“Medievil meets Jak & Daxter” in Pumpkin Jack, an upcoming 3D platformer by Nicolas Meyssonnier and Adrien Lucas.
“The peaceful Boredom Kingdom, with its happy citizens, monotonous calm… and adorable little bunnies, has sent the Devil himself into a flying rage! With dreams of turmoil, torture, and bloodshed on his mind, he unleashed the dreadful Curse of the Eternal Night upon the land. Not in love with the idea of a change in their peaceful lifestyle, the humans summon their saviour — a mighty wizard with the power to put an end to the evil curse.
In order to stop these party crashers from ruining his fun, the Devil summons the spirit of Jack, the Pumpkin Lord, to fight against the wizard’s army of beasts and destroy the killjoy wizard! You, as Jack, will be tearing your way through fright-filled levels as you punish those who dared defy your master!”
The game promises “otherworldly landscapes” inspired by PS2-era graphic design, and a focus on challenging single-player gameplay with puzzles, real-time battles, and AI companions.
Pumpkin Jack will arrive on October 23, 2020 on PC, Switch, PS4 and Xbox One, but you can check out a free demo right now over on Steam.
