The Baconing Teaser Trailer

Hothead Games has released a great teaser for an upcoming game titled only “The Baconing”. Apparently, they were going to go with another name, but the domain was already registered so they went with that one, lol. The game is slated for release this Summer on the Mac, PC, and several other formats. Additional details are sketchy at best but more info is sure to follow!

“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.”
