In the market for something a little bit, well, strange? Edgar – Bokbok in Boulzac is that game, as it tells the story of one eccentric guy, Edgar, and his love for a chicken.
Set in the city of Boulzac, Edgar – Bokbok in Boulzac comes about via the team at La Poule Noire, setting us out on a new action adventure like no other. Released today on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC – nope, no PlayStation 4 launch here – Bokbok in Boulzac follows the life of Edgar as he explores the world around him.
Having a laugh with social trends and ensuring that there is always an expressed love of chickens at the fore, Edgar – Bokbok in Boulzac on XO, Switch and PC works its way into your life as a new pointer and clicker; or perhaps that should be point and clucker. Whatever it is though, it’s weird, it’s strange, and it aims to bring a bit of humour into your life as you trek through the land of Boulzac and attempt to get to the bottom of the conspiracy at hand.
Priced at £13.24 from the Xbox Store for Xbox One, Edgar – Bokbok in Boulzac is also launching on Nintendo Switch and PC too, covering a number of different bases and allowing La Poule Noire to get this eccentric adventure into the hands of many.
But should you take a look at it? Well, our full review is right here and available for your perusal, as is a rather lovely little Q&A we held with the Project Manager behind the game. Give it a read and let us know your thoughts on this adventure by posting in the comments.
You are eccentric outcast Edgar, living in the woods with your chicken and beloved squash crops. Unfortunately, a sudden disaster forces you out of your shack and towards the bright lights of the big city, Boulzac, where an 800 year old fire rages beneath the surface, and weird things are afoot. Explore a strange and comic universe, meeting its unhinged (and unforgettable) inhabitants and discovering ancient secrets. Unveil the surreal conspiracy holding Boulzac together. Trek above and below the light city. Enjoy whip-smart dialogue, surreal adventures and satire. Equal parts whimsical and dark: you’ve not met a cosmic horror like this before. It is developed by La Poule Noire, a cooperative that aims, through its productions, to make fun of social trends. In Edgar, conspiracy theory is at the heart of the plot.
