You got SCARF for the holiday season! And it’s beautiful!

Salamanca, Spain/Giebelstadt, Germany, 23rd December 2021

Wholesome. More than a word, rather a feeling that describes the holiday season at the end of the year. International publisher HandyGames, together with developer Uprising Studios, might be considered “daring” or just “crazy” to date the release of SCARF to the day before Christmas Eve. Also, offering a more than reasonable price for a game of this class and scale is quite unusual.

But HandyGames wants to give something back in those challenging times. And what says “Thank You!” better than giving a beautiful triple-I game to the community? For such a good price? All in all, the holidays are about making people happy.

Take your time, ease your breath and immerse into this wild world.
