Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Jun 232023

It seems I had good timing when I decided to play Chicken Police – Paint in RED back in May as part of our mystery game celebration, because a sequel is on the way!

Yesterday, the developers announced Chicken Police – Into the Hive.

The Hive is a location that was mentioned during the first Chicken Police, but never visited.

In this world of anthropomorphic animals, the Hive is where a lot of insects live. Tension with the Hive and prejudice against insects are part of Chicken Police’s backdrop, so it should be interesting to see what happens now that the sequel is taking us into the Hive.

(While playing the first game, I expected to go there because of how often it was referenced, but instead it was worldbuilding unrelated to the current mystery. It makes sense that it would take center stage for a sequel.)

According to the description on the game’s Steam page, Sonny and Marty investigate a new case that takes them into the Hive, where they come across a worldwide conspiracy. It also says they’ll “face the darkest reaches of their past.”

It’s currently set for 2024.

The first Chicken Police left me pleasantly surprised by how its bizarre premise of playing a chicken detective led to a believable world and compelling noir mystery. I’m looking forward to seeing what the sequel has in store.

  1. Sounds interesting! Your blog did get me interested in trying this game out (…eventually) so I hope this one lives up to the first!
