Ratloop Asia and Reverb Publishing announced today that their upcoming bird ‘n brawn shooter involving conspiracy, fowl play and an insane amount of bullets – Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken – will be coming home to roost on PC Wednesday, October 15.
Rocketbirds will be available on Steam, GamersGate, Rain Digital Games and GameStop – gamers can preorder now from Rain Digital Games to receive four songs from the original soundtrack as well as an extra co-op character (Agent H.) and weapon (Photon Blaster).
October has always been a great month for gaming, and what better way to start it off than with a hilariously unique side-scrolling action shooter featuring fantastic and addictive gameplay, said Ted Lange, executive producer with Reverb Publishing. There’s something deeply satisfying about unloading clip after clip into a hapless horde of evil birds, and it’s only made better with a friend on co-op.
Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken (which is also available on the PlayStation Network) expands the Rocketbirds universe with new characters, missions, puzzles, exclusive music videos, retro cut scenes, an enhanced Hard difficulty mode and more. Set in Albatropolis, a land full of birds taken over by a totalitarian penguin regime, Hardboiled Chicken, the original Coq of War, must assassinate the evil penguin leader Putzki. His mission will unlock the secrets to his mysterious, hard boiled past and uncover the real enemies of Albatropolis. In single-player mode, take on the role of Hardboiled Chicken and destroy your enemies with a slew of weapons you collect and unlock in each chapter. Master fowl play in the co-op campaign as a pair of Budgie commandos on a mission to save the general’s daughter. Many lives will be destroyed, countless penguins will die, and an astonishing past will be unveiled through a series of unlockable cut scenes and videos.
Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken will be avilable on PC on Wednesday 15th October, priced £6.99.
