Bacon Man is like Hamlet, but with more ham

Bacon Man is an action platformer about food and the ferocious fight for freedom. Fight, shoot or evade your way through tougher-than-nails levels as one of four unique characters, each with their own playstyle. Take on the role of Bacon Man and battle through the food groups to confront those who’ve condemned you. It’s up to you to clear his name and reclaim his rightful place as King of Meat.

Bacon Man is a full 3D side-scrolling action platforming game. It mixes fighting, shooting, and physics-based abilities to create a challenging experience in a beautifully rendered world inspired by the food groups. Bacon Man is crafted in the spirit of some of our favorite childhood titles, such as Earthworm Jim, the Rayman series, and Mega Man X.

Bacon Man: An Adventure just launched on Steam for $19.99! Mac, Linux, and Xbox One versions will follow later.

This hardcore platformer will challenge you to the biggest food fight you’ve ever encountered. 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.

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).


Whether you’re in for it for the music, difficulty, nostalgia or the sweet food puns, Bacon Man: An Adventure has a full plate to offer.

Monster Energy Supercross Review

# Meh... The last Supercross/Motocross/Motorcycle game that I remember playing is Motocross Madness 2 for the PC like 15 years ago so to just say that I am not really a fan of this whole genre of racing games doesn't even begin to cover it.

# Yeah, UFC 3 is a pretty good game! And this is coming from a guy who isn't really a fan of UFC, hasn't played first two games and don’t know any of the fighters in the game apart from McGregor and Rhonda.
