We have reached out to the developers of Little Witch in the Woods, and here is what they would share!
We just can’t get enough of Little Witch in the Woods, the most adorable sim-life RPG currently in the works by Sunny Side Up Games. Given the lovely response from the community, we decided to reach out to the developers to see how much they would be willing to share about their ultra-magical and super cute game. They agreed to share their most valuable time with us, to let us get a closer look.
We would like to mention that Little Witch in the Woods is still currently in development, and any details about the game are subject to change. We would also like to mention that, seeing as how the Sunny Side Up studio is located in South Korea, there was a bit of a language barrier between interviewer and interviewee.
Who is the team at Sunny Side Up games, and what are your favorite games?
‘Sunny Side Up’ is a game development team. We are developing game in South Korea and consist of 4 members. Since we’re a small team, each person has been doing many things. There are a lot of difficulties, but we feel happiness because we are making the game to have been dreamed. We hope game players love our game too.

What sort of games inspired the creation of Little Witch in the Woods?
The first time we had idea “What happens if we add witch’s story to ‘Stardew valley’?” Furthermore, we wanted to give players a chance to experience the daily life of a witch. Since we thought we needed more other things to do that, we played a lot of games. Among so many games, Animal crossing inspired and helpful for making idea.
What platforms do you intend the game to be on?
We plan to release ‘Little Witch in the Woods’ on Steam. We are trying to release Nintendo Switch and PS4 if it can.
Do you have any idea as to a release date?
It is currently developing the game with a goal of releasing it in fall of 2020. For those of you waiting, it is also considering releasing the demo version earlier (it’s not yet confirmed).
What are your favorite unique additions to the game so far?
It may sound funny, but you know the parts where each user feels unique will be different.
We don’t focus on function. Sunny Side up is developing the game with a focus on the emotions and experiences that players can feel.
If someone can feel the emotion that we’re trying to convey in any part of the video game, that very part will be a unique part to the player.
Do you plan for there to be any sort of online functionality Little Witch in the Woods?
Currently, only a single play version is planned.
If the game goes well and many game users want it, we’d like to add online functionality later.
