Pumpkin Jack

With the Halloween holiday and Pumpkin Jack‘s release just around the corner, publisher Headup has released an appropriately ghoulish launch trailer for the upcoming 3D platformer from indie developer  Nicolas Meyssonnier.

The trailer is sweet as candy. Clocking in at nearly two-minutes long, it does a good job of showcasing the game’s frantic combat and weapons, haunting environments, and colorful cast of creepy characters that inhabit the cursed land of Boredom Kingdom.

What are you waiting for? Check out the full launch trailer below:

Additionally, Headup has confirmed that composer Yohan Jager’s official soundtrack, co-published by Black Screen Records, is now available to pre-order. The soundtrack will release alongside the game this Friday, October 23.

Those wanting to get their mitts on the game won’t have to wait for long. Pumpkin Jack launches this Friday, October 23 on Switch and Xbox One as well as on PC via Steam, GOG, and Epic. A PS4 release will follow in the coming weeks.

So, what do you think of the look of the game? Will you be kicking off your Halloween holiday as the Mythical Pumpkin Lord to vanquish all that is good? We love to hear what you think. Be sure to sound off in the comments below and let us know.
