Publisher Daedalic Entertainment and developer Mousetrap Games have announced their new game JARS. Interested players can play a free demo of the game as part of Steam Next Fest between October 1-7, 2021.
JARS is a strategy game with puzzles and tower defense elements. In order to reach their goal, players will have to break the jars littering the cellar. What waits inside of them is always different, making the reveals exciting and forcing players to adapt to levels and are constantly changing. The grim yet endearing, hand drawn art style gives the game a distinct look and is inspired by the animated movies of Tim Burton and Studio Laika.
To defend each level's Sarcophagus, players must deploy minions and items like mosquitos, acorns and hedgehogs to destroy every jar and defeat the nasties crawling through the cellar. Finding the perfect strategy by choosing the right minions at the right time, and combining them with items and other upgrades, is essential to ensuring Victor’s victory.
"In the musty depths of his parent’s basement, young Victor tries to discover the secrets buried beneath his house. Why are there pages missing from this mysterious book and whatever is Dracula doing down there? On his bizarre adventure Victor will come face to face with nasty creatures, hiding in the shadows, and will have to keep them away from the Sarcophagus." - Chris Priestly, Evolve PR
A free demo of JARS will be available during Steam Next Fest from October 1-7. Developed by Mousetrap Games and published by Daedalic Entertainment, the game will be released on October 20th for PC and Nintendo Switch.
