It is Taking All of My Willpower Not to Make a Penis Joke for Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken

on August 31, 2011 7:00 PM

Indie dev Ratloop Asia has made crude, punny games journalists the world over wet their pants with the announcement of their new PSN-exclusive title, Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken. It’s apparently a “hardcore” 2D shooter based in a semi-noir-esque world filled with anthropomorphic avian creatures declaring gang war on each other.

You’re the Hardboiled Chicken, whom Ratloop Asia has deemed, and I quote, as “the original Coq of War” (tee hee), and you have to assassinate the evil penguin regime dictator Putzki. With 15 solo chapters and 10 co-op chapters, this actually looks to be a pretty robust, promising game, if the screenshots are any indication. Hit the jump for a gallery, and get ready for this sucker to hatch when it drops sometime in October.
