Cooking meets metroidvania platformer 'Magical Delicacy' heading to Xbox One, Xbox Series and PC next year!

In this Metroidvania-inspired wholesome cooking game, players will take on the role of Flora, a young witch who cooks magical delicacies from a vast collection of ingredients in her shop. Explore the unfamiliar town of Grat and deliver these tasty treats to the townsfolk, learn new ways to traverse, discover secrets, and experience a unique and witchy world one dish at a time.

Playing as protagonist Flora — a young witch who journeys to a new town in order to grow her magical skills — you’ll encounter a host of interesting pathfinders that populate the seaside town of Grat, including the witches who will help (or hinder) Flora on her journey.

As you enter the bustling adventurer harbor town of Grat, you will stumble upon two witch covens operating as the guardians of magic: the Shena Circle and the Keskar Dawn. Their goals align, but their beliefs and ways of handling situations could not be more different, resulting in an ongoing rivalry between the two groups.

The Shena Circle is a coven of witches who believe the river that runs through the island where Grat is located is the sole sacred source of the Mist, which allows them to wield water-based magic. These witches believe everything coming from the Mist must be accepted as a nourishing gift to the greater good of the town.

On the other hand, The Keskar Dawn is a group of vigilante magi who seek to protect magical beings and oppose the increased research by adventures and academics alike in their safe haven, the river’s wellspring. The Keskar Dawn wields umbral magic and believes leaving the river wellspring untouched will be the best for Grat.

As Flora becomes more familiar with Grat, she will meet the Shenai witch, Cassia, and the Keskar magus, Tauno, who both have much to teach her. Will their rivalry get in the way of Flora’s goals?
