Spooky 3D Platformer Pumpkin Jack Unleashing on Oct 23
German video game publisher Headup Games has announced that Pumpkin Jack, a comically creepy 3D platformer from developer Nicolas Meyssonnier, will be releasing for PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on October 23.
In the game, you embody Jack, the Mythical Pumpkin Lord. Your mission is to do the bidding of the Devil himself and slay your nemesis in an epic quest that will take you on a journey through the Boredom Kingdom, a mythical realm shattered by a curse. As Jack, you’ll dive into an epic adventure through otherworldly landscapes and help the Evil annihilate the Good.
Using a vibrant palette and high-quality lighting effects, Pumpkin Jack invents its own unique cartoon universe inspired by the classic PS2 graphic style, made with Unreal Engine 4. You’ll engage in an epic battle of evil against good as you jump, dodge, and carve your way through challenging enemies and daunting puzzles. You’ll have to master the arts of dodging, timing, and movement to vanquish Jack’s foes, as you speed on roller-coaster-like rails in cartoony mine karts, escape dangerous situations like a giant burning barn and use your trusty owl companion for distance attacks.
- Colorful Cartoon Setting: Travel through lurid landscapes in levels featuring alluring atmospheres, each crafted with vibrant color 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 on his journey, including a haughty hooty owl to guide him along; and a snarky crow, itching to assist with long-range attacks
Pumpkin Jack looks to please both fans of games like MediEvil and Jak & Daxter, as well as anyone looking for an eerie game to play around Halloween.
