Dark Waters: Gino and the Witch of the Black Swamp is a horror-themed visual novel in which the player spends three (?) nights in the company of the swamp witch, Cuca Rivers. Things start uneventfully for you but eventually take a strange turn, and the proof of the supernatural you've sought out your entire life may come at a steep price.

The game is roughly 1-2 hours long (depending on reading speed) and contains three NSFW scenes, as well as two different endings.

*** WARNING: Dark Waters contains one scene of graphic violence which sensitive people may consider traumatizing--reader discretion is advised. ***

You are Gino Castallo, a young man tortured by his own mundane existence. Your off hours are occupied reading books about urban legends and going on expeditions to the sites of alleged hauntings. There has to be more to life than... this, right?

However, you always seem to end up empty-handed, and today is no different. But this time you stumble upon a swamp during the long trek home from yet another pointless journey. A woman who claims to be some kind of benevolent witch offers to show you her magic.

This is the proof you've been waiting for... isn't it?

"Dark Waters: Gino and the Witch of the Black Swamp" is the first VN published by Outis Media in over ten years, the previous game being "The Dandelion Girl: Don't You Remember Me?"

The good/better ending was fairly disappointing and anticlimactic, I was genuinely saddened to find out that you didn't even have any scenes or CGs for it (and was even more saddened to go back to the moment of choice and find out you DID have a scene for the "first" ending, which is fairly telling about your priorities).

(Edited, in hindsight this is still a good story and worth the purchase.)

We're sorry this wasn't your cup of tea. We've done our best with our limited budget, and so some areas of the game are slimmer than others. Thanks for playing, nonetheless.

(+1)

That is more than fair, my apologies for being snobbish. I recognise that the reason I was upset was precisely because the story did resonate with me, and it hit all the right notes as a tragedy and for that reason I don't regret the purchase, so thank you for that.

To leave a small review its a nice little game with good art and some well written story to bridge that art. Characters are fun to learn about whether it be the witch or the main character. Just a really solid little porn game.

Regarding the non-steam version, how do we go about getting that? I am trying to install my copy through ITCH, but am having no such luck. It cannot even find the file.

It's a very nice game, rare occasion where I came for the lewder stuff but actually stuck around for the story, it was really intriguing. The sound design is also very good, bar some of the noises during lewder stuff being a little jarring at times.

Also quick question, I got both endings, but there's no ending checkmark on Ending 1. I don't know if anything will happen if I get both, but I'm just curious if that's a bug or if I got something wrong. Don't really know who I'm asking this to per se, but if anyone knows what's up, that'd be nice, since I want to get as much out of this game as possible!

Thank you for your kind words! We put a lot of effort into the story, so it's a relief to hear people stuck around for it. Lewd SFX were a bit strange to implement, and we were honestly torn on leaving them out or putting them in.

Unfortunately there is a bug in the engine that causes those checks to be mismatched. We're still trying to patch it out, but as we've said in our dev log we won't be using this engine again moving forward as it's very, very finnicky with details like that. If you've received both endings, that's all of the story Dark Waters has to offer. We're glad you enjoyed your short story in Cuca's swamp, be sure to redeem your complementary Steam key and leave us a review if it's not too much trouble. <3

Thanks again!

Man this is great, A game with a Dragon waifu Witch!? 10 out of 10!

Having trouble getting the Steam key, it just keeps linking me to the same page over and over.

tachtical . here.

I seem to be having the same issue. 

Hi there! We're currently working with admins to fix the issue with key groups that's causing this problem. Very sorry for the inconvenience, this is our first time releasing like this and we're working on getting it resolved immediately. Thank you for your patience.

are we going to be notified when the issue is resolved? or do we have to check ourselves every so often?

(+2)

I will be sure to post a dev log once this is resolved. If that doesn't happen in the next few days, I'll be sure to reach out to everyone and give them a Steam key manually.

Greetings. How do I redeem this game on Steam, again? It seems like all I can do is recursively redeem more copies of the game on itch.io.

This is an issue with key groups that we're currently working with admins to resolve. Thanks for your patience, and sorry for the trouble.

but the game is free?

(+1)

The demo is free. The full game (listed as a separate item when you click 'Download Now') is not. Sorry for the confusion!

(+1)(-13)

Android version now DEV.or Ur gay and you cannot do anything about Ur mom being gay if Ur not doing this on android,and I want it to be free.

This was good. Short, but convincing. And also very sad... I guess despite appearances, Cuca was not a good witch after all? (Or maybe she has a split personality?) ._.

(+1)

Thank you. The ending leaves room for interpretation, but we're glad you enjoyed it.

If I purchase the game here (at this moment), would I receive a Steam Key for it? It's fine either way, though I'll just buy it on Steam when it comes out there.
Silver hair is best hair color don't @ me

You will receive a key redeemable on Steam when you purchase this game, yes. If upon the game's Steam release you have any issue with that key, feel free to reach out to us and we will rectify the situation.

Aye aye then. Purchased. Best of luck with your future projects!

For the steam version how much do you plan on pricing the game?

(+1)

We're still working out the details on that one. Please stay tuned.

Only one i seem interested in hummm n didn't get the demo do I won't be spoil
