Jack Lumber's Debut Sets Lumberjacks to Singing

Don't hit the beaver, developer Owlchemy Labs advises; the beaver is your friend.

Playtesting your game to death is the path to success, but Owlchemy Labs took that credo one step further and let real live lumberjacks have a shot at their tree-chopping mobile game, Jack Lumber. The result? Owlchemy discovered that real live lumberjacks are darn good at chopping down Jack Lumber's forests. Who knew?

This puzzler has you, as the Jack of the title, avenging your dear old granny's death at the hands - limbs? - of a wicked tree. You chop your way through the levels, making sure not to hurt the little creatures of the forest - remember, the beaver is your friend, Owlchemy says - and Jack kindly offers the critters a place to stay after he hacks their homes up. Eventually his cabin will be filled with the frisky little beggars, as he continues his tree-killing campaign.

Heck, Jack Lumber was so much fun it even got the lumberjacks singing. If that isn't an endorsement, what is? This iPhone and iPad title can be had here, for less than a buck. So long as you have the beard for it, that is ...

I've always been very affectionate when it comes to beavers >)

I am extremely disappointed at the lack of Monty Python's Lumberjack Song. Go ahead, give it a listen. It is the lumberjack song. Its even called that.

Lumberjack Song.

@Karloff Thank you for this. I probably would not of found this otherwise. Made me smile, so I thank you for that.

Ninja'd. Allow me to add that since this has been "done before". The novelty without the nod to the originators and semi-genius of MPFC is non-existent.
In saying so, let me clear up: I loved some MPFC skits and the movies, but a good portion of their work is still unbearable. Too little butter spread over too much bread.

Oh, very true. While some of the skits were sterling, the rest were mediocre to outright bad. Those that saw the series know some of the ones that stand out: Parrot Sketch, Spanish Inquisition, How Not To Be Seen, Confuse-A-Cat, and so on.

But, really, the even if its only very vaguely related due to the subject of Jumberjacks, the opportunity would've been too great for me to pass up. I wouldn't be able to help it.

Lol, awesome piece of marketing, hope this comes out on Android.

OT: They have a Lumberjack convention? why didn't i know about this before?
