Log-Chopping Party Game “Lumberhill” Coming to Nintendo Switch on 15 April
“There ain’t no trees in Botswana. Nuh uh. I know. I am a Botswanian lumberjack, and I ain’t never had a job…”
Publisher All in! Games recently announced that the multiplayer party game Lumberhill is currently scheduled to release for the Nintendo Switch on 15 April, 2022.
Developed by 2BIGo (with support from ARP Games), Lumberhill is already available on Steam PC. Up to four players will contend with meteor showers, fight off pirate attacks, shepherd livestock, and – of course – chop trees, across both space and time.
Here’s the official breakdown of Lumberhill from All in! Games, followed by the latest trailer:
Life as a lumberjack is no simple walk in the forest—especially when nature is there to trip you up every step of the way. A day’s work must be done, no matter the colorful chaos that ensues! Chop wood and catch fluffy sheep in the forest, coax cute little piglets in Hawaii, steal eggs from pterodactyls when you time travel to Dino World, and herd pandas in Asia.
Lumberhill is couch co-op by design and provides the perfect opportunity to play with a party of friends across 54 different hazard filled levels. Friendships might very well be tested too as you put your teamwork skills to the test with up to three other players in local or online multiplayer as you work together to collect timber and livestock whilst dodging a variety of environmental dangers. Collaboration and communication are key if you’re going to succeed collectively, there’s no room for a weak link here.
Feeling mischievous? Switch to PvP for some real competitive chaos and hilarity, chase your friends across the map (and off it!) as a ram or a furious hog to prevent them from completing tasks and achieving the best score. Through it all, collect an array of fun skins and capture the craziest screenshot you can.
In Lumberhill you will:
• Put your teamwork skills to the test with up to 3 additional friends in local or online co-op or pvp, or play alone in solo mode
• Have your butt kicked by nature
• Complete orders in a wide variety of challenging, time-limited levels
• Deal with chaotic random events such as wildfires, meteor showers, and pirate attacks
• Unlock new exciting worlds and a wide variety of skins as you progress
• Find unexpected routes and ways of doing things
• Throw pandas around and evade dinosaurs
• Kick your friends off the map by accident a lot (or on purpose—we don’t judge)
Lumberhill will be available via the Nintendo Switch eShop on 14 April. If you decide to jump in early, there is a special 34% discount if you preorder the game staring April 8th.
