Beat Cop, the new game published by 11 bit Studios and developed by Pixel Crow is out now, and I am SO excited. It is sweet nostalgia for me in that the game reminds me greatly of one of my childhood favorites – Police Quest by Sierra. Granted, I still haven’t played it, but will be investing first thing tomorrow morning – my ten-year-old self is begging me for it.
Don’t worry, the game launches today, and you’ll be able to check it out in all its glory on Steam.
A better description from the official Beat Cop website is below:
New York, more like a beast than a city.
Explore its 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.
I mean COME ON. Who doesn’t want to play that? I’m definitely down.
Beat Cop is 10% off today, so make sure you pick it up!
Oh, and check out the trailer on YouTube. It’s pretty rad.
