DESCRIPTION
A wild tale of love, death, chickens, and redemption! Chicken Police is a buddy-cop noir adventure, with a carefully crafted world, a gritty story, and lots of absurd humor. The game mixes elements of classic adventure games with visual novel-style storytelling
EXPERIENCE
What happens when Frank Miller’s Sin City walks into a Buddy Cop movie about a couple of anthropomorphic Chickens in a town full of animals, murder, class warfare and racism? Well you get this clucking thing.

Heading on down to Clawville! Mesmerizing. Bwock bwock
Art: Clucking cool style that takes a minute to get used to. Noir live action anamorphic characters in a steamy city. Animal heads on human bodies. This game gets my costuming award for indie games of 2020
Animation: Pose to Pose pivot point movement that works in the context of this game.
Music/Effects: The music pulls (mostly jazz noir) really pulls you into the moment.
V/O: Very competent voice over. I would listen to this as an audiobook anyday.
World Building: Built on a lot of tropes but in a good way. A variation on theme that allows exploration into some serious topics like race relations, social classes and relevant issues of today and yesterday.
Currency: Good Will
Gameplay/Loop: Explore, Investigate, Question and some simple puzzle solving.
AI/NPCs: The NPCs are on rails. We are revealing a story and have a small amount of control over relationships.
Controls: Mouse clicks. Clicky Clicky.
Interface: Minimal. Very polished and appropriate to the style and theme of the game.
Replay/Endgame: Some replay value inline. No manual save system so you go from start to finish and then you would have to start all over again. Probably a one time play through and then wait a while and forget everything. I didn’t reach the endgame. But I think I know where it is going.
Score: 9 Dames out of 10 Walking in and out of my Clucking life
