"The Wild Gentlemen" is an independent game studio, working on its first game: Chicken Police, the "Orwellesque Buddycop Noir Adventure". The team consists of six core members and four part-time contributors. Members of our team have worked on projects like The Witcher 3, Call of Duty WWII, Warhammer: Mark of Chaos, Crysis series, Haegemonia or Ryse: Son of Rome. While individually most of us have been active members of the games industry for over a decade, Chicken Police is our first project together. We are determined to release our game in Q1 of 2020.
Chicken Police is a unique noir adventure set in the fictional world of the Wilderness, featuring narrative-based gameplay, gritty themes and an absurd, unique sense of humor.A CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE
The imagery of Chicken Police was inspired by the film noir movies of the '40s (like The Big Sleep, Gilda or Double Indemnity) and games like Grim Fandango and Snatcher. The game uses a unique blend of 2D and 3D designs and contemporary visuals of old cinema.THE ANIMAL NOIR ADVENTURE GAME

Now they're back together again on a case bigger and much more dangerous than anything they've ever encountered before.EXPLORE THE CITY OF CLAWVILLE

I simply must have it!
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.
