Launching Pad Games Scarlett and the Spark of Life for iOS is on sale right now for 99 cents. The sale coincides with the release of the new ‘Visual Commentary’ feature. The integrated commentary feature gives players a behind-the-scenes look at the design and development of Scarlett.

Launching Pad Games describes the game:

Scarlett and the Spark of Life, the first of four planned episodes, introduces players to a princess with a sharp tongue and a grumpy mechanical horse with a giant ego. Built from the ground up for handheld iOS devices, it features an intuitive ‘point and tap’ interface and frustration-free gameplay. Those who’ve played the game have fallen in love with Scarlett’s design, story, characters and humor. Paste Magazine’s Kirk Hamilton praised the presentation as “damn near flawless”, while’s Jonathon Liu called Scarlett “brilliantly written” with “priceless dialogue”.

The new Visual Commentary feature gives fans an insider’s view as they replay the game. “This is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to everyone who has enjoyed Scarlett,” says Tim Knauf, one half of Launching Pad’s two-man team. “Do you want to find out about the design process or the evolution of our characters? How about the game’s bizarre original title, or the surprising number of art style changes? All this and much more is detailed in the tell-all Visual Commentary.”

Scarlett and the Spark of Life can be found on the App Store product page and you can check out a trailer for it at the game’s official website.
