Beat Cop Out Today on PC, Mac, and Linux; Launch Trailer Released
Today, developer Pixel Crow and publisher 11 bit studios’ pixel art style adventure game inspired by 80’s cop shows, Beat Cop, is out on PC, Mac, and Linux, accompanied by a new launch trailer.
First time hearing about Beat Cop? No problem — 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 is available for $14.99 USD. Below, you can check out the launch trailer (personally I skipped the launch trailer and went straight for the download..I’m really looking forward to this one):
