  1. This looks super, the atmosphere is a mix of cute, cozy & fantasy. The music is great too, but the best is the beautiful font. Top!

  2. Yikes, Ms. Avory is talented. Imagine if this had come out in the mid eighties.

  3. If this had come out in the 80's, it would have been a massive hit!

  4. I love her work, it's always amazing! Not only the Briley Witch Chronicles but also her other games, I bought them ALL on

  5. Wow! The first game was absolutely amazing. I never completed it...may have to finish it soon, so I can keep the story going. It's hard to believe this huge game is on a C64. Kodos to Sarah Jane.

  6. AMAZING WOW SUPERLATIVE ATMOSPHERE !!!!!!!! Thanks Sarah !!!! Long Live the Queen !

  7. Wow, I can't wait to play this! And all that work, all that story was crammed into this sequel in such a short time of making it, too! She really went all out :3.

  8. Missed the release window, but bought it as soon as I remembered, despite not yet finishing the first one. You've got to support today's devs!

  9. Looks like a cool, well polished, good looking JRPG. I should check the first one.
