Game: Gird Up Your Loins

Gird Up Your Loins is a twisted adventure through a world defined by rampant consumerism. Players play as a constantly hungry pig in search of bacon, but be careful - eat too much and you'll get a heart attack. However, succumb to commercial pressure and obsessively exercise your way to an unrealistic ideal, and you'll die of starvation. With a visual style inspired by Tim Burton, Earthworm Jim, the Oddworld series, general nightmares and lots of pork products, the only way to survive such a bleak world is to Gird Up Your Loins. Use arrow keys to move and jump. Eat bacon to gain weight to push buttons and smash through breakable walls/floors. Move or go on treadmills to get thinner and jump higher. But keep an ear to maintain your heartrate, too fast or too slow will kill you!
