Don't chicken out ! Rebel against your sacrifice to the Evil Lord.

But you're still a chicken ! Just move, avoid and step on runes to launch dreadful attacks !

How To Play

Chicken Rune 101

Unleash magical attacks from the ground pentagram by stepping on the runes

Different enemies requires different rune sequences following the guide displayed at the bottom right of the screen

Careful ! A rune stepped on in the incorrect order must be deactivated before finishing the rune sequence !


Move with the keyboard arrows or the Xbox controller

2nd player (NEW !) WASD (or ZQSD azerty-style) or the 2nd Xbox controller


Awesome stages ! Through 50 waves and 5 stages

Fearsome enemies ! Cultists, cultists and... bigger cultists

Mindblowing tunes ! Gloomy, speedy, atmospheric, electronic

No weapon ! You've got a beak, but it's kind of weak


The ritual can begin ! Now's the time for our chicken to face his destiny

Fighting the second boss in the second stage, The Nightclub Demon

Things get harder in the Corrupted Forest, with three different enemy types
