Hoo boy, how to describe this one? Chicken Police is a noir adventure game starring two down-and-out chicken detectives. When a woman comes knocking on Sonny Featherland's (yes, really) door, he must drag his partner Marty MacChicken (again, really) into a complex noir web of characters and motivations.

The gameplay involves interrogating characters, exploring the city of Clawville, and gradually uncovering the mystery behind Sonny's disgraceful dismissal from the titular chicken police. This game will probably make the perfect companion piece to Blacksad: Under the Skin. You wait for one animal-themed noir story and two come along at the same time. Typical, eh?

Developer Quote

Chicken Police is an "Orwellesque Buddycop Noir Adventure", with a carefully crafted world, a gritty, dark story, and absurd humor. The game mixes elements of story-rich adventures with visual novel style dialogue-heavy storytelling, complete with a complex interrogation system, detective gameplay, and an ever-changing city.
