Hothead Games Announces The Baconing

VANCOUVER - May 26, 2011

Hothead Games today announced summer release plans for The Baconing, a new stand-alone experience about the mythology of the Bacon Fires.

In The Baconing, players will be able to settle in for a lot of fun, meeting some old friends and new acquaintances in this new high profile comical adventure.

Bob from Marketing commented:

“With an epic name such as 'The Baconing' we didn’t want to detract from one of the most memorable video game names in history, so we created a trailer that shows only the title logo. This trailer explains half of the story about how we arrived at this name, the other half of this story is down to one of our loyal fans.”

The game is currently in development for PC, Mac and other formats and is scheduled for release in late summer.
