The Baconing is a simple and short action RPG with a humorous setting and plot. The settings are mostly interesting and they change at a decent pace. Humour is derived from decently written dialoque as well as absurd enviroments, items and creatures. Main gameplay revolves around killing numerous amounts of baddies.
Though the visual aesthetic is generally appealing, the simple gameplay gets really repetitive quick. Unfortunately, same goes for the humour. RPG's are really good targets for parody, but it seems like the Baconing misses the point on occasion and when it hits the target, it doesn't quite have the right delivery. The voice acting of the main character gets really grating by the end, even though the game isn't that long.
On top of that, the Baconing was clearly made for a controller in mind. Though playing with mouse and keyboard is serviceable, it is occasionally clunky and can get annoying in big group fights.
