News EARLY ACCESS: Chicken Invaders 5 Christmas Edition 2016-09-19

And now for something a little bit different! As you might already know (or suspect), the Christmas Edition of Chicken Invaders 5 is coming this December. What you definitely don't know, however, is that we have a special treat for all users who have registered Chicken Invaders 5 : if you've purchased the Chicken Invaders 5 pack directly from this website, then you can simply use your given authorization code to log in and download the Christmas Edition right now!

News "Lost progress" bug in recent Android updates to Chicken Invaders 3 & 4 2016-07-08

There is a bug in the Chicken Invaders 3 (v1.19) and Chicken Invaders 4 (v1.15) updates for Android we released last week which will prevent your progress from being upgraded correctly (that is, your progress will be reset to zero). We have now released updates to correct this issue.

The new updates are Chicken Invaders 3 v1.20 and Chicken Invaders 4 v1.16. You can check which version you have by selecting Options -> Credits at the game's main menu.

Please allow a few hours for these updates to propagate around the world and then make sure you apply them as soon as possible, because any progress you make with the old v1.19 and v1.15 will be ignored.

This issue only affects Android. Windows, Mac, Linux are unaffected.

 

News Sweeping update for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android 2016-06-23

We have recently released a sweeping update to all of our games on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android. The most important visible differences are the option to switch between classic (chiptune) and remastered (orchestral) music for Chicken Invaders 2, spaceship colorization in multiplayer games for Chicken Invaders 4, and the addition of Dutch and Portuguese translations for Chicken Invaders 5. The update breaks network compatibility for Chicken Invaders 3 & 4, so you'll need it to play multiplayer games. There is additionally a multitude of small technical fixes that nobody will ever care about so we won't even mention them!

 

News Chicken Invaders 2 on Steam 2016-03-04

The Christmas Edition will become available as DLC next week.

News Chicken Invaders 1 slowness issue under Windows 8+ 2015-12-10

As you might already know, Chicken Invaders 1 (and Island Wars 1) run very slowly under Windows 8, 8.1 and 10. This is because starting with Windows 8, the DirectDraw portion of DirectX 7.0 is software emulated, meaning that it's very slow. This is a limitation of Windows and there's nothing that the game itself can do to fix it.

Nevertheless, Zerosan has reported to us that you can use the dgVoodoo2 DirectX wrapper to make the game work correctly under Windows 8+, so you might want to give it a shot. Note that InterAction studios is not affiliated with the maker of dgVoodoo2 and no technical support can be provided. Your mileage may vary.

This is not a bug within the games themselves, it's a Windows 10 problem.

News Chicken Invaders: Ultimate Omelette v4.15 update 2012-06-17

We've just made the v4.15 update to Chicken Invaders: Ultimate Omelette available. It's a sweeping update for all platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux), all editions (Standard, Christmas, Easter) and for both versions (demo, registered).

The main addition in this update is touch screen support: the game will automatically switch to touchscreen control if a supported screen is detected (Windows only). Plus, you can play network games between clients using keyboards, mice, joysticks, or touch screens. In order to make this happen, however, we've had to break backwards network compatibility, so you'll need this update if you plan on hosting or joining internet multiplayer games.

This update also adds support for Polish and Romanian languages.

News Chicken Invaders: The Next Wave Remastered Edition 2011-12-20

The remastered edition of Chicken Invaders: The Next Wave is now available. This is the single most important update to Chicken Invaders: The Next Wave since... well, since it first came out. "What's new", we hear you say?

Remastered media: All graphics have been re-rendered at twice the old resolution. That's 4 times more pixels – more than even Chicken Invaders: Ultimate Omelette! New orchestral music has been composed specifically for this edition, and we've increased the frame rate by 20% for even smoother animation!

Automatic weapon fire: No need to fire each shot individually any more! Just hold down the fire button and watch those feathers fly! Advanced players can (and should) still use manual firing, which has the potential to be a lot faster.

Progress saving: Your progress is now saved, so you can leave the game at any point and resume playing later! Also, after losing the game, you are given the option of starting the game at the last visited planet instead of going all the way back to the beginning. Those chickens don't stand a chance now!

Enhancements: The game has been also retrofitted with all the little improvements from our latest releases, regarding widescreen support, language handling, loading optimizations and menu system additions.

The remastered Christmas Edition is available right now, while the remastered Standard Edition is coming in a few days. All remastered editions come completely free with any existing Chicken Invaders: The Next Wave registration, so log in your account and download it now!

 

News Revenge of the Yolk available for the iPhone/iPad 2011-12-19

The Christmas Edition of Chicken Invaders: Revenge of the Yolk has been added to our iPhone, iPod, and iPad games! The Standard Edition will follow in a few weeks. Don't forget to keep up to date with our ever-growing list of iPhone and iPad games here.

 

News Revenge of the Yolk v3.76 update! 2011-12-18

As soon as the chickens in the office heard about the updates to the other games, they staged a coop coup and demanded that we update Chicken Invaders too. We tried to resist but they threatened a complete egg embargo, so we had to give in to their demands around breakfast time.

So, today's update is for Chicken Invaders: Revenge of the Yolk. Apart from the usual minor enhancements (widescreen support, better language handling), it also includes a couple of substantial changes. Firstly, we've added (partial) Polish support. Secondly (and more importantly), there's a gameplay change: after you lose the game and you resume your mission from the last visited star system, your weapon power is now restored to the level it had when you started that planet. This change is only really relevant if you plan to do a lot of dying, but it's there nonetheless.

This is a sweeping update which affects demo/registered, Win/Mac/Linux, Standard/Xmas/Easter editions of the game. And, it's free.

 

News Ultimate Omelette Xmas score/career uploads fixed 2011-12-17

News Loco v1.41 update! 2011-12-17

Loco couldn't very well be left out of the updates, could it now? It's also been refreshed with the latest Chicken Invaders 4 changes (which include widescreen support and much faster loading), but it also fixes a very important, erm, (masterfully sidestepping the 'b..' word here) issue where newer highscores would overwrite rather than be properly inserted into the high score table. Oops!

This update is naturally free and it applies to demo, registered, Windows, and Mac flavours. However, note that your scores and progress will not be migrated from a previous version, so if you're in the middle of a train ride to Fruitopolis (or the North Pole), better finish your game first and then upgrade.

 

News Island Wars 2 v2.74 update! 2011-12-16

Hot on the heels of yesterday's update, it's now Island Wars 2's turn to get a much needed face-lift. As far as appearances go, the game now runs at a higher resolution and supports widescreen monitors. But there's also substance underneath the polish. The game can now save your progress in all game modes, so you can leave your game and come back to it without restarting from scratch! The game has been also fully retrofitted with the latest Chicken Invaders 4 improvements, and loads pretty much instantly!

This update applies equally to demo, registered, Windows, and Mac versions, and is (as always) completely free!

 

News Piggly v1.22 update! 2011-12-15

Let's kick off the updates with a release for Piggly. This is a major update and equally affects demo, registered, Windows, and Mac versions.

Where do we start? The most important change is that we've used extensive player feedback to radically redesign and simplify the control scheme. The good news is that you now need one less key to play the game: a single key is now assigned to picking up, dropping, and activating objects (depending on the context). The default key layout has also been changed to avoid tying your fingers in a knot (at least those of you who haven't spent your childhoods mastering the lost art of controlling three arrow keys with the same hand).

But that's not all. There's also a slew of minor touch-ups and improvements, including widescreen resolution support, simplified Spring levels, improved Christmas Edition (with more Christmas spirit!), little technical fixes (mouse, OpenGL) and even faster loading!

There's a slight catch, however. The old (more complex) control scheme is no longer available, so if you're emotionally attached to it, you're better off not upgrading (your high scores will still be accepted using the old version). The rest of you, go, go, go!

The changes are not just cosmetic, however. We've also added our newsletter (a brand new feature!) and links to Facebook/Twitter for Chicken Invaders. Also, in the time leading up to Christmas, virtually every single game on this site will be updated, starting with... but let's not spoil the surprise now, shall we?
