â€œThis is one of those games that I pick up and then canâ€™t stop playing because I always feel like I do something meaningful each time I play. JackQuestâ€™s mix of fast-paced action and exploration makes it hard to put down, and itâ€™s been an honor to work with NX Games to bring this game to life.â€
