Indie developer Weappy Studios has partnered up with lead Indie Label Team 17 to bring This is the Police on PC and other platforms. The digital title is a strategy/adventure game about power and corruption, duty and choice. It stars an honorable cop who turns to a life of crime six months before his retirement. Despite playing things by the book for most his career, Police Chief Jack Boyd (Jon St. John, the voice of Duke Nukem) grew tired of watching others profit off of him and has decided to get in on the action.
“Setting himself a target of making half a million in his last 180 days on the job, Jack’s ready to get his hands dirty in a whole new way!”
This is the Police is currently on kickstarter with eight days left to reach its pledge goal of $25,000.
“We hope our Kickstarter backers will join us in celebrating our new partnership with Team17. Thanks to Team17’s Indie Label we can focus on developing the game that stays true to both our and our backer’s vision of the project; whilst knowing that the marketing, PR and community interaction will be handled with the same love and attention. Having seen what Team17 have already done for previous crowdfunded titles like The Escapists, Beyond Eyes and Sheltered they were an obvious partner,” said Ilya Yanovich, Co-Founder at Weappy Studio.
Team17’s Managing Director Debbie Bestwick added, “As soon as I saw This is the Police on Kickstarter, I was a fan. It’s a fantastic looking game and the team at Weappy are obviously very talented. It’s a pleasure to welcome them to our growing Indie Label and we’re excited to help them realize their vision.”
Weappy Studios has refused any additional development funding from Team 17. If you would like for this title to see the light of day, you can back it on kickstarter. Team 17 will handled PR, Marketing, community engagement and any additional non-development cost.
Reaching their stretch goal of $30,000 will see the release of Mac and Linux versions of the game. While $55,000 will see it come to Wii U and PS Vita.
