Pineapple on Pizza: Can a Video Game Convey a Flavour!?

Pineapple on Pizza the video game

From two-person indie team Majorariatto in Mallorca of Spain, here we have the short but sweet Pineapple on Pizza. The notorious Hawaiian pizza is always controversial, but this title asks… can a video game convey a flavour?

At just under 10 minutes in length, this free romp on Steam has a bloody good go at trying to make some sort of point. And what the hey?! It’s daft fun.

Pineapple on Pizza Video Game Addresses the Horrors of Pineapple on Pizza

Yeah, so we completed this wee gem in under five minutes. You begin the game on a happy, delightful island where local tribes are dancing with much merriment.

You explore the island, completing some Steam accomplishments by checking stuff out, and then when you’re bored of that you can climb the volcano.

That thing is the centrepiece of the island. Up you go, into the volcano you can plunge, and then all hell lets loose. If you’ve got a few spare minutes, watch it all unfold.

Yeah, so the stupid, black humour ending had us laughing quite a bit. Otherwise this game had almost nothing to do with pineapple on pizza, to be honest.

We’ll mark it down for that. Boo! Hiss!

What we do quite like is the (probably irritatingly, after a bit) catchy song that goes with proceedings. Well worth a brief listen.

Yes. That’s the game. It strikes us as an early effort by Majorariatto to test the waters before going off to make a full title.

But for what it is, Pineapple on Pizza actually into the Untitled Goose Game genre of “jerk games”. That’s where you go off and be casually malicious.

Majorariatto describes its game thusly:

“Pineapple on pizza is a short game about exploring an island full of dancing people, finding a way to ruin the party, and unexpectedly enjoying it.”

Yes. We did enjoy it.

The idea is to ruin the fun all the dancing people are having. And you do that in fine style, with the island swamped by hellish lava whilst locals flee in panic. It made us laugh (yes, we’re evil… we know it).


Dispense with some gibberish!
