Nine Witches: Family Disruption
What if there an alternate history where some very strange magic was being used during World War 2? And that history also involved a lot of dry and sometimes meta humor? Welcome to the world of Nine Witches: Family Disruption for the Nintendo Switch! Is this alternate history worth checking out or should you stick with the classics?
Nine Witches: Family Disruption is set during a different World War 2 where the bad guys are using black magic and only a professor and his assistant can save the day.
At its core, Nine Witches is an Adventure game. You talk to people, use items, and solve puzzles with very unique abilities. The game does not hold your hand. You will have to look everywhere and we do mean everywhere to figure this game out. Nine Witches is not an Adventure game for newbies to the genre.
Its story is also not to be taken seriously. Its full of dry humor and it even knows that its a video game. Not all of the jokes will land for everyone but its a pretty enjoyable story.
Graphics wise, Nine Witches will remind you of classic Adventure games like King’s Quest and the more recent Thimbleweed Park. Its full of pixels. Its a nice looking game.
Nine Witches controls well too, although it would’ve been great to have seen touch screen controls in handheld mode. Oh well.
Overall, Nine Witches: Family Disruption is for old school Adventure game fans who are looking for something new to play. Its really wonderful that the Adventure genre has made such a big comeback over the last few years. There are so many new Adventure games to play and you should not miss out on this one.
Nine Witches: Family Disruption gets an 8.0 out of 10.
