Here is an overview of the game, via CFK:


A witch named Wicce was living with her daughter in a house standing in the deep forest.

One day, her daughter went on an errand but didn’t come back even after the sun set on the horizon.

So Wicce headed to the town to look for her daughter.

What she didn’t expect to see was the town filled with people fallen by disease, and fiends letting out foul aura!

Searching for the dear girl, Wicce fights the fiends and cures people.

But the Pope, having heard of her actions, sees Wicce as the one who caused the epidemic…
