Owlchemy Labs brings Jack Lumber to the World Lumberjack Championships


I wonder if it’s too late to change my Halloween costume. After watching this video, I’m suddenly bursting with the urge to don dirty flannel, grow an 11-inch beard, and knock my nerdy voice down by about three octaves.

To celebrate the recent optimization of Jack Lumber for iPhone 5, the folks at Owlchemy Labs put on their lab coats and headed out to the World Lumberjack Championships to show off their jovial wood-chopping title to the locals. Surprisingly, the cliche of antisocial, gravel-voiced meanies turned out to be false, as all the lumberjacks in this video seem like huggable, approachable grandpas. Some of them even treat us to little acapella. It’s like listening to an episode of Prairie Home Companion, except pleasant.

In addition to optimizing the game, this update also adds some new trinkets for granny’s cabin. The game’s also on sale for $0.99 at the moment, and I’m happy to report that it’s well worth it. Jack Lumber a charming, fun little game with some real challenge and great sense of humor. Check it out!
