Press Releases

A playable demo will be available on Steam starting Oct 1st

Hamburg, Germany, September 23rd, 2021 – Publisher Daedalic Entertainment and developer Mousetrap Games today announced the strategic puzzle and tower defense game JARS. The game is set to release on October 20th on PC and Nintendo Switch. Interested players can check out a free demo of the game as part of Steam Next Fest between October 1-7, 2021. 

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.

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 the players to adapt to ever changing levels. The grim yet endearing, hand-drawn art style gives  JARS a distinct look and is inspired by the animated movies of Tim Burton and Studio Laika.

To defend each level’s Sarcophagus, the 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.

A free demo of JARS will be available during the Steam Next Fest from October 1-7. JARS is developed by Mousetrap Games and published by Daedalic Entertainment and will be released on October 20th for PC and Nintendo Switch.
