Developed by Mousetrap Games and released with Daedalic Entertainment, the game „Jars” is being released on Steam and Nintendo Switch on this very day!
„Jars” is a platform game within the mid-core genre that combines the characteristics of a puzzle game with tower defense mechanics. A large part of this project is played by its artistic style/direction, which builds the atmosphere of secrecy with a bit of humor mixed in. That inspiration comes from such sources as ‘The Addams Family’ or Tim Burton’s works.
The primary goal of the main hero, Victor, is to protect a mysterious Sarcophagus from numerous Nasties – creatures that escape broken jars. Various Minions help Victor achieve his goal, so a well-thought-out (and fitting) strategy will allow them to get rid of all the Nasties and keep the Sarcophagus from being destroyed.
This project was developed by Mousetrap Games – A Wrocław based gaming studio, a subsidiary of Oxygen SA. For publishing and the promotion/advertisement of the game, is responsible Daedalic Entertainment, one of the most valued German game publishers and distributors. Operating from Hamburg, this globally reaching company develops and distributes projects of various genres while showing clear interest in narration-based games that offer character development and games with original graphic styles. In addition, Daedalic Entertainment also develops its own games for consoles, PCs, and mobile platforms.
