Ratloop Asia, a US based Independent game studio, and Reverb Publishing have today revealed that Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, the gun-blazing, 2D platform action gem that was released a year ago on the PlayStation Network, will be coming home to roost on PC on Wednesday, October 15th.

“October has always been a great month for gaming, and what better way to start it off than with a hilariously unique side-scrolling action shooter featuring fantastic and addictive gameplay,” said Ted Lange, executive producer with Reverb Publishing. “There’s something deeply satisfying about unloading clip after clip into a hapless horde of evil birds, and it’s only made better with a friend on co-op.”

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken takes place in Albatropolis, a land full of birds, and the player controls Hardboiled Chicken, an original Coq of War, who must assassinate the evil penguin dictator Putzk and set free Albatropolis. His mission will unlock the secrets to his mysterious, hard boiled past and uncover the real enemies of Albatropolis.

Rocketbirds will be available on Steam, GamersGate, Rain Digital Games and GameStop – gamers can preorder now from GamersGate, Rain Digital Games, and GameStop to receive four songs from the original soundtrack as well as an extra co-op character (Agent H.) and weapon (Photon Blaster).
