Press release:
DÜREN, GERMANY (February 18, 2020) — Headup, the celebrated publisher of independent games, is thrilled to announce today that 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 & 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 colorful 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 savior — 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!

Additional Key Features Include:

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 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.

About Nicolas Meyssonnier
I started developing Pumpkin Jack as a spare-time project in 2016 while studying at the University. I was inspired by old PlayStation platformers I played in my childhood, such as Ratchet & Clank and most importantly Jak & Daxter, and I figured that the market lacked inspiring 3D platformers.

Since I was always attracted by dark and spooky atmospheres like the ones we can see in MediEvil, I decided to create my own game which further developed into an exciting full-time project.

As a gamer, I’m always searching for new ways to improve Pumpkin Jack and diversify the gameplay as much as possible. Learning from the old classics such as Jak & Daxter and new platformers such as A Hat in Time, I try to create a mix of stimulating battles, innovative puzzles and challenging platforming in eerie Halloween-themed environments.

I thrive on feedback, so do not hesitate to join me on my journey and help make this game the best of his time by joining my official Pumpkin Jack Twitter and Discord channels.
