George Orwell's Animal Farm

To any literature fans out there, I just finished Orwell's "Animal Farm" (trying to brush up on some of the classics) for my first time, and when I got the end, I came across a section that immediately made me think of aamfp. It's the very last paragraph in the book, so obviously a big spoiler (although, out of context, it won't really make any sense until you're a good way through the book).

Spoiler below!

Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.


That particular passage struck me, especially after all this talk of the symbolism of man as "pig." Can't help but think the devs were Orwell fans as well.

So monster(s) will shapeshift. If really something happens like that, it will be classy. While observing NPCs, they might turn to pig suddenly, sounds so exciting. If i read this book and could be the one of the devs, i would definitely do it. ^^

We must destroy it--we can't let the pinkos win! Domino Theory and all that!

RE: George Orwell's Animal Farm

The pigs grew tired of humans butchering pigs for food so they took over the slaughterhouse and now they slaughter pigs for food. Which they eat, 'cuz they're communists.....^@)
