? Finalist in the Pocket Gamer Awards 2011, Adventure/RPG category! ?? Top ten in the ‘Role Playing’ category in 50 countries ?? Thanks for all the amazing 5-star reviews! ?A quick note for all the folks wondering about a sequel: believe us, the three of us are EXTREMELY KEEN to get Scarlett 2 made. Unfortunately, while Scarlett is much beloved, her sales haven't actually been sky-high. (Ridiculous, we know!) Quite honestly, the company needs some more savings behind it before we can finish making more adventure games — believe it or not, they're rather time-and-money-consuming to make! So please, bear with us while we save our pennies. ?? About the game ?Kidnapped? Standard princess procedure dictates dutifully awaiting rescue by a knight in shining armor.But Scarlett isn’t dutiful. She’s angry. She’s going to start a fight, make a daring escape, and ride into the sunset on an egotistical mechanical horse built from spare parts. Hang on…Scarlett and the Spark of Life is the first episode of the Scarlett Adventures, lovingly crafted in the spirit of classic ‘point and click’ adventures exclusively for the iPhone and iPod Touch.? Features ?? An angry princess with a crowbar? A talking horse with a god complex? A hilarious tale of mystery, deceit, and psychopathic furry animalsDo you really need anything else? Yes? Okay:? Frustration-free ‘point and tap’ gameplay built specifically for the iPhone / iPod Touch? Explore an eclectic alpine village and figure out its puzzling secrets? Battle, belittle and/or befriend an eccentric cast of characters? Go behind the scenes with the unique Visual Commentary mode?
