Witchfire Free _TOP_ Download
Witchfire takes place roughly during the period of the witch hunts, but witches are real and dangerous. Caught in a war between the Church and Witches, you play as a Preyer, an elite church Witch Hunter who commited a grave sin, but instead of being sent to Hell, was given a chance to atone by wandering the Earth, making use of forbidden pagan magic and consuming witchfire in order to stay alive.

Dark Fantasy: The game takes place during a war between the Church and Witches, a conflict of the Evil Versus Evil variety. The Preyer fights "willingly" on the side of the Church as an immortal witch hunter, being that he commited a grave sin as was given the choice of either going to hell or roaming the Earth consuming witchfire in order to remain alive. The game world is also littered with hanged corpses, collapsing villages and castles and the revived church soldiers that now serve as the Witch's undead goons.
Depleted Phlebotinum Shells: The game's signature hand cannon has crosses etched into the back of the bullets, their glow indicates some form of enchantment.
Fantastic Firearms: Though the game takes place during the time of the witch hunts, it features magic powered Second World War firearms.
Fackler Scale of FPS Realism: Witchfire sits comfortably in the Semi-Classic category, sharing many staple mechanics of more modern games such as sprinting and aiming down sights that set it apart from the developer's previous work with Classic shooters Painkiller and Bulletstorm, while adhering to it's dark fantasy setting, such as featuring magic spells, teleport dodging and magic powered weapons far more advanced that what is typical of the game's time period.
Gaslamp Fantasy: By the developer's own admission. Somewhat contrary to the game's mostly Sword and Sorcery look and feel and the witch hunt period theming, it features magic powered Second World War firearms, making it Gaslamp by definition, though a rather down played take on the genre.
Glowing Eyelights of Undeath: The game's undead enemies all have magic glowing eyes, caused by the Witch's spell and the witchfire flowing within them.
Hand Cannon: What have been shown off so far include the game's signature revolver, which has glowing crosses engraved on the back of the cartridges and a fan firing revolver that gets so hot it glows.
Hell-Bent for Leather: The Preyer is dressed head to toe in brown leather, with the occasional metal accents, such as adornments to his coat, belt buckles and his signature skull mask. As can be seen here, he sports leather boots, pants, a duster, gloves and even a capotain (the stereotypical witch hunter hat), giving him the Coat, Hat, Mask setup.
Keystone Army: In a short story feature on the developer's blog, the Preyer claims that the undead goons will be trapped in immortality until the Witch is defeated. "There was nothing I could do for the bandit leader now. As long as the witch was alive, he would continue to reanimate. From witchfire he had come, to witchfire he would return."
Mage Marksman: The preyer uses both magic powered firearms and spells.
Nightmare Face: The Preyer hints at this in a short story feature on the developer's blog. When told to remove his mask, he replies: "I wouldn't recommend it. The sight of my face can never be forgotten. Or endured. [...]"
Night of the Living Mooks: The enemies of the game are -or rather, used to be- soldiers of the Church, sent to fight the Witch in her territory, but have since been killed and reanimated by her magic as her personal witchfire-filled army, which will continue to be reanimated until she is defeated.
Recoiled Across the Room: A shotgun featured in trailers and various clips is shown to fling the Preyer backwards in a shockwave when fired.
Warrior Undead: Many of the Witch's goons, though undead, are still proficient with guns, including several knightly-behemoth types using cannons and blunderbusses, as well as sniper enemies. In addition, many other enemy types use magic. Not even the basic enemy is a pushover.
Witch Hunt: The game's setting takes place during a massive conflict between the Church and Witches, which seems to be of the Evil Versus Evil variety. Specifically, the game is set on an island that has been taken over by an abnormally powerful Witch that the Church's army has been largely uneffective against, prompting them to send in [The Witch Hunter the Preyer].
