of the game. 

Hello Puchi, I am a game localization student, and I was wondering if it's okay for me to translate your game to Brazilian Portuguese! This is just to help me practice translation and to reach out more players out there!

I love your game so so much! Even if it's a short game, the story was really good. I love the characters, the music and the artstyle also.

(+1)

Definitely one of the best and most enjoyable indie games I've played in a long time! While I personally am way too soft for your typical horror and gorey game, this hit just the right spot of it being creepy, but not in an off putting way. If anything it's the perfect blend of really nice fun dialogue, details and suspence on top of very cute artwork and a great soundtrack! I also greatly appreciate the two different endings based on your choices.  I'm genuinely excited to see what's next.

You really should be proud of yourself! <3

First playthrough, I guess my stubborn self has a knack for finding bugs !

(+2)

The same bug made Mint follow Magnolia in one of the flashbacks, which was really funny 

the games rlly cool in my opinion, a little short but thats not rlly a problem 2 me. i got both endings and loved both. good job!! (≧▽≦)

(+2)

The game is awesome! I got ending A but i can't take ending B for some reason, i watched on YouTube but it didn't help, can someone give me a hint how i can get ending B? 

(+2)

There's a walkthrough for both endings! https://puchidesign.itch.io/symbiosis/devlog/365695/symbiosis-walkthrough-faq
