Classic Survival Design, New Horror
October 22nd, 2021 –Knoxville, Tennessee – Jaws of Extinction, the indie horror survival game by KYE Creations, is launching their Halloween event! The island of Eden-Nadir is being haunted by a mysterious evil force, Halloween Jack!
During the course of the event, players will get to experience the introduction of new mechanics that will be used going forward as new boss encounters are added.
Halloween Event: Halloween Jack
Halloween Jack has kidnapped Sophia Riggs – one of the game’s main protagonists! He has taken her back to his lair, but there may be hope yet. Every Halloween, giant pumpkins grow across Eden Nadir, fuelling Jack’s dark powers. Players will need to search far and wide to destroy enough pumpkins and scarecrow effigies to reveal Jack’s evil lair and the real challenge begins. Will Sophia’s soul be saved? Preparation is key and players will need to stay on their toes to survive the fight. If players overcome this nightmare encounter and save her, a bounty of rewards will be gifted to them, including early access for Sophia as a playable character. If players defeat Halloween Jack while playing as Sophia, they additionally unlock a themed outfit exclusively from this event.
Halloween Jack is the first boss encounter in Jaws of Extinction. Following the results of this spooky seasonal confrontation, additional boss encounters are on the horizon. Expect new bosses with different strengths and weaknesses to be added in the future, requiring players to think of new strategies to best their enemies. Boss encounters will be formidable, nail biting experiences that will push players to think fast and strategically. Planning will be essential. Future bosses may require you to learn about them in advance, to prepare the necessary equipment required to confront and defeat them. Fail to prepare – prepare to fail!
About Jaws of Extinction
HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO TO SURVIVE ONE MORE DAY?
Jaws Of Extinction (JoE) is a story-driven, single-player, and co-op, horror-survival RPG. Your story begins on a large, open-world island known as Eden-Nadir; a place renowned for its beauty and thriving wildlife. You will be faced with decisions that you may not wish to make as you battle against terrifying infected locals, brutal armed survivors, dangerous native wildlife, exposure to the elements, threats posed by other players, and more. Live in one of Eden-Nadir’s small but safe communities or survive on your own and build your own base.
● What will be your profession? You can build, craft, trade, farm, hunt, fight, scavenge, loot, ambush, and steal… it’s all up to you! How will you choose to survive?
● The infected can do almost everything you can do—climb, vault, run, and even open doors. To get an edge, players must use stealth, cunning, and the appropriate equipment to survive.
● Infected are attracted to water and become extremely dangerous when exposed to it. Every trip to a reliable watering hole carries risk, and be wary of straying too far from safety when dark clouds are overhead. The skies will betray you in other ways too. Beware of flocks of carrion birds that will give away your position.
