JackQuest: Tale of the Sword springs onto consoles and PC this fall
The visuals are cute as can be, which usually means a game is designed to humiliate even genre veterans.
A lot of people like to talk about how difficult it is to port a game from one platform to another. And then there's one-man developer NX Games, which with an assist from publisher Blowfish Studios will release JackQuest: Tale of the Sword on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC later this year.
As the game's story goes, a pair of young lovers named Jack and Nara are out for a relaxing stroll in the woods when suddenly an orc named Korg kidnaps the damsel and retreats to his underground lair. Jack gives chase, and soon meets up with a strange blade that will serve as his ally over the course of what is sure to be a harrowing adventure.
Deep within the lair, the pair encounter slime--oh, so much slime--and environmental puzzles, power-ups, new abilities, new weapons and of course plenty of monsters and bosses.
