Moorhuhn (distributed as Crazy Chicken in English-speaking countries) is a German casual game franchise for PCs and the Nintendo DS. It consists of more than 30 games, the first of which – a shoot ‘em up – was Germany’s most popular computer game in the early 2000s.
The Moorhuhn character is a brainchild of Ingo Mesche. The game (now distributed as Die Original Moorhuhn Jagd) was developed by the Dutch Witan studios, the Art Department advertising agency and Ingo Mesche as an advertisement for Johnnie Walker whisky in 1999. The game’s objective was to shoot down, through a point-and-click interface, as many cartoonish “swamp chickens” (German: Moorhühner; literally “moorhens”, ie. willow grouses) as possible in 90 seconds.
From 2000 onwards the game was officially made available for download by Art Department.It became wildly popular in German-speaking Europe, to the point of being denounced in the media as a threat to the bottom line of businesses, on account of the number of hours wasted by employees playing the game.
Included are Moorhuhn Shooter games 1, 2, 3, Winter Edition, X, Wanted and Piraten as well as the racing games Moorhuhn Kart 1 & 2.
