Little Town Hero is Coming to PS4 on June 2




Little Town Hero Ventures to PS4 with the Big Idea Edition and New Easy Mode

Whazzat? Little Town Hero is coming to PlayStation 4? You heard that right! This charming RPG will be releasing physically as the Big Idea Edition on June 2!

As the only method to obtaining a physical copy, the Big Idea Edition on PS4 also comes with an art book, poster, lapel pin set, and official soundtrack CD with music composed by Toby Fox.



In Little Town Hero, you play as Axe, a young boy with big ambitions to venture outside his village and see what lies beyond. After finding a stone that mysteriously manifests his ideas, Axe must use his imagination to defend against and discover the truth of the sudden monster attacks in his town.

The unique combat system in Little Town Hero eliminates the need to grind. Strategy and creativity go a long way in defeating your enemies!

For a more laid-back experience, the all-new Easy Mode lowers the attack and defense of enemy Dazzits, and Special Effects from enemies show up less often. Let’s take a quick look into what a battle looks like:


Izzits are ideas that have yet to be fully realized and are marked with a number that indicates how much power is needed to turn it into a Dazzit! Dazzits (shown with a unique image) come in red, yellow, and blue, each with different capabilities. A Dazzit has its own attack and defense denoted on its side.

As you can see from the image above, colliding “Psyche Guard” and the enemy’s “Punch” Dazzits would result in them both breaking each other.

Those are the basics! Let your Ideas lead you on an adventure of epic proportions with Little Town Hero Big Idea Edition, coming to PS4 on June 2!

3D Platformer Pumpkin Jack Announced for PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC




Spooky 3D Platformer Pumpkin Jack Announced for PC & Consoles

We are thrilled to announce that the comically creepy 3D platformer from developer Nicolas Meyssonnier, Pumpkin Jack, will make its way to PC and consoles in Q4 2020!

Fans of games like MediEvil and Jak and Daxter will enjoy engaging in an epic battle of evil against good as you jump, dodge, and carve your way through challenging enemies and daunting puzzles. The use of Unreal Engine grants for gorgeously rendered and gruesomely colourful landscapes.

The peaceful Boredom Kingdom, with its happy citizens, monotonous calm... and adorable little bunnies, has sent the Devil himself into a flying rage! With dreams of turmoil, torture, and bloodshed on his mind, he unleashed the dreadful Curse of the Eternal Night upon the land. Not in love with the idea of a change in their peaceful lifestyle, the humans summon their saviour — a mighty wizard with the power to put an end to the evil curse.

In order to stop these party crashers from ruining his fun, the Devil summons the spirit of Jack, the Pumpkin Lord, to fight against the wizard’s army of beasts and destroy the killjoy wizard! You, as Jack, will be tearing your way through fright-filled levels as you punish those who dared defy your master!


Key Features

Colorful Cartoon Setting: Travel through lurid landscapes in levels featuring alluring atmospheres, each crafted with vibrant colour palettes, and high-quality lighting effects

Fight For Your Life: With challenging beasts lurking around every corner, players must master the art of combo attacks, dodging, and timing to survive dynamic real-time battles! Players must unlock weapons and choose wisely in order to strike down all who oppose them!

Don’t Lose Your Head: Solve puzzles that focus on physics, gravity, and reflection as Jack, or ditch the skinsuit and just use your flaming head to burn books, hammer some moles, create paths for magic spheres, and more as each level introduces new and exciting challenges

Find Friends to Fight at Your Side: Helpful companions are there to assist Jack in his journey, including a haughty hooty owl to guide him along, and a snarky crow, itching to assist with long-range attacks

Pumpkin Jack will be available for PC & consoles in Q4 2020. Players eager to jump into the fray can download the free demo on Steam right now.
