Pig Island - Simply Fancy (3 stars)

This article is from 2008.

These Australian players call themselves Pig Island, but they may as well hail from Mars. Their absurd adventure pits witless non-hero Brian, his spunky daughter and possibly robotic son against stock fantasy characters and a manta ray. Each line, character or incongruous pop song is a leftfield oddity which creates a bewildering whole.
