Headup Games have been behind tons of massively successful titles, helping them port onto different platforms. They have just announced their newest title Pumpkin Jack will be releasing on the Nintendo Switch, PC, and other varying consoles during the fourth quarter of 2020. \n \nThey are describing the game as a 3D platformer where you play as Jack, the Pumpkin Lod. Your mission is to attack the residents of Boredom Kingdom and help evil spread across the land. In addition to the announcement trailer, a playable demo is available on Steam. Although this all sounds vaguely like Time Burton's movie The Nightmare Before Christmas, there is surely no connection between the two other than the name Jack. \n \nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=-LVjtL7AfAE \n \nEnjoy an epic adventure full of otherworldly landscapes as you work to destroy the Good that counters your very mission.
