JARS: Solve the mysteries of your parents’ basement in a Burtonesque strategy game
The strategic tower defense game is out now on PC and Switch
Hamburg, Germany, October 20th, 2021 – Mousetrap Games and Daedalic Entertainment invite you into the dusty basement of JARS, a strategic mix of tower defense and puzzle game with a distinct gothic flair. The game is now available on PC via Steam, Epic Games Store and GoG as well as Nintendo Switch.
JARS tells the story of young Victor, who is asked to get a jar of pickles from the cellar for his mother. After he discovers a mysterious sarcophagus, crawly creatures emerge from the other jars in the basement, and our protagonist has to fight them in order to protect his ominous find. In the strategic tower defense game, Victor makes use of minions and items to break all jars and defeat their inhabitants.
Finding the perfect approach by choosing the right minions at the right time, and combining them with items and other upgrades, is essential to ensuring Victor’s victory. He also has to find out why some pages are missing in a mysterious book, why Dracula hides in his basement, and if he can save the world – before he gets grounded by his mother.
- A strategy game featuring puzzles and elements of tower defense: Break all the jars and protect the Sarcophagus – that’s your main goal!
- A distinct art style inspired by spooky and funny classics: Hand-drawn mouldy horror with a dose of humour
- Randomization and adaption: You can never be certain what is inside a jar, therefore you have to adapt to new mechanics and situations.
