Hamlet City Life - Inter-Pig Chatter


Recommended Posts

So I've given this a little more thought and I think there's a lot of potential in the inter-pig chatter. Especially with Klei's fun ways of writing and the introduction of the pig civilization. Right now pigs are basically trading posts, they just walk around telling the player to bring them stuff and occasionally greeting them. Hamlet doesn't feel much like a city or a civilization that exists and thrives when the player isn't there.

That could be solved by letting the pigs have short exchanges amongst themselves. Those could serve various purpose too!

Some examples of what I mean (pardon no olde Englando, I'm no good at that so I won't clown around).

 

1. Jokes about the game/world mechanics

Pig A: I'm afraid the Snaptooths are up to something.

Pig B: Aye, they're creeping in ever closer.

 

2. Gossip about the player (could depend on character too)

Pig A: Do you like the new unpig?

Pig B: It has weird teeth.

 

3. Obscure hints about some game mechanics

Pig A: Full moon is coming.

Pig B: Check your house for any lost pikos.

 

4. Recipe clues

Pig A: I ate too many nettle rolls.

Pig B: Same. All the sticks didn't sit well.

 

5. Just pig stuff

Pig A: Have you ever eaten a glowfly cocoon?

Pig B: Yes and do not. Tastes worse than ground rot.

 

6. Lore/worldbuilding seen through pig eyes

Pig A: Can you believe there's a whole world below us?

Pig B: Don't be silly. It's just fairytales.

Oooh! I love this, I love it! It's a super nice concept!

Ditto and character specific gossip would be really funny:

Pig A: Do you like the new Unpig? 

Wilson:

It's hairy

Willow:

It smells like charcoal.

Wendy:

It scares me

Wolfgang:

It smells sweaty

WX-78:

It's rusty

Wickerbottom: 

It's quiet

Maxwell:

It has a big nose.

etc.

Those could use some improvement, but it's a good start. You'd really sell the idea to Klei more if you made it more like how they actually talk in game: [Wilson] "MOST UNUSUAL HAIR COMES THIS WAY!"
Good luck!

They never talk to each other because they are cannibalism pigmen, and when one of their kind fall, they just silently gather together and enjoy the meal. Therefore the text should go like this

Pig A: ....

Pig B: ....

Pig C: ....
