Keep watching the official ratloop Twitter (@ratloop) for more details as to when this big announcement will be unveiled.
In Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken for PS Vita, players will take control of Hardboiled Chicken, the original Coq of War (a chicken so tough, he survived being boiled as a fetus), to lead the rebellion against the draconian penguin oppressors to overthrow their hold on Albatropolis! It’s an old-school cinematic action-adventure set in the Rocketbirds universe, a world filled with some despicable and often violent birds. The game sports jetpacking sections, stab-action in the Hardboiled difficulty setting, mind controlling brainbugs, some pretty nifty PS Vita controls, sweet music videos and an Ad-Hoc / Online cooperative mode with its own separate campaign!
The single player campaign in Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken takes players through 15 chapters of Penguin destruction. For the PS Vita version, Ratloop has wired the screens to the built-in motion sensors, so players can tilt the detailed, non-scrolling screens at will.
