Spooky 3D Platformer Pumpkin Jack Announced for PC & Consoles


Quote:
We are thrilled to announce that the comically creepy 3D platformer from developer Nicolas Meyssonnier, Pumpkin Jack, will make its way to PC and consoles in Q4 2020!

Fans of games like MediEvil and Jak and Daxter will enjoy engaging in an epic battle of evil against good as you jump, dodge, and carve your way through challenging enemies and daunting puzzles. The use of Unreal Engine grants for gorgeously rendered and gruesomely colourful landscapes.

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!

Key Features

• Colorful Cartoon Setting: Travel through lurid landscapes in levels featuring alluring atmospheres, each crafted with vibrant colour palettes, and high-quality lighting effects

• Fight For Your Life: With challenging beasts lurking around every corner, players must master the art of combo attacks, dodging, and timing to survive dynamic real-time battles! Players must unlock weapons and choose wisely in order to strike down all who oppose them!

• Don’t Lose Your Head: Solve puzzles that focus on physics, gravity, and reflection as Jack, or ditch the skinsuit and just use your flaming head to burn books, hammer some moles, create paths for magic spheres, and more as each level introduces new and exciting challenges

• Find Friends to Fight at Your Side: Helpful companions are there to assist Jack in his journey, including a haughty hooty owl to guide him along, and a snarky crow, itching to assist with long-range attacks

Pumpkin Jack will be available for PC & consoles in Q4 2020. Players eager to jump into the fray can download the free demo on Steam right now.

Looks very cool. I loved the Jak and Daxter, Ratchet and Clank, etc era of platformers. It was a (second?) golden age of the genre and it's nice to see an entry like this coming in the modern era.

Looks like fun and exactly the type of game I would get frustrated on over and over.

Looks really fun. It'd really be nice to see this one hit very early Q4 to let us Halloween junkies play it during the trick r treat season.

This was shown on reddit (r/gaming) back in October or so. Looks like it could be pretty fun.
