MEET THE CHICKEN POLICE Sonny Featherland and Marty MacChicken were once a legendary detective-duo, called the Chicken Police. But that was almost a decade ago, and time had ruthlessly passed them by. Now Sonny and Marty are forced to work together on a case that is weirder than anything they've ever encountered before! NARRATIVE-DRIVEN, DETECTIVE GAMEPLAY Chicken Police is a story-rich and dialogue-heavy game combining elements of the visual novels and classic adventure games. The game has more than 30 characters to talk to, with some having to be seriously interrogated. Collect tons of clues, evidence, and highly sensitive personal information from the shady characters of Clawville to use ruthlessly against them! EXPLORE THE CITY OF CLAWVILLE (AGAIN, AND AGAIN...) There are more than 30 places to visit and some of them will change several times during the story. You can return to previous locations on several occasions, to find hidden secrets, meet new characters and gather information about the world and its inhabitants. A CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE Chicken Police has a weirdly stunning visual style made with the usage of real photos and photo-realistic 3D backgrounds, inspired by classic film-noir movies and influenced by animated features. Its noir mood is enhanced by an original music soundtrack, backed up by professional voice acting for all characters with more than 8 hours of spoken dialogue! Chicken Police is a satire, which recalls the mood and atmosphere of the 40's film-noir movies, and as the best noirs and hardboiled detective stories, it's so gritty and hopeless, that it can only be served with a lot of cynical humor. KEY FEATURES - A thrilling, rich storyline with a classic film-noir twist - Professional voiceover with more than 8 hours of spoken dialogue! - A carefully crafted, "colorful" world - A complex interrogation system - More than 30 unique, fully voiced characters - A cinematic film-noir like experience with more than 20 cutscenes! - Lots of clues, information, and collectibles to find - A beautiful original soundtrack

Chicken Police: Paint it red! is a visual novel that knows how to disguise itself as a graphic adventure. Creative universe with sound and visual care. A fantastic tribute to the noir films and animals. The functionality and usability of the menus could be better as well as the puzzles and other interaction elements.

Chicken Police is a noire style point and click visual novel. It features a dark and compelling central mystery and a superbly voice-acted cast of bizarre characters. It is a clucking good time!

A slick noir mystery with an intoxicating atmosphere and unmatched aesthetics. Combined with its sharp, campy writing and an intriguing storyline, Chicken Police is an indie gem that shouldn't be missed.

Chicken Police: Paint It Red proves you can creat a smart, original game even by putting together pieces of 40's noir movies with old point&click adventures and painting it all in cool B&W visual style. The smart move is adding animals to the equation: grumpy roosters and sexy cats lead to sharp dialogues and funny wordplays, while at the same time showing what is wrong in human nature. The plot may not be the most original, but Chicken Police is definitely worth playing.
