Chase the Chicken

Essence:

"Get That Chicken!" The three words that describe it best. Take control of Chase, the paranoid and absurd chicken, who's on a quest of self discovery. Scratch that, he's just trying to survive after escaping a restaurant kitchen in a South American town. As Chase, players take to the streets, trying to stay one step ahead of the terrible and tireless Chef who's hot on their trail. Also joining in on the chase are everyday citizens who will drop whatever they're doing to run players down. They're all after Chase, in this fast-paced 3D Action-Arcade "Chaser" where the danger is never far away.

Overview:

Chase the Chicken is like a simplified cartoon version (and much less controversial) of the chase sequences in action games like Driver (Reflections Interactive, 1999) or Grand Theft Auto (Rockstar, Franchise). Players play as Chase, a ridiculous, egg-laying, male chicken, running through a small town, avoiding not only the natural hazards but also the inhabitants. As the player runs by citizens in the game, those characters will turn and join in on the pursuit of Chase.

The overall goal for the player is to continuously evade the relentless hunt and survive to a bi-plane on an airstrip at the south end of town. Chase the Chicken is aimed at a younger audience but the fun-loving atmosphere of the game attracts an older group as well.

Features:

  • Silly "Rag-Doll" Physics System: As Chase's pursuers run after him, they are likely to slip on eggs that he lays. When they do, their bodies will react accordingly thanks to Unreal Tournament's Karma Physics system.
  • Fast-Paced Action: A detailed and interesting world offers constant obstacles for the player to overcome as he/she races through the environment away from the mob of people chasing after them. Every corner brings another level of challenge.
  • Humourous Content: The subject matter is essentially "Poultry on the Run", the rest of the game follows suite and is equally ridiculous. Senseless, but good natured, fun is the goal.
  • New IP Franchise: Chase, as a character is a quality new IP and the gameplay translates well over all current and next generation gaming platforms. It's not a stretch to say that there's a lot of marketability in this title or spin-off titles

Mod Goals:

Chase the Chicken is made to be a prototype/demo of a full game, showing off core gameplay and an exciting new IP. As such, we're only featuring a single level at this point, although there's certainly room and plenty of ideas for more. Additionally, by focusing on one level, we can refine it to a stage of completion that we are satisfied with.

Team Speed-Force Alpha is also hoping to enter Chase the Chicken in the Mod Category of the Independent Games Festival in March 2007. We hope that our interesting characters, unusual game-style & idea, and overall product will take us far. Wish us luck!

Vancouver, BC - May 29, 2006 ? Let the Chase begin! Chase the Chicken, the wacky Unreal Tournament 2004 modification, is now out for your playing pleasure. Team Speed-Force Alpha would like to thank everyone that showed their interest in our offbeat mod and waited through our delays.

Players assume the role of a wily chicken named Chase who's recently escaped from the kitchen of a maniacal Chef! After a brief moment of freedom, the Chef and all manner of townsfolk are on to Chase's trail of tail-feathers - giving Chase the run of his life. His only chance is to find a bi-plane at the other end of town during a South American poultry festival! Are you chicken enough?

After you've downloaded and played our mod, we encourage you to contact us in any way and let us know what you think! Your feedback, good or bad (but we hope good), is the only reward that we get for embarking on this one-way ticket to crazytown (read: for making the mod).

Look for our upcoming developer Post Mortem on the gaming industry website Gamasutra (http://www.gamasutra.com).

Head to our ModDB Downloads page to grab the game!
