Play As A Crooked Police Chief In 'This Is The Police'

Weappy Games, an independent studio from Belarus, is working on its first title, This Is The Police. Today, the studio announced that the strategic adventure game would come out at the end of the month, and it included a new trailer to go with the news.

This Is The Police puts you in the shoes of Jack Boyd, the police chief of Freeburg city, who has six months left until his retirement. In that time, you’ll need to earn $500,000 in order to have a financial cushion at the end of your career. However, the job of Chief of Police isn’t enough to reach that goal, so you’ll have to deal with some of the city’s notorious criminals to get more money. This reality means taking a cut of a criminal organization’s earnings for yourself or selling back a pile of seized drugs to the Mafia.

Even with the new flow of money to your bank account, you still have a job to do. As police chief, you’ll help solve crimes, negotiate your way through hostage situations, and assign your officers to the many emergencies that spring up throughout Freeburg. With a city as corrupt and dangerous as Freeburg, there’s no shortage of problems, so you’ll have to juggle your work and your criminal activities.

Every decision you make will affect the game’s 25-hour storyline, such as whether you choose to stay on the righteous path or work with Freeburg’s criminals. In the end, This Is The Police is a dark tale that shows the lengths that you’ll go to in order to get more money before retirement day. When the game comes out on July 28, it will be available on Windows, Mac and Linux. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game will come out later this year.

    Just out of interest is this a paid advertisement?
    I'm not being critical but you guys do so few games announcements and this seems a small title to be shown on this site.
    Or is it just a friend of yours that your helping to give exposure to?
    I'm all for a shoutout to help a mate.

    Neither. I saw the trailer today and decided to check it out. It looks like an interesting title for an indie game.

    They should make a game where you play as secretary of state and have to use a combination of bribery, extortion, and death threats to evade prosecution for your many scandals.

    Looks like a game the liberal media would advertise.

    Yeah, that would just like reality, in that they're both works of fiction and/or lies. Some people just can't a woman in charge, it seems. Small hands perhaps?

    Nutjob2 - your name is fitting. You want someone in charge that will put the country at risk so nonchalantly? Rhetorical question - I don't care what your answer is.
