Investigate Insects in Chicken Police: Into the HIVE!’s Playable Demo July 17 Ahead of BitSummit Drift

BUDAPEST, Hungary – July 10, 2024 – Chicken Police: Into the HIVE!, the thrilling film-noir detective adventure in which you must uncover a world-scale conspiracy from developer The Wild Gentlemen and published by Joystick Ventures, will exhibit at BitSummit Drift 2024, taking place Friday, July 19 through Sunday, July 21 in Kyoto, Japan. Those unable to attend can play the demo on Steam starting Wednesday, July 17 on Steam for PC, with early preview opportunities available for media and content creators.

Weave a web of red string on the nearest conspiracy board with your own two claws. Follow Sonny and Marty, two of the toughest rooster detectives the Wilderness ever did see, as they attempt to crack a complex, world-changing conspiracy. Explore the city of Clawville and meet its denizens by discovering unknown paths, sidequests, and a whole culture of anthropomorphic rules, rituals, and routines.

Gather clues and talk to suspects to decipher the buzz on the street created by the Hive, a walled insectoid slum underlying the city. Take the first steps to unravel an absurd mystery in this playable demo for a limited time only.

BitSummit Drift attending media are invited to visit Booth A-03 to go hands-on with the game and interview Joystick Ventures Product Manager Andrea Alvarez.
