When Pigs Fly is a game about teaching yourself to fly. It's not easy! Those big, feathery wings will help you take to the air, but they're also delicate. Bump into the wall and feathers will fly! You'll have to steer through this trecherous cavern if you want to see the sky again.

The SPACEBAR, SHIFT or Z all work.
Use the LEFT and RIGHT arrows to steer while off the ground.
The M key mutes the game. The S key just turns off the squealing.
If you quit in the middle of the game your place will be saved! Don't worry.

When Pigs Fly is an Auntie Pixelante game!

Edmund McMillen really helped this game to take flight. And Tom Fulp was amazing enough to ensure it stayed there. Thanks!

Heres the thing

It is unique and it is adicting but it is very hard if you get frusterated easy. Most unique Game I've ever played. I like the bit style too.

Ironic. Allegorical. AMAZING.

The irony of a flying pig, stuck in a cave. Har har, great stuff. The pig travels through the cave of life, the cave of HELL, to realize his dream. A dream all others would claim impossible to make a reality, yet he finds himself with a pair of wings. This innocent swine travels through hell to give birth to a miracle, to become the idol of all those who wake up in the morning and say: "THE IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING." But the pig remembers that no miracle is free. He must prove his character by facing the fires of hell before experiencing the freedom waiting for him in the heavens beyond.

I know it's just a game, but this one meant something to me. I'm a sucker for the minimalist/pixel games. Keep 'em comin'?

Nerve Racking

I hate this game...but i LOVE IT because it's so annoying. Its fun yet challenging. The sounds from dieing is annoying but you learn to just zone them out.

Overall, it's one of the better games I've played.

very fun yo

this game has a nice charm to it and a level of challenge that was beatable and not impossible or too easy. those who complain that it's too tough have no skills, yo. overall, great job on the game.
