Hector: Badge of Carnage Episode 2 coming this fall

If you weren't too disgusted by the exploits of Detective Hector in his first adventure game outing, We Negotiate With Terrorists, you'll be pleased to learn that he'll make his grand, slovenly return this fall. Straandlooper Animation has announced that part two of the unapologetically nasty series, Hector: Badge of Carnage - Senseless Acts of Justice, is now scheduled for an autumnal release on the iPhone, iPad, PC and Mac. Better yet, the untitled third chapter will launch even later in the fall.

We think this is a perfect release window for the franchise's sophomore installment. Just as the leaves are changing, and the punishing heat of the summer is replaced with the crisp, still air of fall, a cranky police officer will make a joke about gonorrhea on your cell phone. Lovely.

Developer Straandlooper Animation announces work on 'Senseless Acts of Justice' is finished

Game scheduled for worldwide Autumn release

London 2nd August 2011 : Straandlooper Animation today announced the completion of the eagerly awaited follow up to critically acclaimed point and click comedy adventure game 'Hector: Badge of Carnage Episode 1 - We Negotiate with Terrorists'.

'Hector: Badge of Carnage Episode 2 - Senseless Acts of Justice' has gone gold and will be released worldwide on iphone, ipad, PC & Mac by Telltale Games this Autumn.

A poor advertisement for law enforcement, and also known as the 'Fast Arse of the Law', Detective Inspector Hector is a flawed anti-hero with a taste for sleaze, corruption and lashings of curry sauce.

'Hector: Badge of Carnage Episode 2 - Senseless Acts of Justice' sees our anti-hero hunting a psychopath and pulled down a twisted trail of meat, sin, sleaze, and more meat. The new game promises to be even more crude and distasteful than the first in the series. The adventure introduces gamers to a whole host of new environments and colourful characters from the world of Clappers Wreake - the crime-ridden town in the armpit of Great Britain.

"Hector: Badge of Carnage Episode 1 - We Negotiate with Terrorists' saw Inspector Hector forced to carry out a terrorist's demands which involved porn shops, fake drugs and donating to charity. We have made every effort to ensure Hector sinks even deeper into a pit of inappropriateness as the series unfolds" says joint MD of Straandlooper Animation, Richard Morss. "Episode 2 sees Hector really coming into his own as he plumbs new depths in depravity, degradation and political incorrectness."

'Hector: Badge of Carnage Episode 2 - Senseless Acts of Justice' features almost twice the gameplay as the original game as Straandlooper have attempted to create the funniest, crudest and most distasteful point & click adventure game ever. Six screenshots have been released, highlighting Straandlooper's captivating animation style.

Northern Ireland based Straandlooper are also putting the finishing touches to the third episode in the Hector trilogy - scheduled for release later in the Autumn.
