I remember the day of invasion well. The memories still burn deeply, like spicy chicken wings.
They came without warning, squawking menacingly, their ruffled feathers darkening the sun. Invading intergalactic chickens, out to punish humanity for our oppression of their earthly brethren.
I instantly knew what had to be done. I dropped my half-eaten chicken burger and jumped in my cockpit. With a greasy finger I set my lasers to "extra crispy" and blasted off to intercept the fowl invaders.
It wasn't easy. Squawks, feathers flying, the smell of charred chicken everywhere. Three times they invaded, each time with increasingly devious plans. Three times I managed to push them back whence they came, and secure humanity a few more years as the dominant species of this planet.
After their last retreat, I headed for my local Space Burger to bask in the glow of my recent victory. Breathing a sign of relief. I sat down to enjoy a double chicken-burger with crispy chicken wings on the side.
Little did I know that my greatest adventure was yet to come...
The plot begins with the player/hero at Space Burger. An intergalactic portal suddenly opens and a ship known as the millennium hatch-ling comes out. The pilot says his name is Hen Solo and urges the hero to follow him to his galaxy to see the Chickens' latest creation. Eventually convincing him, the hero and Hen solo proceed through the portal to a whole different galaxy.
The hero is separated from Hen solo, and flies right into the barrel of the chickens' gargantuan device. Immediately flying out of the way, the hero watches as the machine fires a humongous egg at a battle station that looks very much like the death star from star wars, and the battle station is easily destroyed. The narrator then realizes that the player has stumbled across some kind of testing site for the chickens' "latest contraption of doom". The machine then leaves the scene, and the hero is attacked by a horde of chicken invaders, which he destroys quickly with the help of a brand new weapon, the Boron Rail-gun. The player also discovers satellite weapons, and uses them every so often until they run out of ammo.
The hero then stops at a nearby star system as Hen solo reunites with him, and explains that he emerged a couple star systems away, explaining why the hero was separated from his partner. Hen solo then explains that the machine known as the Vitelline Molecular Propulsor, (Or the Egg Cannon) is on its way to Earth, and it is programmed to fire a huge egg at the planet Earth, and then let the sun's heat cook the egg, causing the surface of Earth to encrust and destroy the planet.
The two characters team up and proceed through the galaxy to stop the Egg Cannon. After a fight with a Giant robotic Space-crab, The hero and Hen solo split up and take 2 separate routes that the egg cannon could have taken. The Hero meets the Egg Cannon on his route, but the Mother Hen-ship returns before he can destroy the Egg Cannon. After eliminating the Mother Hen-ship, the hero finds Hen Solo, and tells him what happened. Hen Solo then says for the hero to head to the galactic core to stop the egg cannon, and leaves to protect his own galaxy.
Our hero continues his journey with the narrator as his guide and companion as he makes it to the core. Instead of the egg cannon, he finds a planetary egg city made by the chickens, and quickly destroys it. Hen solo arrives shortly afterwards, and says that the Egg cannon jumped through the black hole in the center of the galactic core, and says that the hero must go through the black hole. The hero reluctantly agrees since he has no choice. He then arrives at a mysterious galaxy in which he must escape from to proceed with his mission.
The hero flies through another portal, arriving at a star system that is about to explode and go SUPERNOVA. The narrator explains that there is a chance of getting out of this mess by flying towards the explosion and through the black hole that forms in the center of the explosion. The hero once again agrees because there is no other option, and flies through the black hole. He arrives back at the galaxy where the egg cannon was recently, and realizes that he is going in circles. He is then confronted by a group of chickens that appear from a nearby planet.
After escaping the attack, he flies through another portal and arrives at the Space Burger corporation's home galaxy. The narrator realizes the Space Burger Corporation has a way of supplying its stores, including the ones in the milky way. He also discovers that they might be using a complex network of portals that lead to multiple galaxies. The hero follows a supply droid and eventually finds a portal to home, but not before wreaking havoc in the headquarters, not to mention destroying the main machine known as the "Iron Chef".
After arriving near the center of the milky way, the hero makes his way to the solar system and confronts the egg cannon just as it's approaching Earth. After a long battle, The hero wins and once again returns to the Space Burger, and goes back to his lunch-ordering. The narrator then tells the audience, "Let us leave our hero to a well-deserved rest; Content in the knowledge that our little home in the milky way is once again safe. For now...", hinting at the next game in the series - Chicken Invaders 5.
The game ends in an epilogue with hundreds of Space Burger Security droids heading towards the Hero's position. To be continued?...
