There is a legend that haunts the children of the sleepy town of Nockturn. From the long-ago and forgotten past, an ancient fiend lays biding the centuries - waiting on his revenge. On this night - the night of Spirits Night when the restless dead are closest to the world of the living - the specter known as Stingy Old Jack will finally have that revenge!
From out of nowhere he strikes, catching the celebrating townsfolk of Nockturn unawares! He has ripped the Shadow Shroud - the mystic barrier that separates the living from the spirits of those who have not yet passed on. Ghosts and the risen dead as well as turnips, of all things, are accosting the town! They seek to destroy the harvest - and as many goodly souls as they can.
It’s a good thing that the children of Nockturn are hero kids!
With every able-bodied man and woman of the town desperately fighting against the dire odds posed by the pumpkin fiend, the mayor has called you - the heroic children of the village - to find a way to save everyone!
