Spooky Platormer Halloween Forever Looks Adorable in New Trailer

Holloween Forever gives classic seasonal tropes an adorable 8-bit twist in its launch trailer for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.

The spooky season is officially in full swing. It’s the time of the year when people like to spend their time carving pumpkins, creating costumes, and playing their favorite horror-themed games. However, not all games featuring ghouls and other graveyard nasties have to be intense and frightening experiences. The trailer for Halloween Forever on PlayStation 4 and Ps Vita shows how a game can feature disembodied heads while still remaining quite cute.

Holloween Forever is an 8-bit retro-inspired platformer from Imaginary Monsters where you play as Pumpkin Man; a creature that has been animated by magic, sporting a pumpkin for a head and a pair of traditional dungarees. Adventuring through three creepy worlds, the adorable little creature fends off his monstrous foes by barfing balls of candy corn as a means of attack.

Throughout his quest to discover why things are so spooky, he takes on a number of increasingly bizarre enemies. These include a lot of standard Halloween tropes such as skeletons, spiders, and bats. However, there are also some more unusual creatures to encounter throughout the game including chainsaw-wielding maniacs, demonic entities, and massive monsters who spit out insects.

Halloween Forever launches tomorrow, October 19, 2018, for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. It can also be picked up on Steam.
