The absurdly adorable animal cast of Happy Tree Friends is set to appear in a new digitally distributed PC and Xbox Live Arcade game, Happy Tree Friends: False Alarm. Of course, as fans of the internet series and television show are well aware, said appearance would likely be cut short by all manner of sharp and obscenely violent implements. Developed by Stainless Games and published by Sega, the cute critter-sploitation splatterfest is scheduled for a Fall 2007 release.

Billed as an action-puzzle game, False Alarm will largely feature a "physics-based reactive environment" and "accidental mayhem." Players control one of three characters, namely Flippy (a bear), Lumpy (a moose) and Handy (an amputee beaver carpenter... it says here). Kenn Navarro, creator of the deeply demented property, notes that "Sega is a perfect partner for us because of their rich tradition of creating compelling, character-based games, and true to form they're developing a truly original game that we think our fans will love." Of course, said tradition is generally devoid of chainsaws mutilating cuddly creatures, so a Sonic the Hedgehog cameo seems unlikely.
