Sonny is a semi-alcoholic wreck of a bird on paid leave, while Marty still hides behindSonny Featherland and Marty MacChicken were once legendary detective partners in Clawville PD. 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.

    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.

    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.

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

    The game is a film noir adventure which isn't a total disaster but it has some serious flaws:
    1. The story is extremely linear and the gameplay not challenging to the point of being almost like a novel with minor exceptions
    2. The choices that score the interrogations are poorly designed and half of the time they are unintentionally misleading
    3. Several characters and dialogues are completely redundant or out place making the game half of the time just boring
    At the end of the day if you're extremely into film noir adventuring you might like it but it's generally a flawed game.

Animal heads on human bodies are all there is to drive the game. Pros are the artwork and voice-over work, but that's just a shell that needs to be on a good story for it to amount to anything worth playing. Expand
