JackQuest: Tale of the Sword

Fast-paced fantasy action platformer JackQuest: Tale of the Sword will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam on January 24 for $9.99 USD / €9.99 / £8.99 / $14.99 AUD, publisher Blowfish Studios and developer NX Games announced. It will feature support for English, French, Russian, German, Spanish, and Portuguese language options.

Here is an overview of the game, via Blowfish Studios:

One fateful night, when young Jack takes the beautiful Nara for a walk in the woods, 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.

In JackQuest, players will explore the cavernous depths of Korg’s slime-ridden, labyrinthine lair. There, they will solve environmental puzzles, discover power-ups, obtain new abilities, collect weapons, and challenge subterranean foes, including massive bosses.

A fast-paced affair, JackQuest wastes no time with its quick combat and steady progression, guiding players through a single-interconnected world full of secrets, collectable gems, and hidden challenges that are sure to keep completionists engaged for hours on end.
