Gameplay in The Plucky Squire will have players solving puzzles, battling badgers, using a jetpack, and more as they hop between the game’s charming visual styles. Its story, detailed further on its Steam page, is simple:

When the malevolent Humgrump realizes he’s the villain of the book – destined to lose his battle against the forces of good for all eternity – he kicks the heroic Jot out of its pages and changes the story forever. Jot must face challenges, unlike anything he’s ever seen if he is to save his friends from Humgrump’s dark forces and restore the book’s happy ending.
