by James Gilmour 29/4/2013
Product: Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery
Developer: Lucid Games
Publisher: Lucid Games
Format: iPhone, iPad, PS Vita
Genre: Adventure, Puzzle
Update on April 29th, at 14:52: Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery will also be released on iPhone and iPad sometime in May.

Original story follows...



Vita owners will soon be able to encounter Bigfoot on a small screen in Lucid's upcoming puzzle-adventure Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery.

In this game, you get to sport the badge-emblazoned sash of Jacob, a young boy scout who has just arrived at Camp Eagle.

Instead of spending his time playing with his fellow campmates, though, Jacob seeks solitude in the wilderness. It is there he stumbles upon old Sasquatch himself, the legendary man-beast Bigfoot.



Created by the folks over at Lucid, and built using the Unreal Engine 3, Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery is, at its heart, a puzzler.

As Jacob explores the forest surrounding him, he will stumble across mini-conundrums that he must solve in order to advance.

Though the dev hasn't revealed any of the puzzle mechanics in detail yet, the screenshot above centres on a tile-arranging logic problem.

We suspect that Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery will be FULL of micro-puzzles like this. Luckily, the team has promised to reveal more information about the game in the next couple of weeks.
