All Grease. No Peace. Bacon Man: An Adventure launches today on Steam! Mac, Linux, and Xbox One versions will follow later. This hardcore platformer will challenge you to the biggest food fight you’ve ever encountered.
About Bacon Man: An Adventure
Meta Story: Old King Roast Beef has been brutally murdered, and his obviously innocent grandson Bacon Man has been framed by the Food Kings. With the weight of the world resting on his shoulders, take on the role of Bacon Man, battle through the food groups, and confront those who condemned you. It’s up to you to clear his name, by murdering those who put him behind bars
Play as Bacon Man and fry enemies with his classic Toaster Gun, or try out Feta and cut them up like sashimi. Seek wisdom from the Sau-sage. Pummel enemies to a pulp in the Colocheeseum. Use the power of friendship to tackle all 25 levels in couch co-op mode, with or without friendly fire.
5 Years In The Pan
Neal Laurenza, Managing Director at Skymap Games pinpoints what their team loves about fan experiences: “Bacon Man is a brutal game. When we see players yelling in joy from getting a checkpoint, that makes it for us.”
After five years of development the Skymap Games crew are eager to launch their first home cooked game into the wild. As a studio-for-hire, Skymap Games are used to helping other devs bring their titles to life, such as ZED (by Chuck Carter of MYST fame) and recent psychological thriller Perception (Bill Gardner of BioShock Infinite).
The studio have also teamed up with musical talents Braxton Burks (Pokemon Reorchestrated) and Kyle Landry (Youtube & Twitch sensation) for the project, creating a 40 song orchestral soundtrack for the game.
“Braxton and Kyle are two unbelievably talented musicians. At any time we could feed them concept art, and they would run with it and create these massive sprawling orchestral pieces,” explains Laurenza.
Tougher than nails platforming—in air, or on foot—using the patented “Bacon Control System™”.
