A downloadable pig game for Windows, macOS, and Linux


An action strategy pig game where you play as a legion of militant Roman Pigs, sent to conquer the villages of Germanic Boars.  Capture prisoners, loot their homes, defeat their leader Boarminius!  Bring Glory to the Roman Pig Empire!

Made for the Godot Wild Jam #33


All controls are rebindable in the options by pressing Escape.

Default controls:

- move with WASD
- attack with space
- recruit/buy item with E
- order a single unit to attack with left mouse button
- charge  with all your army with middle mouse button
- recall your army with right mouse button 

The first level is a tutorial which explains the following. But in case you missed something:
After defeating a barbarian boar, it will start crawling to the nearest hut. You can walk next to the crawling boar and press E to recruit it into your pig army.

The pigs AI will automatically detect near enemies and huts and attack or raid them.  Left click will send a single soldier to the target location, middle click will send all your soldiers and right click will recall them into formation.

To progress further you have to destroy all the huts by sending soldiers to them. They will bring back coins. The total amount is written on the flag carrier.
Every pig will cost money during battle, so try not to grow your army too much or they will become deserters if you can't pay them!
