Log Jammers Kickstarter Wants Axe-Throwing Action on the PS4

August 29, 2018Written by Janet Garcia

Mega Cat Studios will be launching a Kickstarter on September 12, 2018 for Log Jammers, an arcade sports game. The indie studio is known for publishing retro cartridges for the NES, SNES, and Genesis, but it also creates digital versions of its games for fans to play on modern hardware. This Kickstarter would cover the cost of porting Log Jammers to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam.

Here’s a Log Jammers trailer.

According to the official press release, the fast paced, back-and-forth competition features “axe-throwing, blade-catching action with a retro vibe in the vein of Windjammers.” Below are the features you can expect to see in Log Jammers:

Features

  • Slam your axe into your opponent’s goal in fast-paced blade tossing carnage!

  • Activate power-ups to set your blade ablaze or cover your opponent in slippery oil!

  • Grab the star to unleash each character’s unique special throw!

  • Choose a timber beast with a level of speed, technique, and swoleness that suits your play style!

  • Jam out in funky arenas like a mayonnaise factory spill, 80s hell, and a peaceful beaver pond!

  • Get to know colorful characters, like Bruiser Bogardus, the strong man who makes exercise equipment out of wood, or the Mayonnaise Monsoon, a bloated corpse who died in an industrial accident

  • Revel in victory as your lumberjack trash talks your vanquished opponent!

  • Amp up the body count in cheerleader mode!

Fans who are eager to get a sense of the game can play a demo on Steam.

While we often see smaller IPs from indie studios show up on Kickstarter, it is important to remember it isn’t only for new IPs.
