The following is a narrative from the perspective of the pig in the video game “Save The Sheriff”

I may be dirty, smelly, and gross; but hey I’m pink. That should count for something, right?
Regardless, I won’t let the human stereotype of pigs hold me back from saving my master. Not only have those scoundrels taken all of the town’s money, they have also taken hostage my town’s beloved sheriff.
Now the robbers will have to face my wrath. The wrath of a small, some would say cute, little pink pig. I am the sheriff’s number one pet and I know I am his only hope; especially since the Humans are currently consumed by panic and disorganization.
Where could those bandits have taken him? … Only time and adventure will tell.
The Colorado sun is hot and unforgiving. I wish the desert had mud pits, like in the village valley, but any sort of water is painfully absent. My daily mud baths will just have to be put on hold during my search. Apparently my appetite will have to suffer too. I see barley any vegetation for miles and my stomach is already starting to grumble with hunger. In the rush to catch the bandits I forgot to pack a lunch. How uncharacteristic for a pig to forget food! The absence of my master must really be affecting me.
As the day progresses the afternoon heat becomes more intense and the obstacles of the dry desert become ever more present. My stomach is still growling with hunger but I must ignore this discomfort and keep an alert mind. At this point finding food is the least of my concerns.
Frogs and snakes, creatures I already find most abominable, become more vicious and a main enemy in my quest for justice deep in the desert. However, I am no weak individual. With one clean swoop I can eliminate any predator. The element of surprise is the only tactic an attacker can have against me. With every valley I jump, every mountain I climb, and every turn I make, there – waiting for me – are the attacks of villainous desperados.
Even with careful caution I am poisoned by snakes, hit by frogs, and attacked by bandits. I am left paralyzed, to die. But, my will for justice is strong. I will recover and continue my journey into the unknown to prove my loyalty to my town and to my sheriff.
Come with me, to Save the Sheriff.
