Scarlet Night is an Interactive Stealth Horror ameritrash game for 1 to 5 players.
Inspired by 1980s teen slashers and ghost stories Scarlet Night tells the story of a group of friends being forced to spend the night in an old ghastly motel due to their van breakdown. It is designed by young team Big Fish Games led by Mateusz Teodorczyk, brought to life by Bartosz Piekarski and illustrated by Artur Wiernicki.
Choose one of five unique characters and decide whether you want to cooperate with your friends to get out of the trap you have entered or you want to split in two competing teams. Players have to scour through all the drawers and closets to find the keys and reveal the secret of this place. Our smartphone app uses NFC technology to check what's hidden inside the element you are searching. But, watch out for the ghost living in the walls. Stay alert, red light predicts trouble ahead. Various events can happen throughout the game and players will have to make tough decisions along the way.
It`s a slasher! You are a team, but there's a slim chance you all make it to the end.
During the game your primary goal is to get out of the Scarlet Motel. You can do it in couple of ways, depending on which game mode you will choose.
Cooperation - gather your friends and try to find three keys as quick as possible. Take care of each other and don't let the Phantom get you!
Team vs team - Split your gang into two teams and do anything to survive, even if it means you'll need to sacrifice someone. The team who finds two keys first might get out of this alive. The other one will stay in Scarlet Motel forever.
Phantom vs players (available after reaching 20k Stretch Goal) - Take the form of the Phantom and eliminate all the other players before they manage to escape your cage!
There is a couple of different layouts of the game board - randomly generated by the app at the beginning of the session. The app connects with the RGB bulb and the speaker throught WiFi, so it can provide dedicated lighting, soundtrack and sound effects to help immerse you into the game's world even more. The cycle of day and night in Scarlet Motel is suggested by the colour of the light. Every color has different meaning so stay focus. You can scour some elements with the NFC technology using our app. Just hold your phone over it and see what happens. Don't worry! Using the app won't ruin your game board experience. All it's features are designed in a was so that you won't have to tap the screen at all.

Below we post a video from the game with an explanation of the rules. Remember that for recording we used a prototype of the game without figures, original cards, and cubes. The application is in beta version, but the basic settings of lights and sounds are working already :) Enjoy!
(For the offline version, we skip card scanning. Turn the card over and read the text)
This is our first video of this type, please be understanding :)
In 2011 I founded an advertising agency, which now specializes in creating animations and illustrations for various purpose. Soon after we realized that we share common interests. Together we came up with the idea of the Scarlet Night out of passion for board games, horror movies and innovations. This is how Big Fish Games was born. Now, with your help we are trying to bring our first project to life. Thank you for your support!
Risks and challenges
We are a young team, but each member gained industry experience before and now we are ready to develop our first original title Scarlet Night. We've completed most of the game art and design and we conducted detailed playtests. We verified our plans and production process and we hope we won’t meet any challenges. Currently we are ready for the manufacturing and production stage and all we are waiting for is the success of this Kickstarter campaign. There is always the possibility of unseen risks and issues that can arise during manufacturing. We will keep our backers in the loop through our comprehensive updates and social media posts.
Thank you for your support!
