  • Scarlet Hollow

Scarlet Hollow is being released across 7 episodes. The first two are already released for you to play, with the remaining episodes to follow as free updates as we finish them.


Trapped in the dying Appalachian mining town of Scarlet Hollow for the funeral of your estranged aunt, you quickly find yourself at the center of a dark mystery that threatens your life and the fate of an entire town. Who lives, who dies, and the fate of an entire town rests on your shoulders.

Features

  • A heavily branching narrative where your choices matter. The relationships you forge and the decisions you make will dramatically alter your journey.
  • Terrifying and funny. Charming characters and snappy dialogue flip to pulse-pounding horror at a moment's notice.
  • A complex relationship system that changes how characters act around you. Characters don't just like or dislike you. Become friendly rivals, bitter adversaries, best friends, or mild acquaintances with everyone in town based on how you approach the story.
  • Trait-based dialogue and role-playing. Scarlet Hollow's dialogue system is driven by role-playing elements that let you choose who you want to be. Are you quiet and observant? Hot and clueless? 21 different character builds change how you interact with the world and how your story unfolds.
  • Original monster designs inspired by Appalachian myths and cryptids. You won't find any predictable vampires or zombies here.
  • Five romance options. Whether you're into goths, dads, Youtubers, mysterious recluses, or lo-fi beats to study and water your plants to, we've got all your bases covered.
  • Dozens of meticulously hand-drawn and traditionally inked backgrounds. Every background in the game is drawn by hand and inked on massive 19x24 inch paper.
  • Hundreds of immersive sprites. Each major character has dozens of hand-drawn sprites that interact with backgrounds and capture a full range of lighting, emotion, environment, and outfit changes.

Character creation now how a conditional on screen keyboard that appears if you're using a gamepad, circumventing the need to use a keyboard to type in a character name.

Hey everyone! Sorry there was a bit of a gap before these fixes went out, it's been a really busy month! Fixes include: - Typos - Avery disappearing for a single frame near the end of episode 3 - A few instances of broken game logic, including for runs where you see Isaacs (missing flag for your post Isaacs hangout choice leading to some weird interactions with Tabitha) and a line of questioning shunting players on a "leave" path at the end of episode 3 to a dialogue tree for the book smart path...

Assorted fixes for bugs that have been caught over the past couple of weeks - sorry this one took a bit, taxes + GDC needed all of my attention for a bit! High level: Fixed some typos/missing punctuation. Removed some inconsistencies present in rare decision combinations. Updated Tabitha's default left hand sprites to reflect the update to her default right hand sprites.

Thank you all so much for the overwhelming mass of fan art submissions! As our special way of saying thanks, we'll be doing a full, live, marathon playthrough of the first three episodes of Scarlet Hollow on Saturday, 4/16. We'll be simulcasting to our Twitch, our YouTube, and our store page here on Steam (where it looks live we've finally fixed our streaming issues!) Twitch is usually where we see the most activity, so if you want to be in the biggest chat, that'...

Hey folks! Quite a few exciting things in the works lately — we're so happy to finally share them here: Hidden relationship values removed in favor of a visible + hearts - hearts system. Tabitha added as a romance option. You can now select five traits at character creation. To balance this out, we've also increased our trait pool by adding another FIVE, which all have secret conditions to unlock. Will you master the Kamehameha wave? Or maybe you'll wear a fursuit...
