Edgar: Bokbok in Boulzac is the surreal “point-and-cluck” adventure of one man, one chicken, and one ancient terror.
This weird little game follows Edgar, a 40-something eccentric outcast, on his quest to save his pet chicken and his favorite squash.
According to the official announcement, it’s a quest “full of bad jokes and loads of french countryside.” So if you love France and hate humor (i.e. a French person), you will undoubtedly love Edgar: Bokbok in Boulzac.
But in all seriousness, Bokbok in Boulzac looks like an enjoyable romp through a colorful (and twisted) world. Most of the game takes place in the small city of Boulzac, inspired by the towns of the french countryside. You’ll meet its cliché and unhinged residents and stumble upon ancient secrets and a dark conspiracy.
The game also has a sinister streak. An 800-year-old fire rages beneath the surface of Boulzac, and the game description hints at cosmic horrors mixed into the otherwise comical narrative.
So are you a chicken, or are you a man (or are you both)? It seems that in Bokbok in Boulzac, it doesn’t really matter.
Edgar: Bokbok in Boulzac, the debut game of French developers La Poule Noire, will hatch on PC, Xbox One and Switch on February 26.Some of our posts include links to online retail stores.
