This Is the Police
In This Is the Police you play a police chief who is forced into retirement by a corrupt mayor. In the 180 days you have left in the job you have to make enough money to retire on – and not necessarily by doing what’s legal.
During the game you have make snap decisions regarding how your officers respond to crimes as well as dealing with being the face of Freeburg’s police force, by attending press conferences and the like.
It’s up to you to decide which officers to hire and fire and how to handle the different factions within the city that are vying for power, from the trade unions to the church to city hall. And remember to balance your books, both your legitimate accounts and your ill-gotten gains.
If you finish the game entering retirement broke don’t worry, at least you’re not in prison. Or in the mortuary.
This Is the Police was successfully funded on Kickstarter in February 2015, with developers Weappy releasing it on 28th July 2016. They raised over $35,000.
