There are a few detective noirs games out there, but one with two anthropomorphic roosters taking center stage is perhaps a first.
Chicken Police, which is developed by The Wild Gentlemen is heavily inspired by classic film noir movies of the 40’s era. It follows the tale of two rooster detective’s pursuits in the big gritty city of Clawville. The renowned detective team known as the Chicken Police composed of Sonny Featherland and Marty MacChicken are thrown back together many years after their heyday to take on a capper that is more treacherous than any other case they have ever encountered. These buddy-cops are sure to rough up some feathers in the process.
The game is a point and click exploit, told through a narrative-driven plot with a classic film noir styling. The game utilizes both 2D and 3D illustrations to give a vintage cinematic vibe to the experience, accompanied by over 8 hours of spoken dialogue. You can check out the full cinematic trailer for Chicken Police above and witness the unique aesthetics for yourself.
