About This Game

As seen in Future of Play and Wholesome Games Direct …

Rooster is a beautiful and funny adventure celebrating Chinese culture and community with some of its best attributes - traditional folklore, art, music, and of course, food.

Our game opens with the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac gathering for their annual Lunar New Year’s Eve party. Rooster’s terrible behaviour is finally too much for the animals to bear – especially when he makes Rabbit cry! Fed up, Dragon conjures a potion and sends Rooster back in time to Ancient China to teach him some lessons.

As Rooster, you’ll meet Little Dove, a human whose life milestones provide reasons to help and make up with your Zodiac animal friends, just in time for a clean start and a happy Lunar New Year.

Make wise choices along the journey, or risk being stuck in the past forever!

Rooster is made possible with the support of the Canada Media Fund and Ontario Creates.

Huge variety of gameplay with hidden object levels, puzzles, a dating sim, cooking, logic, dialogue choices, paper crafting, garden design, tower defence and the ultimate boss level combination

Complete 12 levels – one for each Chinese Zodiac animal

Level 1 - Rat

In this hidden object level, make an apology basket for Rat, who loves to eat and is the sign of wealth and surplus.

Level 2 - Ox

In this hidden object and puzzle assembly level, find objects and solve a mystery with Ox, a hardworking and dependable friend.

Level 3 - Tiger

In this dating sim level, help find a wife for Little Dove. As the guardian of children, Tiger is a creative thinker, confident, and a little unpredictable – like turning an Ancient Chinese matchmaking situation into a game show.

Level 4 - Rabbit

In this hidden object/cooking level, Rabbit is usually quiet, elegant, kind, and friendly. But Rabbit’s hilarious reactions to your ingredient choices may prove otherwise as you help find the perfect ingredient for a special soup.

Level 5 - Dragon

In this cooking level, Dragon is a useful force in the kitchen, with magically-powered fiery and icy breath. As the symbol for luck and success, Dragon’s naturally-ingrained leadership will help get the job done … to a point. Then it’s on you.

Level 6 - Snake

Snake is usually able to calmly think of solutions amidst chaos … but not when it comes to babysitting. Help Snake choose a body shape to keep Baby safe in a gorgeous marketplace FULL of hazards.

Level 7 - Horse

In this transmutation level, energetic and carefree Horse needs help creating items for the human family that will create joy.

Level 8 - Goat

As the symbol of filial piety, purity, and kindness, Goat is on a poignant mission and needs help identifying hidden objects based on clues.

Level 9 -Monkey

Confident and careful, industriously crafty Monkey needs help with some paper crafts during a somber time.

Level 10 - Dog

Honest and smart, loyal Dog needs help cleaning up a decrepit garden and bringing it back to its sparkling glory.

Level 11 – Pig

With a new baby and parents who just need to rest, fending off overbearing relatives and their unsolicited advice is part of your tower defense mission. Gentle, caring, family-loving Pig is busy getting ready for a 100-day feast (and THEN everybody is invited)!

Level 12 - Rooster

It’s the ultimate boss fight … yourself! Self-reflection, correct choices, and time management are the keys to success!
