Your goal is to die in this puzzle platformer so that you can join your parents in pig heaven.
Disclaimer: I’ve only spent half an hour playing this game.
When I first launched Squishy the Suicidal Pig, I was surprised by how small the window was (960 x 540 pixels) with no option to change it. The only setting was to stretch the game to fullscreen; there weren’t even audio settings. I couldn’t even use my mouse to navigate through the menus. Then I tried to take a screenshot via Steam’s built-in screenshot functionality, which didn’t really work (see screenshot on right). All of that plus a semi-hard-to-read font and misspellings like “basicly” make for a game that is severely lacking polish.
That said, I think Squishy is a pretty clever concept because the goal is not to survive, but to die. The puzzles are well-designed and challenging and I like the bright, colorful art.
I’m not sure what I paid for this game, but it’s currently on sale for $0.33. At that price, it’s worth picking up in spite of its flaws. You’ll even get some of your money back by selling trading cards.
