Songs Of Glimmerwick Is The Next Game From The Makers of Eastshade

For no reason in particular (ahem), a lot of us have been searching for a new world of magic over these past few years. Luckily for us, there’s Witchbrook, and Wytchwood, and Ikenfell, and no shortage of other learn-how-to-do-witchcraft games; now, from the creators of gorgeous painting game Eastshade, there’s Songs of Glimmerwick.

Songs of Glimmerwick is an RPG about attending a school of witchcraft and wizardry where spells are cast through music. Different songs have different effects: you can grow a magical garden, enchant tools, talk to frogs, and commune with the trees; when you’re not messing with the natural order of things, you can also take some time away from your studies to race moths, collect shells, join after-school clubs, and go on expeditions.

The game is also fully voice-acted, and many of the characters have rich lives filled with secrets ready for you to discover. You can befriend both classmates and townsfolk, and even trade with them, help them, and go on quests for them. There is also a customisable character creator, so you can make your little mage look just like you.

Much like a farming simulator, Songs of Glimmerwick has an entire year of seasons, festivals, and stories that will unfold over the months. Gardening is also an integral part of the story, and there are many things you’ll be unable to discover without getting your greenfingers a little dirty.

On the game’s Steam page, the planned release date is Q3 2023 — between July and September. We have no word on whether that will also be the date for console release, but console release is planned, at least.

IGN has an exclusive interview with the developers that goes deeper into the mechanics and design of the game, if you’re interested!
