I had planned to make a bad joke here but instead I’ll refrain from making a pig out of myself. I want to be a bacon of professionalism, after all. The last thing I want to do is pork fun at a game like Pigsodus.

All right, enough with the bad puns. By now I’m sure you’re acutely aware that I’m talking about a game featuring a member of the porcine variety. And I’m honestly very much interested in seeing how this one plays out.


Pigsodus is a point and click adventure game with RPG elements. You play as a rather intelligent example of the species as he, and other barnyard pals, seek to take on the dreaded butcher and his hunter buddies. Yeah, this isn’t exactly a serious story in the genre. In fact, I’m pretty sure that the rooster has a fowl mouth and that alone is worth checking this one out for. Beyond the standard fare and the promise of some mini-games, though, there isn’t much to talk about.


There is a demo to try out, so if you’re on the fence you can give it a go. Still, even without playing it I can tell that this is one epic tale on an animal farm. It certainly looks like an eggcelent addition to the stable of adventure games. If there is one issue that I have with the pitch it’s that the two-person development team don’t talk about themselves much and why they’re qualified to make Pigsodus.
