Scarlet Hood and the Wicked Wood from Devespresso Games and Headup has now moved to an April 9 release date, and it will no longer be in Early Access as they will be ready for a full release.

It was going to be due on February 10 so it's not exactly a long delay and they gave no reason for the change. Sounds good overall though as it will release with all parts of the story along with translations for English, Korean, German, French, Russian, Simplified Chinese, and Spanish.

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

"Scarlet, the protagonist and a diva in the making, awakes in the realm of Glome after being flung over by a rogue tornado. She discovers an electrifying 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, a tin knight, talking beasts, monsters, and many fearsome creatures to overcome."

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.

Interesting that they are skipping the early access, I would be interested to know what the exact reasons are.
But well I look forward to a direct full release

Good to see that there is a German translation.

The reasoning for the change is (sort of) given on the Discord channel:

So, "several issues on the Early Access" it is. :) A collective decision with the publisher (Headup Games).
