When Chicken Police: Paint it RED! launched in 2020, the narrative noir adventure was lauded by the press and received many awards for its complex interrogation system, mystery-solving detective gameplay, and visual style consisting of artistic photo manipulation and lifelike 3D backgrounds. It became one of Metacritic’s best 100 PC Games that year, and IGN Japan dubbed it “Game Animal Of The Year” (GAOTY).

Experience more of the series’s grim story, gritty atmosphere and absurd humor, wrapped up in a mystery-solving investigation inspired by point-and-click adventures and visual novels.
In this character-driven film noir detective adventure, you must gather clues, interrogate suspects, and use your creativity to solve problems in a variety of ways to uncover a world-shattering conspiracy. While freely exploring Clawville and its 35+ locations, you will meet more than 30 fully dubbed characters, each with their own role to play in this dramatic tale of murder, betrayal and love. Besides the main story, there will be a myriad of side quests, pathways and opportunities to explore in Chicken Police: Into the HIVE!
