Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit review: burnout

Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit reminds me of this guy I knew in high school. Let's just call this guy "J." J pulled me in with irreverent charm and a non-stop stream of jokes that were goofy, if not exactly witty. But eager to entertain as he was, J couldn't turn off the act long enough to buckle down and focus on the fundamentals. Everyone could see that he had the potential to do something with his life, just as plainly as we could see that he was wasting that potential. Hell Yeah! is that guy. Hell Yeah! shows all the signs of a much better game - a huge variety of enemies, beautiful hand-drawn art, and more. But it's too busy lobbing out inside jokes to improve on its flaws. Like my old high school buddy, Hell Yeah! is a class clown that refuses to grow up, its antics...

Hell Yeah developer Arkedo Studio ending future development, but will continue to exist (update)

Arkedo Studio, the French independent developer behind Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit, no longer has any employees and won't be making any more games, but isn't closing, co-founder and creative director Aurelien Regard announced today on his blog. (Regard wrote his original post in French, and one of his Twitter followers translated it into English for him.) "Arkedo hasn't closed down and is not bankrupt, going into administration or whatever big word, as it is managed properly," said Regard, explaining the subtlety of the situation. "But no one's employed anymore. No more games are produced either." Regard listed three main reasons for the end of Arkedo. A lack of funds is the "first and most obvious one" — the studio didn't have another project lined up after it completed H...
