To celebrate a new publishing deal with EuroVideo Games, developer Weappy LLC have released a dark new story trailer for the incoming cop story, This is the Police.
This new trailer explains some of the story behind Police Chief Jack Boyd. Jack’s been handed his notice after decades running the Force. He’s put himself in danger, did his duty and stayed an honest cop. How has he been treated? He’s been handed a letter from the City Mayor – “Thank you. You are fired. Please leave in 180 days“. Charming.
How will Jack Boyd respond? The only way he knows how. “To hell with it!“.
Take control of Police Chief Jack Boyd then, as he spends his last 180 days on Freeburg City’s Force. Your aim is clear. $50,000 needs to be in Jack’s bank account before he leaves office. It is totally up to you how this happens. By fair means or foul, fill your coffers with the fruits of your labour.
You’ll get the opportunity to co-operate with the Mafia, take bribes, sell confiscated weapons and more in order to get the greenbacks rolling in. Be careful though. You will have to find a way to balance your daily policing duties and making this money, all without getting into trouble. The important thing to remember is not to indict yourself. That would be just silly.
This is the Police will be playable for those of you lucky enough to be heading to PAX East from the 22nd – 24th of April
The game looks to be in the same style as the Amiga classic, Flashback. This is a method called Rotoscope and takes live action footage and crafts the animation around this. It might not be Rotoscope, though, it may just be in the style of.
This is the Police will head to PC first this summer with the Xbox One release following shortly after this.
Have a look at the trailer below. Recognise Chief Jack’s voice? It’s none other than Duke Nukem. The brilliant Jon St.John. You’re welcome.
