S1E1: Scarlet Hollow

A failed startup. An internet reality show. A major art project coming to an end. These were among the circumstances that led professional cartoonist Abby Howard and entrepreneur Tony Arias to embark on making a video game for their first time. This is the story of Black Tabby Games and the creation of Scarlet Hollow.
