Carrot In Hell: Wrath Of The Dead Rabbit

By Adam Smith on May 8th, 2012 at 3:00 pm.

What’s the best game with an exclamation mark in its title? Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit has one but I’m going to stop using it now because it’s awkward and silly, which could well be an accurate description of the game itself. Published by Sega and developed by Arkedo, who made three minimalist but stylish games for XBLIG and PSN, Hell Yeah is a loud tale of revenge, rubber duck shame tapes and the rabbity prince of Hell. The trailer below is so much in your face that you might end up mistaking it for your cheekbone and I’m not entirely sure that it’s my particular brand of madcap tea, but others may be more impressed by its cartoon violence.

There’s an earlier trailer as well, which I think we walked past in the street while pretending to be on the phone because a PC release hadn’t been confirmed at the time. Now that the game is coming to Steam, I suppose you might want to see this as well.

That one’s even louder!

Not quite as loud but decidedly more alarming is this, taken from a recent Arkedo blogpost showing off some monster designs.

I’ll let the website do the talking:

“Finally, we managed to get a recent picture of Patrick, our Producer within SEGA, so we could design a monster out of him. Our way to say thanks, and pay homage. Luckily enough, going by the photo, there wasn’t that much additional work needed -so this one was drawn quickly. Sometimes, good design only mimics nature, and we are fine with this…Its fate is to be squished by a giant sponge.”

Erk.

    I always enjoy the combination of cute and violent.

    There’s something magical about entrails spilling out of a cute cartoon character.

    Zombie Jazz Jackrabbit!

    Stars!, surely?

    Is that patrick thing supposed to look like the X-rated, lovecraftian version of patrick from spongebob?

    • Squire says:

      Indeed, I think the ”Patrick The Producer” story is to stop them being sued.

      ‘Cause I’m pretty sure copying a character design exactly, bar sticking five[5] tits on it is copyright infringement.

      Who lives near a pineapple under the sea,
      with 5 flopping teettees that everyone can see!

    Is this the one that Stuart ‘Rev Stu’ Campbell is involved in? Looks nicely mental in a 3d Realms sort of way.

    Ahaha!!! A fart joke!!! Oh man, this game is RIGHT up my alley, 20 years ago, when I was 5.

    • SanguineAngel says:

      Yes, if they had only released their game 20 years ago. Now, of course, there are no adolescents left anymore so no one would find a fart joke funny

  7. MOKKA says:

    So this is what happenes to Max after he dies?

  8. LTK says:

    You’d think it takes a bit more than 100 views on an embarassing blog post for this prince to go on a vengeance-fueled rampage. Surely the Infernet has a lot more users than that?

  9. mmalove says:

    What I want to know, is why this is the only game tagged “Hell Yeah!”

  10. Subv3rse says:

    Ok, so normally I wouldn’t make mention of such a thing, but the first trailer – PEGI 12 rated? Seriously?

  11. Meckell says:

    What I am getting from these trailers is that this is a game about a wheel skeleton.
