Patch 1.2.0 Now Live!


Thank you to everyone that has picked up and played Pigsaw! This is the biggest patch yet and aims to clean up a lot of the rough edges that had players getting frustrated or found the game difficult for the wrong reasons. Most notably the slippery movement in combination with the platforming was breaking players souls so I tightened all that up. The combat has also been rebalanced to place a larger emphasis on the shotgun and pipe as opposed to the barrel nuke meta. Enjoy!

I had to give up on the last level (not sure if I'll return to this game to finish it), but I found this to be a good concept for a horror game overall and I had quite a bit of fun with it, especially with how you have very limited supplies as this brought an extra layer of difficulty to it. Some of the controls could use a lot of work though. The platforming bit in the middle, for instance, annoyed me quite a lot. If this gets another update though, I'll probably play it. Regardless, best of luck to you with this game and thanks very much for offering it for free!
