Editions are special versions of the Chicken Invaders episodes that are based around certain holidays. They come with the original version if you buy one on InterAction studios website, or as DLC on Steam. The only games that don't have any editions made for them are Chicken Invaders and Universe.

Editions usually replace graphics, sounds and music of the game with stuff related to the things they cover.

So far, there have been four different editions.

Christmas

These editions usually have the most effort going into them, with most of the graphics, sound and music being replaced. For example, only the Henterprise theme remained intact in Cluck of the Dark Side's Christmas edition.

Most InterAction studios games, including Piggly, Island Wars 2 and Loco also receive those editions.

Christmas editions are being made since The Next Wave.

Easter

These editions usually have the least effort put into them compared to other editions. Only the graphics and sounds get replaced.

Easter editions are being made since Revenge of the Yolk, however Cluck of the Dark Side hasn't received an Easter edition yet, and it's unknown if it ever will. Revenge of the Yolk and Ultimate Omelette are the only InterAction studios games to have an Easter edition.

Thanksgiving

In these editions, the graphics and the main theme music is replaced. They are unique from other ones in that the cutscene and in-game text is changed appropriately, since Chickens get replaced with turkeys. It was also why this edition started out with English being the only language available.

Thanksgiving editions are being made since Ultimate Omelette, and so far it's the only game that has a Thanksgiving edition.

Halloween

Those only have the graphics, sounds and the main theme replaced.

Cluck of the Dark Side is the only game that has a Halloween edition.

Trivia

  • Originally, the editions were only available when the holiday they celebrate arrived. Due to popular request, however, InterAction studios made them always available in 2004.
  • Cluck of the Dark Side does not have a Thanksgiving and an Easter edition yet, but they might be made after Universe is out.
