Headup announced that the Devespresso-developed adventure puzzle game Scarlet Hood and the Wicked Wood won’t launch onto Steam Early Access. Instead, the game will have a full launch on April 8, 2021.
Later today, the game will receive a free demo as part of the Steam Game Festival 2021 to allow players to try it early.
Scarlet Hood and the Wicked Wood will feature the developer’s hand-illustrated graphics in their previous titles, The Coma, from designer Minho Kim with a story by T.L. Riven. The game is set in an Oz-like fantasy world where the characters are stuck in a time loop that creates branching pather.
Players assume the role of Scarlet, who awakes in the realm of Gloome after being caught in a tornado. She explores the magical region to find riddles, which must be completed to go home. However, the Recursion Hex has her living the same day, which leads her to multiple endings. Further, there’s a hungry wolf that roams the forest and a wicked witch full of spells. Scarlet relies on a small fox friend to guide her through whatever obstacles await.
