The title was developed by the creators of the first entry in the series, the independent studio Weappy. It was released on, among other platforms, PC, PS4 and etc..
This is the Police 2 for PC, PS4 and etc. takes place in Sharpwood – a small city located in the north of United States. The players assume the role of Lilly Reed, the new sheriff who will try bringing order to the city. Sadly, it won’t be easy as the city faces many problems. The citizens are struggling with the lack of food and the city became the home for many criminals. What’s more, the subordinates of the protagonist aren’t used to receiving orders from young women.

Similarly to the first game in the series, the gameplay in the PC, PS4 and etc. version of This is the Police 2 is based on two pillars. During the game players are managing the law enforcers, giving them orders and securing better equipment. Each policeman features an individual set of advantages and weaknesses that make him seem more like a living being. The same goes for the citizens of the city whose sympathy must be earned – one never knows when a friendship with influential people might save life. In addition to that, players must make hard decisions that are usually very shady from the ethical point of view – the objectives can be achieved by sticking to the rules or by deciding to use controversial methods like cooperation with criminals.
The graphics of This is the Police 2 utilize style similar to the one used in the first game in the series. Despite its simplicity, the developers managed to create convincing characters and locations.
