Following up on the announcement and gameplay reveal for Chicken Police - Into the HIVE! the Hungary-based studio The Wild Gentlemen is ready to introduce us to The World of Wilderness, a complete world full of rich stories, unique characters, and endless mysteries.

Zipp’s Cafe is a cozy cafe management adventure that anyone can enjoy. It also happens that it's a prelude to the events happening during Chicken Police - Into the HIVE!, and may be a tease to some other secrets that The World of Wilderness has in store… 

Wishlist the game now on Steam:

Zipp H. Murphy is one raccoon that does not eat trash - on the contrary, his palette is one of excellent taste, and it shows since he is the owner, chef, and manager of Zipp’s Cafe, the most popular joint in Clawville. The cafe offers an oasis of peace in the midst of the chaos that is Clawville. It doesn’t matter if you are a cop, a criminal, or as is usually the case in Clawville, both; Zipp will always have a hot cup of coffee and a delicious plate of food waiting for you… as long as you have the money to pay for it. Zipp’s Café is the place to find Love, Betrayal, and of course, Coffee.

The Wild Gentlemen have cooked up a cozy cafe management sim; wash the dishes, prepare the perfect espresso, and serve the most delicious omelets, but be careful not to break too many eggs! Zipp is not only a great cook but also has the gift of the silver tongue; clients from all parts of the Clawville underworld come to share their stories with this old Racoon, revealing hidden secrets about both Clawville and The World of Wilderness at large.

Some of the regulars include Mick, a crime boss who has recently risen to power, and Frank, a private detective and good friend of Marty and Sonny. Uncover their stories and see them intertwine with the events of Chicken Police - Into the HIVE! and yes, with some other unannounced projects too. You will also uncover Zipp’s mysterious past - and maybe even find love? The World of Wilderness is full of surprises for all its inhabitants.

Zipp’s Cafe includes three full minigames (cooking, coffee making, and dishwashing) and has a cast of six characters: Zipp and five cafe regulars, who are eager to share their stories with anyone who offers a friendly ear and a warm enough cup of coffee in the cold town of Clawville.

You don’t need to be a cunning Fox or a feathered detective to suspect that the World of Wilderness will expand beyond Chicken Police - Into the HIVE! and Zipp´s Cafe, so get your detective gear on… because there’s much more to come.

The game is expected to launch on PC on: November 15, 2023.
