80’s Cop Show Inspired Adventure Game Beat Cop Gets New Overview Video

Earlier this month, Poland-based developer Pixel Crow and publisher 11 bit studios announced that their 80’s cop show inspired, retro, pixel art style adventure game set in Brooklyn, Beat Cop, is set to launch for PC, Mac, and Linux on March 30, 2017. Today, the pair released a new overview video that provides 11 salient facts about the game.

The video, which is two minutes and 20 seconds long, specifically dives into the game’s genre, style, humor, story, mystery, time management, choices, daily duties, different factions, multiple endings, and release details. Here’s an overview of the game, courtesy of its Steam page:

New York, more like a beast than a city. Explore it’s darkest corners and uncover its secrets as Jack Kelly, a former detective who has been framed for a murder. Degraded and forgotten by old pals, it’s your last chance to find the truth behind this whole terrible mess. The thing is, your new boss treats you like shit, your wife is a money sucking spawn from hell and the local mafia wants your head on a plate. I guess you could say, that things are complicated down here, in the middle of Brooklyn. Oh, and don’t forget about writing tickets, reprimanding pedestrians & such. You’re a beat cop after all.

Nonlinear story with multiple endings
Someone framed you and no one gives a rat’s ass about this but you. Turn every stone in this city and find out who did that. The further you investigate the more missing puzzles you’ll find, but be careful. Some things should never be brought to daylight.

The essence of 80’s cop shows
Have you ever dreamed of being one of the heroes of cop movies? Of course you did, like we all. Now you have a chance. Be sexier than Sonny Crocket and tougher than Dirty Harry. And if witty comebacks won’t work, you can always do some old school ass kicking. It’s 80’s after all!

The humour that your mom wouldn’t approve
Be sarcastic. Be gloom. Be whatever you want. There are thousands of things in this world you can laugh at, and even more you shouldn’t, but who cares. It’s jungle out there baby, and sometimes you just need something to release the stress.

Beat Cop will cost $14.99 USD when it launches — below, you can check out the new video:
