SEGA Alliance Rolls Out Flannel Carpet for “Jack Lumber”

SEGA Alliance

We’re excited to announce the formation of a new publishing initiative, called SEGA Alliance.  The SEGA Alliance will focus on publishing mobile games made by independent developers, and will provide participating developers with comprehensive marketing and production support as well as creative consultation.  SEGA Alliance’s first title, Jack Lumber, developed by Owlchemy Labs, launched today on iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch worldwide. Jack Lumber will also be shown in the SEGA booth at the upcoming Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) in Seattle, WA.

Jack Lumber

Jack Lumber tells the tale of a supernatural lumberjack out to exact revenge on the forest after a tree killed his granny. Players will massacre the forest in this time-warping, line-drawing, pun-filled mash-up from Owlchemy Labs, the scientists of mobile gaming who create award-winning absurdist mobile hits like Snuggle Truck.

“SEGA has been a major player in the mobile games landscape for years, and we’ve had tremendous success bringing our iconic franchises to smartphones and tablets,” said Chris Olson, Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA. “With SEGA Alliance, we’re looking forward to sharing that success with talented developers like Owlchemy Labs by introducing new and unique games, such as Jack Lumber, to the market. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some trees to destroy.”

“We’re very excited about being the first developer to partner with SEGA Alliance,” said Alex Schwartz, Chief Scientist at Owlchemy Labs. “We’ll be able to introduce Jack Lumber to a much wider audience than we’d originally hoped thanks to the resources provided by SEGA Alliance. Working with SEGA has been the opposite of dealing with a lumbering bureaucracy. We just focused on making a great game. Now Jack Lumber is branching out across mobile devices and players worldwide can show those treacherous trees who’s boss!”

Jack Lumber

Jack Lumber is available on the iTunes App Store for $1.99, with a special launch price of $0.99 (£0.69, 0,79 €) for a limited time.

Pimp it Up and Drill to Kill in Hell Yeah!

And now, what we have all been waiting for … SEGA and Arkedo are happy to reveal that Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit will be available to download in North America on September 25 for PlayStation Network, September 26 on Xbox LIVE  Arcade, and October 3 for PC digital download for $14.99/1200MSP/$14.99 respectively. In Europe, Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit will be available for all three platforms on October 3 for 1200MSP/£9.99/€12.99/AUD$19.95.

Hell Yeah - Digital Day

You want glitter? You want gold? The “Pimp it Up” bling-tastic trailer for Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit has it all! Thirteen guns to blast those filthy monsters with, nine wheels to pimp out your slaughter machine and over fifty masks to slay in style. Sound awesome? Check it out!

YouTube Preview Image

Ash, the prince of hell, is not a killer or a thief. Okay, that’s not true, but it’s not his fault he has to harvest monster souls, grab diamonds and loot gold to unlock upgrades and customizations on his quest for vengeance. More power means more comical gore, more penetrating drill power (eww, we know what you were thinking) and more ways to complete 100% of the game while looking good doing it. The devil is in the details, after all!
