Pumpkin Jack Preview

With 3D platformers in the midst of a resurgence, gamers are being treated to nostalgia-filled titles that embody the essence of worlds that came before. Taking a hefty slice of inspiration from MediEvil, Pumpkin Jack is a new platformer developed by Nicolas Meyssonier.

Take control of the Pumpkin Lord, Jack, as you are tasked with objectives from the Devil himself. From exploration to platforming and fighting enemies to collecting items, Pumpkin Jack has all the staples of the genre. With a unique setting and luscious cartoon graphical style, could this be a Halloween trick or treat? Watch our preview below to find out!

If you haven’t heard much about Pumpkin Jack, here’s what the official website has to say, “Follow the will of the Devil himself and slay your nemesis in an epic quest that will take you on a journey in the Boredom Kingdom, a mythical realm shattered by the Curse. You will meet friends along the way, from a haughty Owl to a snarky Crow!”

Slated for an October release, we here at COGconnected look forward to spending the Halloween season in the world of Pumpkin Jack.
