A Pygmy at the Winch

The Winch is a device used in the sacrifice ritual that first appeared in Ep 33: A Pygmy A Day Keeps The Ape Away. It is wooden, round and is coloured brown.


The winch is exclusive to Ape Mountain. To make it work, you must first toggle the winch icon on. When toggled on, drop a Pygmy on it and it will become a Possessed Pygmy. Draw a circle around the winch to make the Pygmy operate it, which will raise the Pygmy in the altar. If you winch it until the skulls on the altar have a yellow glow from their eyes, then it is ready for summoning the giant ape with the bongos (if the torches are lit as well). Winching too hard will cause the Pygmy in the altar to rip apart. If the giant ape is present when this happens he will get angry and will squash the Pygmies on the winch and bongos.


  • In the skin packs, the winch is used as the image for Ape Mountain extras.
  • This is one of the ways to make a Possessed Pygmy.
