About This Game

Porcunipine is a couch multiplayer about balding porcupines fighting courageously for survival using their very last pointy quills.


The concept of the game is simple: You are a majestic and terribly violent porcunipine. You have one quill which you can shoot at your opponents. Once you shoot, you have to go and pick up that quill before you can shoot again. Your quill rebounds from walls and obstacles, and can kill you just as easily as it can kill your enemies.

FIGHT to the death with sharp needles of pain

COLLECT the skulls of your fallen enemies

Did much research before reviewing this game.
Learned that the porcupine mating ritual involves a vicious battle—and urination on the female.
Having only played a few single player rounds there are no golden showers to be found yet.
Time will tell.
Got happy when Curve Digital popped on the screen
They always deliver a fun time.
The production is slick and it should be played with other members of your squad.
You are a no nonsense porcupine with hairloss
and
it is good.

Really fun game. I like the idea of a physics-shooter where you have to go back and pick up your projectile instead of ot her shooting games where you just spam.

Although the game feels unfinished. Maybe add more features like online multiplayer and maybe get extra points when you kill an enemy whith a needle that bounced against the wall.

Although you can't really get the full gameplay unless you have a friend or family member nearby, you atleast have practice mode.

I am not sure if it's worth the FULL price. Well. Maybe it does.
But the game itself is ♥♥♥♥ING awesome. I got it in my wishlist since forever and I just played it with my brother.

Tight controls, awesome chip tune music and a lot of ROFL moments.

RECOMMENDED! :)

PS: I am actually shocked of how little reviews this game has. People; if you enjoy local multiplayer games, support the developers leaving a good review! :)

I've had a 90% discount on this and honestly I would've bought it anyway. It's one of those games which you just can't stop playing because you want to beat your highscore. Like some kind of Flappy Bird.

The only annoyance is that I have to shoot with the J key. I couldn't yet find controls settings and I would really like if I could shoot with something else, like Enter...or even with the mouse.

cute game tho

Our video on Porcunipine:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s70Hqw4mpA0

We had a lot of fun with Porcunipine, Porcunipine is a topdown, arena hedgehog-spike shooter developed by Big Green Pillow in which you fight either with 1 - 4 human players or fight versus AI in a thrilling arena match.

You can also play the single player version, Survival, in which you need to kill waves of enemies with increasing difficulty. This gamemode features an online leaderboard, there is much fun and competition to be had.

We would rate it a 7.5/10 as co-op experience, we would give the solo gameplay 6/10.

Very simple idea, easy to pick and have Instant action and pure fun...

The sounds effects are hilarious and translate the action in a very bizarre way.
Didn't tried local multiplayer yet, but survival mode is very enjoyable :)

Simple and damn quick arena one-stick shooter with beautiful art, character & interface design and fitting music (8-bit styled yet not tiresome, very smooth and different). It's got high quality engineworks - no lags experienced at all! Action is all about adorable porcupines getting dramatically bald and now they fight for survival with one needle left each... you shoot it in the direction you move and the 2d pseudo-phisics here is totally allright! The point is you have to collect your shot back when it bounces off walls and falls somewhere, can't catch it mid-flight.. the most fun comes from occasionate suicides, when you kill 2 enemies with one shot, deflecting off two surfaces but weirdly the trajectory ends right in your own ars while you've been trying to evade the mole which has just popped out of the ground! It's lightning-quick, crazy random in a good sense and really feels nice, even singleplayer!

Простая и чертовски быстрая стрелялка со стрельбой по направлению движения на арене с прекрасными отрисовкой, дизайном интерфейса и персонажей, и с подходящей музыкой (в стиле 8-бит, но очень мягкая, не утомляет). Движок высококачественен - торможения замечено не было! Действо происходит по поводу очаровательных дикообразов, трагически лысеющих, так что теперь они сражаются за выживание с одной оставшейся иглой на брата... стреляем по ходу движения, а двухмерная псевдофизика реализована на отлично! Фишка в том, что снаряд нужно забрать обратно там, где он упал после отскоков, поймать на лету не получится... самый прикол в неожиданных самоубийствах, когда дважды отскочив от поверхностей и убив двоих, траектория все-таки оканчивается прямо у героя в заднице, потому что он пытался увернуться от вылезшего из земли крота! Игра скоростная, в хорошем смысле полна случайностей, и весьма приятна, даже в одиночном режиме.

This is just the right game for parties!
So 4 people can play together at a time, but its funny to watch when you're waiting for your turn too.
It's at the same time incredibly cute and bloody. Kinda in the same way it's easy to play but also quite challenging once you and your friends get good at it.

It's meant for 4-player gameplay, but I managed to have fun playing alone with the bots. There's a solo mode too with steam Leaderboards, which is nice. Menus overall could be better, yes, but the game really shines on gameplay.

Will definitely keep playing it with my friends, goes great with beer :)

Deliriously addictive, hilariously violent, and all around just amazing, Porcunipine is simple brutal amusement. Playing as a handful of near-balding porcupines, you must destroy all the baddies with one single, thankfully retrievable, super sharp quill. Your quill is a one shot masterpiece but you are just as susceptible too! I'm reminded of Titan Souls with that need to be as precise as possible and rebound shots are king here. I had a blast playing it as you can see in the video and I strongly recommend it, for yourself, for your friends, and for your inner violent porcupine! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yud4t0xzJvo

Just played for my channel and OMG! THIS GAME IS AWESOME!
For a lover of bomberman games, this game is perfect!Of course instead of guys exploding each other, you have porcupines throwing spikes at them. The mechanic is easy and thats make de game fun.

So get this game, get your friends and play this! You will not regret :D

I first played this game at Play Blackpool, just before it was released, and after just a few minutes, I knew it was an excellent party game along the lines of Chompy Chomp Chomp and Bomberman. I thoroughly recommend this as a fantastic pick up and play party game.

I had trouble getting the multiplayer to work with generic USB controllers (even with the x360ce software) but with 4 Xbox 360 controllers, it works a treat with no configuration needed.

Fun, cute looking party game that has the gimmick that you will get killed by your own shots a lot. It does not have a lot of depth, but it's okay to play every once in a while, especially with kids or people that aren't gamers.
