Cologne, April 8, 2021 - Publisher Headup and the developer Devespresso Games announce the official release of Scarlet Hood and the Wicked Wood for Steam, GOG and the Epic Games Store today. The game is available for PC, Mac and Linux platforms for 14.99 USD / 14.99 € / 11.99 GBP with 15% discount at launch.
 
Scarlet Hood and the Wicked Wood is a light-hearted puzzle solving adventure with many twists and turns. Developed by Devespresso, renowned for their signature hand-illustrated graphics and the popular ‘The Coma’ series and ‘Vambrace: Cold Soul’, the game features unique branching story paths with several endings and recurring time loop (think Groundhog Day).
 
Scarlet, an aspiring singer, is caught in a powerful tornado, and wakes up in the mysterious realm of Glome - a lush, vibrant world brimming with magic, beauty, and artifacts from a bygone culture. There she meets a hapless Munchkin caravan who depend on her for guidance through the perilous Wicked Wood, guarded by the cantankerous witch, LeFaba. To help them, Scarlet must take on the mantle of the Red Witch and learn to wield the powerful Womping Stick. While she may be completely outmatched, Scarlet soon learns a recursion hex has her reliving the same day. Can she use her newfound powers and the knowledge gained from her previous lives to outwit LeFaba and lead the troupe to safety?
 
The Deluxe Edition of the game will come with two digital artbooks - one containing illustrations and in-game art, the other featuring a photography from the making of Scarlet Hood’s live-action trailer. This package will also include the game’s original jazz soundtrack. The Deluxe Edition is available for 17.61 USD / 17.61 € / 14.09 GBP.
 
Scarlet Hood and the Wicked Wood is available in nine languages; English, Korean, German, French, Ukrainian, Russian, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, and Spanish.
