Snout Action •

Specifically, the game worked like this: there was a wall on the screen, and the pig had to direct a cursor around that wall, using only their snout and a joystick. Originally, the video game was created for monkeys, who were able to use their opposable thumbs to win — could pigs pull off the same feat with their noses? If so, they got food.
