A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Abandoned by his previous owner, a black cat is all alone and caught in the rain, cold and hungry. A young girl named Aria finds the cat, takes him in as her own, and names him Whiskers. Turns out, Aria is a witch in training! However, she's still new to magic, so her mother refuses to let her keep him as her familiar. So, Aria and her mother work out a deal: if Aria can prove herself to be responsible, she can keep Whiskers and make him her familiar once she's more experienced. Will Aria prove herself? Will Whiskers get a good home?


  • A short and sweet story about a witch and her cat!
  • Schedule Aria and Whiskers's day by distributing their Energy Points into different tasks.
  • Be careful! They might get fatigued if they do too much work the day before!

This game was originally created for NaNoRenO 2018. Check out the game's game jam entry page here.

I just finished playing! The game was really charming, and I think the really thick lineart style and soft colours helped contribute to that feeling.

The way stat attribution and growth worked in this game was really interesting as well. I've never really seen a game do it like that before, but I might try out something like that in the future. It was really creative :D 

Great work!

Thank you so much! To be honest, I wasn't sure how well received this game would be since it was the first time I completed making a game with Ren'Py, but I'm really glad you liked it! :D
