Beat Cop is a retro, pixel art style adventure set in New York, inspired by ’80s cop shows.

You are Jack Kelly and you’ve been framed for murder. Now as a regular beat cop you have to find out, who did that. Expect thick crime story, a lot of black humor and all the other things you can find on the streets of Brooklyn.

New York, more like a beast than a city. Explore its darkest corners and uncover its secrets as Jack Kelly, a former detective who has been framed for murder. Demoted and forgotten by old pals, it’s your last chance to find the truth behind this whole terrible mess. The thing is, your new boss treats you horribly, your wife is a money sucking spawn from hell and the local mafia wants your head on a plate. I guess you could say that things are complicated down here, in the middle of Brooklyn. Oh, and don't forget about writing tickets, admonishing jaywalkers & so on.

You're a beat cop after all.

Solve puzzling problems on the roughest of streets, help the local community, deal with dangerous mobsters and gangsters, be the good cop or take the odd bribe on the side, and finally, solve the mystery of a murder you’ve been framed for.

Key Features:

  • NONLINEAR STORY WITH MULTIPLE ENDINGS: Someone framed you and nobody cares about it but you. Turn every stone in this city and find out who did it. The further you investigate, the more missing pieces of the puzzle you’ll find, but be careful. Some things should never be brought to daylight.
  • THE ESSENCE OF '80 COP SHOWS: Have you ever dreamed of being one of the heroes of cop movies? Of course you did, like all of us! Now you have a chance! Stay vigilant, be smart, but remember that if this won’t work, you can always do some old school jaw wrecking. It’s the ’80s after all!
  • THE HUMOR THAT YOUR MOM WOULDN'T APPROVE: Be sarcastic. Be gloomy. Be whatever you want. There are thousands of things in this world you can laugh at, and even more you shouldn't, but who cares. It’s a jungle out there baby, and sometimes you just need something to release the stress.
  • Laying down the law, one ticket at a time

Beat Cop is making the move to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on March 5, 2019, for the average price of a dozen donuts or $14.99 / €14.99.
