Description

Plunge towards the depths of a chicken-powered science facility! Chickens Can’t Fly is here to give you endless free-falling excitement in a wacky world. Join us in a game filled with deadly obstacles and corn! Happy falling!

History

The game that became Chickens Can't Fly started out as a deep well exploration game with a space explorer as the main character. After the first playable version was built, we quickly changed the theme to a chicken being experimented on, and the game breathed a new life filled with humour and wacky science. An initial version was released on Windows Phone under the name Chickens Can Dream to see how people like it. Following up on the great receptions, we approached Microsoft to publish Chickens Can't Fly as an Xbox LIVE game on Windows Phone. After a few more months and some serious feature creep, we finally managed to release the game on Windows Phone in February 15, 2012. Encouraged by the nice reviews and receptions, we started working on the iOS and Android ports, which were finished and released in October 2013. Sadly, at the same time, Microsoft pulled the game from Xbox LIVE on Windows Phone thanks to some issues with their In App Purchases framework, so we re-released the game on Windows Phone as an independent publisher.
