Looking to combine your love for exploration with the joy found in platforming? JackQuest is coming!
JackQuest: Tale of the Sword (to give it’s full name) is a fast paced fantasy action platformer that is being published by Blowfish Studios and developed by the one-man army at NX Games. Today comes the announcement that it will find its way to Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC in late 2018.
JackQuest tells the tale of one fateful night when a young lad, Jack, takes the beautiful Nara for a walk in the woods. It is here where his love is kidnapped by the villainous orc Korg. Forced to mount a rescue, Jack plunges into Korg’s underground base, where he happens upon a strange blade that becomes an unlikely ally.
This is where you come in and throughout your time with JackQuest, will be found exploring the cavernous depths of Korg’s slime-ridden, labyrinthine lair. And it is there where you will need to solve environmental puzzles, discover power-ups, obtain new abilities, collect weapons, and challenge subterranean foes, including the most of massive bosses.
It all plays out as a fast-paced affair with quick combat and steady progression, with players travelling through a single-interconnected world full of secrets, collectable gems, and hidden challenges that are sure to keep completionists engaged for hours on end.
“JackQuest is a lovely action-packed platformer that places a heavy focus on exploration,” said Ben Lee, CEO, Blowfish Studios. “We look forward to bringing it to Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC and sharing it with you all later this year.”
