Scarlet Hollow has been critically acclaimed for its masterful blend of humour and horror. Since Episode 2 will carry on the story. It also seems fitting to be sure about Linux support. So, I reached out to Black Tabby Games. When I asked about native support, they replied with “of course!”

Scarlet Hollow was originally funded on Kickstarter. Raising $81k USD with the support of 2,726 backers. Its success led to the game winning the Runner Up and Gamers’ Choice prizes from AT&T Unlocked Games.
