The newest games series from Pac-Man and Tekken publisher Bandai Namco may not be what you expect.

The company on Tuesday announced that it will publish "Professional Lumberjack 2015" and "Professional Lumberjack 2016," games that aim to offer players "the ultimate experience" of chopping down trees and wearing plaid. Played out in first- and third-person perspectives, your duty in the games is to cut down trees, prepare the timber, and then drive your haul back into town.

"Have you always wanted to be a lumberjack?" the publisher writes on Twitter about the 2016 game. Meanwhile, the studio tweeted about the 2015 version: "How much wood would you chuck?"

Bandai Namco has also announced that it will publish "Professional Farmer 2016," which aims to offer "the challenge in agriculture everyone wants!" In this game, players will take control of a fleet of vehicles and machinery, and also care and protect their animals.

The announcement of the three games comes as Bandai Namco and developer United Independent Entertainment revealed a worldwide digital distribution agreement for the trio of titles.

Professional Farmer 2016 is coming to PC and unspecified consoles in 2015, while Professional Lumberjack 2016 is also slated to arrive on the same platforms later this year.
