Politically-incorrect, Don Quixote-inspired 2.5D action-platformer ‘CYBER CHICKEN’ launches November 21 on Steam

Nothing like some ‘fowl play’ to get the blood pumping, eh? Introducing the toughest, poultry-est hero of them all: an 8-foot, 375-pound killing machine … CYBER CHICKEN!

Published by Groupees Interactive and developed by indie studio WHOA!, Cyber Chicken is a 2.5D side-scrolling action adventure platformer set in a dystopian New York City of the future. Play as the ferocious Cyber Chicken, a military-grade cyber-organism facing a cyberpunk revolt in this balls-to-the-wall homage to ‘80s action heroes.

The Fakebook, Big Bucks Coffee, and intergalactic leader GW have played you for a fool. They had you wasting your time chasing after scrawny cyberpunks instead of the real villains. It’s time to take these corporate giants down … one bullet at a time.

Equip a Magnum 357,000, Napalm Flamethrower, Sawed-Off Howitzer, Thermonuclear Dual Uzis, and more to deal some real damage to the enemy. You can also upgrade your weapons and platforming abilities at Big Bucks vending machines — but avoid going into debt: If you owe money (and fail to pay on time), the nastiest corporate accountant known to man (“The Collector”) will track you, kill you — then steal all of your hard earned upgrades!

Ready to finally find out why the (cyber) chicken crossed the road? 🙂

Key Features
  • Terminate enemies with Cyber Chicken’s multi-weapon arsenal and skill set with over 45 upgrades.
  • Double-jump, dash, ground-stomp and wall-jump your way through more than 13 levels in a semi-open world — upgrading to unlock new areas.
  • Buy using credit at Big Bucks Vending machines — but make sure to pay back your debts in time … or face the wrath of “The Collector”! (Get defeated, and he will repossess upgrades to repay your debt.)
  • Enjoy a fully voice acted cast and soundtrack featuring 40 original tracks.
  • Comic book-style, story-driven gameplay with lots of comedic moments to balance the mayhem.
  • Custom keybindings with support for mouse and keyboard or controller.
