[Videogame Review] Jack Move [demo]

Despite its generic name, Jack Move is closer to EarthBound than any other game I’ve played in recent years. Jack Move, currently in a closed PC beta scheduled for release in 2021 that I played during PAX 2020, takes place in gritty slums that our character, Noa, wanders through in order to complete the demo’s story objective. She wields a complex moveset of attacks, but underneath that is smooth gameplay, flashy graphics, and a promisingly well-written story.

Rating: ★★★★★ [5/5]
Spoilers: none related to storyline

My reporting timing is insignificant since other than some PAX-only demos, all of the information will be archived online… I think? Despite valiant efforts by the PAX staff to recreate the expo feel, I feel that the production quality was lacking in ways that should be improved next year.
