Scarlet Hood and the Wicked Wood is a new story-driven fantasy puzzle adventure game with multiple endings.

As Scarlet, you must relive seven days of misfortune, and make a series of decisions to guide your Munchkin troupe safely out of the Wicked Wood. Experience branching outcomes based on your decisions. Most importantly, immerse yourself in a bewitching story of fantastic adventure!

Featuring Devespresso’s signature manhwa-style with hand-illustrated graphics by Minho Kim and story by T.L Riven, Scarlet Hood and the Wicked Wood is a vibrant puzzle adventure set within an Oz-esque fantasy world. The game features a recurring time loop (think Groundhog Day) that creates unique branching story paths.

Scarlet, the protagonist and a rock diva in the making, awakes in the realm of Glome after being flung over by a rogue tornado. She discovers a vibrant world brimming with magic, beauty, and artifacts from a mysterious bygone culture. Her strange journey begins when she takes up the mantle of the Red Witch and leads a troupe of Munchkins through the forbidden Wicked Wood. In a world full of riddles and wonders, she encounters witches, tin knights, talking beasts, monsters, and many fearsome creatures to overcome.

The fledgling witch soon discovers a Recursion Hex has her reliving the same day. However, each death presents new opportunities to branch the adventure in exciting new ways. Ultimately, her decisions lead to multiple endings. In the deep wood, where a bad hungry wolf roams and a wicked witch casts her evil spells, Scarlet must rely on her wits and a small fox, acting as her pathfinder, to overcome the disasters that await her at every turn.

Scarlet Hood And The Wicked Wood will be coming to Steam Early Access in February 10, 2021.

The initial launch will reveal the first four chapters of the game, followed by several updates including a content update with additional chapters in late February.

The final chapter, featuring multiple endings, will arrive with the official release scheduled for March.

Key Features:

  • Survive a narrative time-loop
  • Solve ridiculous puzzles
  • Follow your own multi-path story
  • Unlock multiple endings based on your decisions
  • Ogle the hand-illustrated graphics
  • Use Scarlet's witching skills to avoid detection

Scarlet Hood And The Wicked Wood will be coming to PC (Steam) in March, 2021.
