A downloadable game for Windows
Welcome to the Dark.
Scarlet Radiance is a relaxing and minimalistic Metroidvania, with some light puzzle phases. You play as Scarlet, a shadowish form followed by devoted spirits, as you explore an empty and ancient temple.
You'll need to collect keys through the map to open the Final Door, but Scarlet isn't powerful enough to achieve that at first. Her spirits can interact with energy leaks to improve Scarlet with a few upgrades which will permit her to walljump, sprint and grab ledges to climb walls.
Note: Walljump have a limited number of jump. First walljump upgrade permit to jump twice ; second walljump upgrade permit to jump three times.
This game is an end-of-year project for my first year at e-artsup school, developed in about a month. There are a few bugs and improvements that are still on a task list (see below).

- Due to time restriction, ghost jump is not implemented yet. You may expect some jump latency with low-performance machines and wireless gamepads.
- A luminosity option is needed as the game is dark and some screens doesn't display the various white levels as intended, making the puzzle mechanic hard to understand.
- Music and sounds need to be redone entirely.
- Puzzle introduction is not implemented yet.
- While sprinting, step sounds are not correctly coordinated with the animation.
- Various informations needs to be clearer for the player: what keys are and what are their usage ; walljump endurance ; clearer upgrade indicators.
Download the zip folder, extract it and run "Scarlet_Radiance_1.1.exe". Enjoy !
