Witchcraft was shunned in medieval era. Almost all witches are hunted and killed by the clergy. Of course, that was the medieval times. Surprisingly, witches are on the rise once again in the modern times. People are leaving Abrahamic religions and moving back to the old pagan ways, embracing harmony with nature. Obviously, witchcraft can be used for sinister purposes. However, majority of witches avoid harming others. After all, all magic teachings forbid doing harm.
By the way, almost all witch games are super cute, wholesome, friendly, and fun! That’s why I love them.

2. Little Witch in the Woods
Little Witch in the Woods is a cute RPG featuring the story of an apprentice witch. You explore the mystical forest, help the residents, and experience the daily life of a witch.

8. Dragon Age Origins

Both Sims 4 and Sims Medieval have witchcraft in them. For those who don’t know, The Sims is a real life themed RPG franchise.
The Sims 4 is free to play on Steam. However, in order to become a spellcaster / witch in it, you need to buy the Realm of Magic DLC. Once you got the DLC, you can dress your sim as a witch, learn countless spells, fly to places with your broom, and conjure a familiar.
The Sims Medieval is a bit different. It’s a story-oriented Sims spinoff game. You play as a medieval hero in it. There 10 hero classes, one of which is a Wizard. It’s fun to play as court wizard in medieval times. Reminds me of the Arthur / Merlin tales.
You can literally become anything in Skyrim including a witch. The vanilla game already has alchemy, elemental magic, enchanting, alteration, and restoration spells. Mage’s guild is also a perfect start for a witch playthrough.
