Weappy Studio and EuroVideo Medien have released a new trailer for their upcoming strategy adventure game This Is The Police which is set to release this Summer for Linux, Mac and PC. A PS4 and Xbox One version will follow soon after.
After serving as the head of a Police Department for decades, the game’s protagonist, Jack Boyd, receives a simple letter from the City’s mayor, saying “Thank you. You are fired. Please leave in 180 days.” Not someone to take bad news lying down, Jack responds with a simple: “To hell with it!”
As Jack Boyd, players have to decide how they spend his last 180 days as Freeburg City’s retiring Chief of Police. Jack has one clear target: $500,000 needs to be in his account before he leaves the office. It’s up to the player to decide how to achieve this; cooperate with the Mafia? Take bribes? Sell confiscated weapons? Jack will have to find his way between balancing between the daily routine as Chief and making money without getting into trouble.
Those lucky enough to attend PAX East, between April 22-April 24, will have the opportunity to try the game.
After its successful Kickstarter campaign last year, This Is the Police is in its final steps of development, with the feedback of hundreds of backers who took part in the Alpha testing as well as from appearances at consumer shows like EGX Rezzed.
