Spikes, saws, and other odd things to see at a farm await the poor chicken protagonist of Chicku, a new platformer on Steam Early Access. There’s no real safety in numbers when you’re faced with leaping around this deadly equipment, but you can bring a few friends for the journey in the game’s local multiplayer. And you can all fly…about as well as a chicken can.
When you get sick of watching each other die from traps, you can also turn on each other in one of several deathmatch modes, using a bizarre array of poultry weaponry to splatter each other’s gizzards around the map. Do well, at this and the main game, and you can even unlock hats! Hats make everything better, don’t they? A chicken in a pirate hat getting sucked into a circular saw is much cuter than one without.
