WILD Tactics, Turn-Based Strategy Game Set in Chicken Police Universe, Revealed at Guerilla Collective

BUDAPEST, Hungary – June 6, 2024 – Developer The Wild Gentlemen and publisher Joystick Ventures today revealed WILD Tactics, the turn-based strategy game set in the World of Wilderness popularized by Chicken Police. Watch the animated debut trailer from Guerilla Collective below.

Inspired by genre classics like XCOM, an unlikely squad of former soldiers, police, and criminals must come together to save the Wilderness, the city introduced in Chicken Police: Paint it RED!. Though they may come from different backgrounds and species, they must build up their base and recruit allies to their squad to restore order to their home.

Engage in missions that run the gamut from covert operations to all-out assaults on enemy forces. Utilize the environment to find effective hiding spots, and gain the high ground on foes, striving for every advantage. Use each hero’s skills to gain the upper hand in battle, and discover the backstory that led these anthropomorphic fighters here.

“The reception to the original Chicken Police and its distinctive characters led us to think about how we could explore this world further, ” said Bánk Varga, Co-Founder at The Wild Gentleman. “We’re aiming to combine a fresh playstyle in the world with tactics-driven gameplay, with the strong narrative hooks and character moments that compelled people.”

“Working with The Wild Gentlemen on Chicken Police: Into the HIVE! has been a wonderful experience, and when they came to us with WILD Tactics, it was a must for us to add to our portfolio,” said Andrea Alvarez, Product Manager, Joystick Ventures. “The World of Wilderness is full of surprises, and we can’t wait for the world to explore this new chapter for themselves.”

WILD Tactics is in development for Steam for PC with further platforms to be announced at a later date. For more information, visit The Wild Gentlemen’s official website, and follow them on Twitter/X. Visit Joystick Ventures’ official website and follow them on Twitter/X.
