Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken Announced For PSN

News Platformer Playstation 3 Shooter Sony

Now, what do you get when you mix a chicken in a very bad mood, a collection of different weapons, a totalitarian governement headed by penguins and a thirst to bring it down? You get Ratloop Asia’s Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, announced for release on the PSN. The game will hatch upon the world on October 18th at the price of US$11.99.

This platform adventure game follows the exploits of Hardboiled Chicken, a rebel who’s ultimate goal is to take down authority… I mean the penguin government of Albatropolis. He wants to take down the head penguin, who has become a totalitarian stooge running the city to the ground. There is also a co-op storyline. You and a friend will become two budgies on a mission to save the general’s daughter.

So, what can we expect from Hardboiled Chicken and his mission of mass destruction:

  • 15 Chapters in the Solo Campaign.
  • 10 Chapters in the Co-Op Campaign.
  • An assortment of puzzles throughout the levels.
  • Stereoscopic 3D support.
  • Mini-stories about Hardboiled’s past and the truth behind the penguin leader and his government.
  • Various weapons, including pistols, shotguns, Uzis, MP5s, M60s, AK-47s and the ultimate weapon… Brain Bugs!
  • Exclusive music from indie band New World Revolution plus unlockable music videos.

This game has only been announced for a US release. So, are you going to save the city from a crazed up penguin and its penguin filled government? Sounds like some penguins have some explaining to do, but even then, Hardboiled Chicken might not give them the chance.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
