Yes I'm planning on doing a way longer version in the future, so hopefully I'll be able to ~
Thank you again for the kind words and for playing✨

ohh this is SO cute!! i'm so pumped for more :D

Thank you ! I can't wait to have time to work more on the next version✦

I loved it! cant wait for more :)

Thank you ! And I can't wait to work on more✦

Good luck with it! I'm sure it will be wonderfull!

hello hello, i'm looking forward to it~~

will there be more


I'd say yes, there will be more ~
At least I'm planning on making a continuation, I just don't know when I'll be able to work on it 🌼

would my save be usable when it happens


It should be, yes ~
But I'm also thinking of redoing the game from scratch so it might become not accurate anymore if I decide to change the gameplay/prologue in the future x)

Hello ~
I'm not really good at explaining things, but I'll try my best !

First you have to download the game's .zip which is just above the comments section (careful not to click the mac button).
Once your .zip is downloaded, you have to "de-zip" it by right clicking on it, then use your archives' software to extract the .exe
I'm only familiar with 7Zip and I don't really know how it works with other softwares, sorry...
Though if you are using 7zip as well :

1. Right click on the .zip that you just downloaded
2. Mouse over 7-zip, then "Extract to TWaHA"
3. Once done, double click the new file. It has the same name than the previous file that you downloaded, except it's not a .zip anymore
4. Double click "TWaHA.exe" and voilà ! You should be able to run the game and play it ~

I hope you'll enjoy ❤


This was a sweet and short story. I hope you don't mind, but I went through some of the game folders and found that there are unused assets...

I wouldn't mind if there was a continuation to the current storyline, wink wink, nudge nudge XD

But nah, it's not necessary. Game was great, thank you for this little adorable journey. Wish our MC could have smooched one of the magical creatures, but I guess that's an ache I shall have to live with XD

Hope you have a nice week!

Thank you for the kind words, I'm happy you liked the game❤
Don't worry, I don't mind people going trhough the folders (but at their own risk, since they might end up being spoiled) ~
I'm also happy you want a continuation, actually I'm planning on making a bigger game out of this little one. I just don't have any clue when I'll be able to work on it since I'm already super busy with Colors of Fate x)
But this is something I'm considering and who knows...maybe there will be more magical/"monster" creatures and that you even might be able to smooch them in the future ✦

Am definitely holding out for the smooches, creator!! Hehe, jkjk. This world is given such a soft and homely feeling because of your art that romance just doesn't feel like a necessary factor for me. So thank you for even listening to my opinions XD Hope you have a nice week, creator! Definitely good luck with your other projects<3

so cute

Thank you, happy you like it✦

Super sweet and one of a special kind...  Makes me wish there was more to it, but I understand if that can't happen.  Thank you, it made me smile more than once.  :D


Thank you for the kind words, I'm happy it made you smile❤


Hello and congratulations on the submission and release for the Otome Jam! I've made a playthrough for Zai's route and would be working on the Mir's route too! The game was a great experience and everyone is so so cute! Short sweet and leaving for more! Like, what will their adventures in the future be? I may or may not laugh too much at some of the dialogue in the game >w<


the second this gets a kickstarter, I'm giving you all my money.


Thank you ! I'm not sure I will launch a Kickstarter for this game in the future, but the thought of you wanting to support it touched me a lot ! Thank you for the kind words and I'm happy you like the game❤✦


so like i did the mir part and when it ended i thought the zai on the title screen was me at the end but i streamed me playing the game on my twitch salty_saltbubbles and it was really funny i loved it!!! :) and the art style is so cute and amazing 10/10 game!!


and im gonna do the Zai route in another stream after my stream in thirty minutes  :)


Thank you so much for playing and loving the game ! ❤
I started watching your stream, but unfortunately I couldn't hear your voice as it seems your microphone was way lower than the game's music (> o <)


oh darn i may have had to adjust it but ill make sure to do so when play the Zai route😋 thank you for letting me know! 

A Short and Sweet Visual Novel with Fantasy Theme, have a different flavor because of that from the other visual novel you've made I played. I see why you decided to expand it on Twitter, this is indeed a delightful one and I would love to see more.

Either way, exploring Zai route~

After that later I'm going to check Mir route~~~


Thank you for the kind words, I hope you'll enjoy/you are enjoying this little project❤
And thank you once again for your time recording a let's play about it, I'll watch it as soon as possible ! ✦

Oh I am enjoying it~


Happy you do ! I just watched your let's play of Zai during my break and I can't wait for Mir ! (^ O^)/

Mir Route!

It seems both Zai and Mir is following a personality archetype (if that's the word) where one is timid and the other is assertive. I find that it feels like Mir dialogue on the cottage seems kinda circling around (?), like it feels instead of going to the point it's stretches. Also I find that's a lot of flirty innuendo here and there~

Thank you for loving this small little game ! ❤
I got attached to the character along the way of making the project, so I'm thinking of doign more with it ine the future ✦

The art is so cute 😭💕💕💕 such a dream aesthetic

Thank you, happy you like the art !❤

Love it!  I covered your game in the first part of my Otome Jam reviews.  You can see it starting at 1:31. 

Thank you so much for covering the game, I'm happy you liked it !❤
I hope to make it a longer project in the future✦

Hooray! :D

Cute art, it made my day! Thank you so much for this lovely game !

Thanks to you for loving it, I'm happy it made you happy ! ❤

This was so cozy! <3 I liked Mir the best. I hope you make more games with this art style! I wish the story was longer, because I want to know more about the characters. :)


Thank you for your kind comment ! ❤
I do plan to make more games with cute art style, as really like to draw in this style, and I also thinking of maybe making the game longer in the future. I don't know when, but I'm seriously thinking about it, so don't hesitate to keep an eye on the twitter and maybe join the discord server for future updates ✦
Thank you again for your kind words ~

So incredibly cute that my heart just melted looking at the art before I even read a word of the story x3 If I had to pick a favourite, I think it would have to be Zai, but the whole thing was just totally adorable ^-^


Aww thank you ! I'm happy I was able to melt your heart with the art ! I really like drawing in a cute style, so it's a huge compliment from you ! Thank you ❤
Don't tell Mir, but I think Zai is also my favorite (> w <)/

this game is so cool n cute (loved the music, characters, storyline n literally everything) prolly gonna check your other productions (or games i suppose) anyhow u guys did great :D


Thank you so much, it makes me really happy !✦
My first visual novel is called "Fujiwara Bittersweet" and is much longer than "The Witch and Her Assistant".
A remake is planned though and will be released in the future, so don't hesitate to join the Discord server or lurk on the twitter here for more updates ~

Thank you again for the kind words, it means a lot for me❤

omg i'm totally gonna check those out!! keep doing what you're doing <33

Thank you very much for creating this game. It really is everything look for in a visual novel and here it is. It has never happened to me that one that seems made to perfectly fit my tastes. Your effort is invaluable, you have truly created a wonder. I love this game!!!! <3.

Thank you so much for your kind words !❤
Although it's a really short project made for a jam, I had so much fun making it and got really attached to the characters, so it means a lot for me that you liked it this much as well ! Thank you again !✦

I loved the cute atmosphere of the game, the characters are extremely likeable <3 And it's all augmented by the art style, music, awesome writing - great job!
I hope you'll have time and desire to work with this world some more in the future :)


Thank you so much ! I'm happy you liked the game and enjoyed its atmosphere and art, I had fun woring on it ✦

I also hope I'll have time in the future to develop more this world and its characters in the future, as I got really attached to it (> w <)

Thank you again for the kind words, it really motivates me !❤ 


Ah, this was adorable. Im a sucker for shy guys and your games never disappoint haha, I was so sad it ended so quickly- which in a way is a good thing, it means this story was entertaining! Keep up the good work, make sure to take breaks!


Thank you, I'm happy you liked it even though it was really short ! It makes me happy (> w <)/❤
Even me the dev, I find the project too small...So hopefully I'll be able to make something more in the future ~
Thank you again for your kind words (and don't worry, I'll make sure to rest properly) ✦


This is so cute!!!!!!!! I love the characters <3 <3 <3


Thank you so much for loving the characters this much and finding them cute, it makes me really happy ! (^ O^)/❤

Thank you, I'm happy you liked the characters and their backstories !❤

To tell you the truth...I feel a bit frustrated myself that the game stops where it currently stop, and I was thinking of maybe doing something more with it later, when I have time and that I'm done with my other projects ~

But until then...thank you again for your kind words !★
