Of Blood and Bacon: Impressions

Basically an accurate depiction of the game.

Blood and Bacon is a 99 cent 2-4 person online multiplayer game on Steam developed by “Big Corporation” and published by “Grunge Games LTD” and it is honestly worth literally every penny.

The game takes place entirely on a farm that’s roughly the size of a third of an Unreal Tournament map, and your “quests” are given to you by a farmer who is pinned to the wall of a barn, your headquarters, with a pitchfork. The graphics are reminiscent of Half Life and gameplay centers around shooting pigs….shooting lots and lots of rabid swine. And that’s really it! There’s a few guns that you unlock in the regular game mode as you progress, as well as some items you can pick up like grenades and pig’s milk, which alters your speed. You progress by completing levels, and every level has a different challenge thrown your way. Every ten levels you fight a boss, which honestly can get pretty challenging, even for a group of four.


As far as $1 of your money goes, spending it on Blood and Bacon is well worth it if you have three friends to play with and don’t mind an intense amount of pork-related gore. I’ve already put in well over 3 hours of hilarious fun and seeing as I can’t buy anything in a one mile radius of my apartment that costs a dollar and can provide me three hours of entertainment, as I said earlier, this game is worth literally every penny.
