A downloadable visual novel for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Zerlinda was a child when she escaped the witch trials that robbed her of her mother. She has lived as a recluse ever since, enjoying her garden and the company of her familiar.

When an intruder manages to breach the barriers around her woods, Zerlinda realizes just how deep her scars run and how fragile her inner peace is.

Also, the intruder is a princess.

A strong-willed princess who refuses to be married off and wants to live just like Zerlinda does: freely.


Zerlinda embraces being a witch of the wilds, and enjoys delicacies like moss infusions and pickled flower bulbs. She has a soft spot for owlets—her familiar regularly uses this fact to his advantage.

Eugenie Priscilla Raisa is the eleventh in line for the throne, but she thinks of her royal blood as an inconvenienceHer days in the palace were spent listening to wandering bards and minstrels while avoiding the etiquette intructor.

Spoon has been Zerlinda's familiar for decades. He uses a glamour to make himself look like a tiny round owlet; his cute appearance lets him get away with almost anything.

I enoyed the Game untill:

This Happens when you get to the point where the Spell fails and you cant get her to see your past (not enough trust propably)

Than you for the bug report! I pushed an updated build that should fix that crash.

Works! Thank you and holly Hell that was fast ^^

(2 edits)

Really enjoyed this ^.^

Just so you know, the fire cg does not work properly. It does not appear in the story or in the cg gallery. Here is a screenshot of the error message it shows during the story.

Edit: Using version 2.4.6 btw. The other two cgs work fine and appear in gallery

Thank you for the bug report! It should be fixed in the new version we just pushed online.

We're happy you liked the game :D

Lovely game, I enjoyed it a lot. I didn't expect a psychological component. 2 things though: the gallery doesn't seem to unlock images and...does this have bad/tragic endings? Because I got 2 happy endings and don't want to ruin the fuzzy feeling.

Thank you for the comment! We're happy you liked the game :) 

We just pushed an update with a gallery fix and some more improvements.

The game has one bad ending with a CG and one bad ending that can be triggered when rage is too high. 

Ok. One last thing: the ending where the girls stay together in the woods after using the mega spell has no CG, correct?

Correct! :)


I wrote a small review for Crown Cauldron here, but now it's gone... There was a reply from Foleso, but now I can't read it anymore. Have you merged some pages or deleted / re-created them?

Hello! Yes, we are going to use this page from now on. I put the old page online temporarily so you can read the reply.

Alright, I've read it! :) Thank you!
