Killsquad: a co-op action game that blends twin-stick shooter, hack and slash and drops in a dash of character customization & progression. Join us on a journey to five planets full to the brim with enemies for you to annihilate. Choose your hero, select your skills, weapons, gears and talismans, and unleash hell through waves of relentless enemies and fearsome bosses.
Killsquad deliveres frantic, direct, skill-oriented control on keyboard or gamepad. Shoot fast, dodge fast, or die even faster. Our core are short, 10-20 minute adrenaline pumping contracts you can enjoy solo or with up to 4 friends in co-op. So it feels a bit like a twin stick shooter. Or a hack and slash. Or a top-down dungeon crawler. Or a sci-fi bullet hell. Well, it feels like Killsquad. And it’s a lot of fun to play, solo or with others.
Killsquad features five hero classes for you to choose from, each with their own weapons and skills. These combine melee and ranged characters to fit different playstyles. Along your adventures, you’ll be able to acquire and equip powerful upgrades for each of your skills, which activate during your contracts. And, if you survive, claim your bounty to spend it on tons of new equipment, such as weapons, power-ups and gear, or cosmetics to show off.
Fight your way through +30 contracts in the Campaign Map, visiting five planets along the way. Jump in with your friends or with any other bounty hunter. You can come to the aid of another squad by joining them mid-mission in real time. Cooperate to complete each contract or compete between each other to earn the highest scores.
Obtain weapons and gears with unique characteristics that affect the skills of your hero. Earn the trust of the Unseen by finding their Talismans: strong and complex artifacts with exciting passive effects. But be wary, these abilities at first will be detrimental, but through effort and killing lots of monsters can level up to turn into powerful items. Use everything in combination with your skills and upgrades to create game-breaking builds, and make the heroes your own.
But this party would not be complete without the main course: the enemies. Hordes and waves of disturbing enemies will make their way to you, clawing and bitting till there’s nothing left. But do not worry, you will be fine. It is the bosses which will make you tremble. More than 15 bosses will put you to the test, each with different sets of mechanics and unique ways to be beaten.

As President Anton Rayne, lead Sordland during your first term of this text-based narrative RPG. Navigate a political drama, driven by conversations with your cabinet members and other significant figures in a country with its own complicated history. With looming border conflicts, entrenched corruption, economic crisis and people desperate for reform, as leader the difficult choices fall on your shoulders as you strive to uphold your election promises.
In 1954, the country of Sordland is emerging from a 20-year dictatorship, following a bloody civil war. You play as a charismatic young man, Anton Rayne, who has surprised everyone by rising to the top of the party in power and getting elected as the new President of Sordland.
The people are hungry for democratic reforms after decades under a traditionalist power. The economy is in shambles and the political landscape is shifting. Neighboring superpowers are watching closely, and there are military threats on the horizon.
As President, you have the final say but every choice you make has an impact. Your colleagues, the opposition, corporations; everyone has a point of view. Think and act carefully: once enacted your choices can not be reversed.
Good luck, Mr. President.
The game opens with a prologue in which Anton lives through formative events that shape his history from childhood through to the moment he is elected.
Take this further by customising your look and style.
At the end of Anton’s term, visualize how his choices impacted the country and how he lands on the Sordish political spectrum.
Work closely with the Cabinet and prominent figures to forge strong policies and practices. You will need to keep your allies on your side and carefully consider where you will compromise your values and who you will make an enemy of. Everyone has their own ambitions in play.
Leading a country is demanding. Face constant conflict about which is more important, serving the country or supporting your family. Is it possible to be a good father and a good president at the same time?

MEET THE CHICKEN POLICE
Sonny Featherland and Marty MacChicken were once a legendary detective-duo, the Chicken Police. But that was almost a decade ago, and time had passed them by… Now, Sonny is just a semi-alcoholic wreck of a bird on his paid leave, while Marty still hides behind the facade of a star-detective.
During their last case, they nearly killed each other, and they haven’t spoken ever since…
Now Sonny and Marty are forced to work together on a case that’s weirder and wilder than anything they’ve ever encountered before!
NARRATIVE-DRIVEN, DETECTIVE GAMEPLAY
Chicken Police is a story-rich, dialogue-heavy adventure, 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, or 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 like The Big Sleep, Double Indemnity or Gilda and games like Grim Fandango , Policenauts , Snatcher , L.A.Noire , Aviary Attorney or the Tex Murphy series. The game was also heavily influenced by animated features like Porco Rosso, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and the series: BoJack Horseman.
The noir mood is enhanced by an original musical score, backed up by professional voice acting from the studio that brought you the voices of The Wolf Among Us , Horizon Zero Dawn and Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide 2 .
The game is 100% voice-acted with more than 8+ hours of spoken dialogue!
CLAWVILLE NEVER SLEEPS
“This city never sleeps – they say.
Maybe that’s why it is so cranky all the time.”
The city of Clawville was built as an Edenic place, where predators and prey can live in peace. But the dream remained just a dream while Clawville slowly became the darkest corner of all the Wilderness.
Chicken Police is a satire, which recalls the mood and atmosphere of the 40’s film-noir classics, 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…
QUOTES ABOUT US
FORBES: “It’s also clear from the trailer that its dark story will be pretty funny, with plenty of scope to establish it as one of the more unique releases in its genre. Needless to say, there’ll be absolutely nothing like it released during 2020, and hopefully, it’ll be as brilliant as it is different.”
DESCTRUCTOID: “I know I mostly cover animal-based games, but few have ever stopped me dead in my tracks like this one. I mean, did you hear that song in the trailer? That’s original music, baby! I’m a sucker for games with quirky themes and original music, so of course, I took notice to this one straight away. Mix that with the animals-as-people motif and spot-on detective visuals, and yeah I didn’t really stand a chance.”
ROCK PAPER SHOTGUN: “Fortunately I’m batting my jet-lagged eyes at Chicken Police, an upcoming noir detective adventure with grizzled chickens and a very good raccoon. It’s a point and clicker, which means I’ll almost certainly never play it. But I’d still like you to revel in this trailer with me. It’s a cinematographic masterpiece.”
ALPHA BETA GAMER: “It really nails the film noir vibe it’s going for. Meanwhile, the voice acting is excellent throughout, the story is interesting and the writing is very witty, packed full of cynical humor and animal-based puns. A ridiculous and riveting hardboiled detective adventure that will give you a clucking good time.”
The year is 2119. A turning point has begun in the history of space. The moment of the beginning of the colonial development of objects of the solar system.
