Hi, I'm Ruthie Edwards. I programmed, designed, and composed the audio for this game. I built this game for Ludum Dare 34 but updated it a year later with new powerups, animations, and menu features. I had a superb time playtesting it at MAGFest (below) but I don't plan to keep developing this game. I've open sourced the code and assets, so feel free to play around with them or use them to make something else quirky and fun.

Omnomnomnomnommm, the best looking eating game I ever saw! :D The pixel art is absolutely stunning and cute, and it was great to see how big the piggy could become. It's a casual, but super fun little game. <3 Congratulations for the 9th place in the graphics category of the Ludum Dare 34 with this one, it was well deserved. :) Happily I recommended this game in an article on our blog and also uploaded a little gameplay video of it. :D Keep up the good work!

Best wishes,

Thank you for the kind words! It means a lot, especially on an old game that I'm still very fond of.

Heh, same here! It was so much fun to take a look on that after all the time that passed by since the Ludum Dare 34. :) It's still a super cute casual game. <3
