Update:The update is now online! And the price has been dropped to $0.99. Enjoy!

The first update to Chickens Can’t Fly is pushing slowly through certification has passed all verifications, and will arrive on the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace soon. While you wait for it a bit longer, here’s the list of features and goodies we managed to put in the game:

Aquarium

New Laboratory: Aquarium

Dive deep underwater in this new laboratory, filled with new obstacles and power-ups. Over the course of 14 new experiments, you’ll have the chance to meet jellyfish, catch squids, get into the Batysphere or use the ‘Finger of Death’.



Avatar Awards

Avatar Awards

Finally, after all the waiting, you can now unlock Avatar Awards for your Xbox LIVE avatar.

  • Get the Chicken Helmet by obtaining the Gold medal in 15 experiments. If you already have 15 gold medals, this will unlock when you first start the game.
  • Get the Chicken Slippers by winning an Xbox LIVE Challenge against a friend.

Skins

Want to spice things up a bit? You can now change how you Chicken looks with the new Chicksie and Diver skins. More skins, such as Vampire, Alien and Knight are available as DLC

Xbox LIVE Multiplayer Challenges

Do you want to see how you stack up against you friends? You can now challenge them to a game of Chickens Can’t Fly.

  • Play in one of the three challenge types (Survival Challenge, Icecube Challenge and Time Attack Challenge)
  • See the ‘ghost’ of the challenger
  • Win challenges to rise in the Xbox LIVE Challenges Leaderboards

DLC: Dono Mini-Lab and Skin

Unlock a new mini-laboratory, themed around ninjas! Play 10 new experiments and discover new obstacles and power-ups. You will also get the Ninja skin for the Chicken.

Sadly, because of Xbox LIVE restrictions, we were unable to add extra Achievements for this DLC.



Other tweaks

  • Added rewards for finishing levels with more lives 10% bonus score for each life remaining at the end
  • Per popular request, we added a new ringtone with the main theme song
  • Re-balanced some difficult levels, and made them easier
  • Reduced the requirements for Gold medals in some levels that were almost impossible to get (thanks Paul for the great suggestions on these)
  • Fixed performance/framerate issues in some Butchery and Physics levels
  • Made the ‘Hungry, hungry Chicken!’ achievement easier to get by humans
  • Music doesn’t loop anymore between re-starts of the same level, so even if you die quickly, you’ll get to hear all of it
  • Corrected translations (Thanks Mark, Luc, Vicente, Fabio)
  • Streamlined the Trial and added a few ‘demo’ experiments from later laboratories
  • Squashed a few little bugs

      Just got word that it should be out Tuesday, June 26

    So the above notes state you’ve made the Hungry Chicken achievement easier to obtain. I just loaded the update, and see zero difference. Can you guys elaborate?

    I installed the update and I cannot access the new aquarium levels. It tells me that I need to complete more experiments to unlock them however I have already completed all of the previous experiments. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

  3. ChrisD0811

    I also have the above problem. Didn’t even realize it until I read his post. This is frustrating guys =]

  4. AmusedSloth

    Shit. We’re investigating right now.
    Will come back with an answer as soon as possible.

  5. ChrisD0811

    Sweet. The new levels and additions look amazing, so I’m waiting with bated breath. And any news on that million corn achievement would be incredibly useful and welcome as well. Thanks for continuing to support the title!

    I’m having a hard time unlocking this achievement called Chicken is stronger than a cat. I had over 9 lives five times, but never unlocked.

    • AmusedSloth

      Hi John.
      The Chickens is Stronger than a Cat achievement needs to be unlocked in a Survival Game, not in a Challenge of the Week.
      This is because a CotW level can sometimes be very very easy (like last week), and it wouldn’t be fair.
