“Pig Eat Ball” Gets Simultaneous Console Release This October!
Independent studio Mommy’s Best Games has announced the simultaneous release of “multi-awarded” Pig Eat Ball on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will occur come October 18, 2019.
Pig Eat Ball has been described as “an insane 2D action puzzle adventure about eating, getting fat, and barfing on things.” The title features more than 200 “handmade stages, tremendous boss battles, and neo-arcade gameplay.”
“Consoles are the natural habitat of Pig Eat Ball, and we took special measures to craft these versions,” said Nathan Fouts, CEO at Mommy’s Best Games. “Imagine all your arcade-action nostalgia accreted together into some sort of mutagenetic gameplay blob, and then we inserted that blob into your favorite digital store.”
