- … pigs.
Pigsodus is a point-and-click adventure by Psilocybe Games.
Lame joking aside, Pigsodus is not just a weird name it’s a Kickstarter project that promises to be the “ultimate pig adventure game.”
Whatever that entails.
You play as Horace Oinkstien, a pig on a quest to become the Bacon of Hope. What that is exactly isn’t clear from the rather brief demo we played.
You can find that here if you’re curious.
The combat is a mini-game that combines quick time events and your ability to spell and type words correctly in order to land hits. There are some stealth elements in which you need to hide behind objects in order to avoid detection and also a “smell-mode” that is reminiscent of Assassin’s Creed Eagle Vision, allowing you to find points of interest.
The writing is…pun-ny, for lack of a better word. There weren’t too many instances of it in the demo, but the devs promise “a full experience rich dialogue full of puns.”
The music is quirky and reminiscent of an old 80s horror film turned chip-tune, some of which are composed by Peter Surmacz. Psilocybe Games coined the “Pigcelart” (hah) art style herein, which is admittedly quite lovely to look at.
One last thing: was this demo–this teaser, really–enough to get you on board their campaign? Did it whet your taste for more or did the abrupt cliffhanger turn you off entirely? Let us know in the comments below or in the comments of the the video itself. We love to hear from the community.
Stay in the know, gamers ❤
