Predatory division, nicknamed as the Chicken Police. But that was a decade ago and time had passed them by... Sonny is a semi-alcoholic wreck of a bird on paid leave, while Marty still hides behind the facade of a star-detective.

    On the night of New Year's Eve, a mysterious woman visits Sonny with an errand which goes back to a dark corner of his past. Now, Sonny and Marty are back together again on a case stranger than anything they've ever encountered before!

    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.

    One of those indie diamonds that pop up every once in a while, and manage to speak right to our souls. Truly a one-of-a-kind experience.

    A very special point and click visual novel, Chicken Police is the perfect hard-boiled detective game you always wanted, just populated with animals. Atmospheric and funny, with some fantastic writing and voice work, Chicken Police is one of the best indie games of the year.

    Chicken Police: Paint It Red is a gorgeous looking film noir style game that takes everything you love from the classic buddy-cop movies and mixes it with a huge cast of anthropomorphic characters. The story, voice-overs and adult humour are great making this a must play.

    The classic noire detective game presents an unparalleled art style with its animal characters. Paired with a thrilling story, dry humour and a fitting swing-soundtrack, flaws like clich├ęs and the guessing game that is the interrogation of Chicken Police are not bothersome.

    Other than falling fowl of having too many unnecessary mini-games, Chicken Police intrigues with its eye-catching visuals, superb voice acting and peck-uliar film noir-style story.

But boy... the full gameSo, I don't know what to expect from this, I just loved the trailers, and I tried the demo back in 2019 on Gamescom. But boy... the full game is another league! An intriguing plot within a deeply realized world and super fun characters who you just can't help but love. The voice-acting is superb, the dialog is witty, the music is amazing, and overall, the atmosphere sucks you in immediately, as you hit New Game. (to be totally honest, it will probably suck you in right as you arrive in the main menu) We need more indie gems like this, with a heavy narrative focus and such a big heart, as Chicken Police has. 10/10. (indie)Game of the Year! Expand

I saw the trailer for this a week before the release and it captured my interest. The game Nior style with animals is very intriguing. The game itself is a detective point and click with a 1930's jazz soundtrack. The character interactions and dialog is funny and has great banter with hints at history and backstory. Every new screen is filled with mystery and you have to play to see what happens next. I highly recommend Chicken Police if you want something new to play or if you enjoy point and click games. Its a blast!. Expand

    Not a "game" to be honest. Very little you can do except of clicking on the next dialog. Anyway, this is great story, music and graphic design. Partially interactive decent detective noir story.

    I completed the game.
