If last year’s MediEvil remaster didn’t fully satisfy your horror-tinged hop-and-pop itch, then upcoming 3D platformer Pumpkin Jack may do the trick. Officially billed as for “fans of Jak & Daxter”, the collaboration between publisher Headup Games and developer Nicolas Meyssonnier will find you “engaging in an epic battle of evil against good as you jump, dodge, and carve your way through challenging enemies and daunting puzzles”.

Judging from the trailer embedded above, this looks as old-school as platformers come, with colourful environments to explore and tons of magic items to utilise. Don’t expect this one to drop until around Halloween, but if you’re desperate to try out a demo, Steam will let you run through a level or two right now.
