Wood slicing sim Jack Lumber is now on Steam

Any day I have an excuse to post a classic Monty Python sketch is a great day. It just so happens that today is such an occasion, as Jack Lumber is now available on Steam. As part of an introductory sale, if you pick it up before May 7th you can get it at 33% off.

I picked the game up on iOS at launch, and I have to say, I had a blast. It's basically a more captivating version of Fruit Ninja, with some pretty interesting concepts, and a unique sense of humor. Essentially, you'll chop up various bits of wood as you trek across each stage, and adopt animals. Like most iOS based games, it lends itself very well to quick play sessions, and has a pretty deep in-game store -- for reference, the PC game has no microtransactions.

Developer Owlchemy Labs have demonstrated that they can create an interesting, captivating world on top of a solid gameplay foundation, and best of all -- an obscene over-the-top love for puns.more

Review: Sneaky Sneaky

Stealth is a tricky game mechanic to pull off well. If it is too slow it can be dull, but if it is too fast it is more action than stealth. If it is too predictable it becomes mundane, but if it is too random it requires more...more

Warning: Girlvania is not a very good Metroidvania

When I see the faux suffix "vania" at the end of a word, I have a Pavlovian reaction. Visions of whipping flying decapitated Medusa heads in mid-air, exploring a Victorian mansion that defies all concepts of sound architectur...more
