CIU version 128


Anti-Cheat. There are hardly any player-facing changes in this update. Instead, ‘proper’ development has been suspended – I’ve instead spent the last two weeks improving the anti-cheating measures in the game. It was sadly not productive work, but it was (equally sadly) necessary in order to stop certain cheaters from ruining the competitive aspect of the game for everyone.

:warning: The anti-cheat system is now a lot stricter. You will be banned if you cheat. You will be banned if you use cheating tools (whether you actually cheat or not). You will be banned if you think about cheating. You will be banned if you allow yourself to consider thinking about cheating. You will be banned if your brother cheats, if your best friend cheats, if your cat cheats, if your next-door neighbour cheats, if your 3rd grade classmate who moved across the country and you lost touch and you’re now wondering where he is and how he’s doing cheats. (*)

The new policy (which recently came info force) is stated here: ⚠ Exploit & cheating policy .

* Some of these may not actually be true.

Soundtrack. The Chicken Invaders Soundtrack is almost ready. There is already a “coming soon” Steam page here: Chicken Invaders Soundtrack on Steam . It should be released on or shortly after February 16th.

Bug/Idea medals will be awarded later in the day. Note that your medal cannot be awarded if your in-game callsign doesn’t match your forum name (put it in your forum profile where it says “name” so I can find it).


You will lose:

  • any mid-mission progress
  • your language selection

1st time here

2nd time here

lmao what


I wonder why my cat can cheat huh? :thinking:

You get the hammer and you get the hammer and they get the hammer in fact your whole family gets one including your dog. Now don’t again

Did you know that meaning?

You cheated not only the game, but yourself. You didn’t grow. You didn’t improve. You took a shortcut and gained nothing. You experienced a hollow victory. Nothing was risked and nothing was gained. It’s sad that you don’t know the difference.


No, no, no, NO, NO, NO!


what the hell

Shouldn’t it be CotDS, instead of COTDS

prepare to be hit

I don’t know if I have a lag or a bug, but in one of my missions, food flew right through me and flew right through the walls.

Where is it anyway?

It’s an easter egg, so you need to find it yourself.

Change your device’s date to February 14th or wait till it’s Valentine’s Day and you’ll see

I wonder if Klaus could throw heart-shaped potions on Valentine’s Day? :thinking:

no more easter egg ://

Funny enough after this update my uncle account “AndreI” got “banned”.

He never used any exploits or cheating, when he downloaded the version 128 this came up, sudden ban on e-mail account with no explanation whatsoever. Could be this some type of error or the anti-cheat system didnt like something on his laptop??
