Posted on July 18, 2019 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop

Mexican studio The Dreamerians and publisher HandyGames today announced A Rat’s Quest: The Way Back Home, a new action-adventure game. The project is in development for Switch and other platforms.

We have the following overview and trailer for A Rat’s Quest:

A Rat’s Quest – The Way Back Home is a Romeo and Juliet-esque story about a rat and a mouse. Mat, the hero of the game, is trying to find a way to his beloved Nat, a fearless mouse being kept as a pet. Together, they’re planning their escape to freedom: the outside. But beware – this journey is full of dangers, one of them being THE CLAW.

Experience a giant’s world from the perspective of our tiny hero, Mat the rat. For you and me, an old closet is only that – but for Mat, it’s a towering dungeon with the promise of adventure. Play hide and squeak with fearsome creatures and slash them with your shiny rivet or fend them off with your sturdy button.

Moving Story: Experience a story about love, friendship and keeping promises in three acts.
Rat Mode: Climb, jump, crawl, slither and sneak like a rodent.
Hybrid Gameplay: Experience the narrowness in walls and under the floor by a switching perspective between 3D platforming, side-scrolling and top-down.
Full Immersion: Compasses are for humans. Make your own path! No mini-map, no waypoints… just your rodent survival instincts.
Tough as Nails: No armour, no ordinance drops. Use the world and your wits to overcome overwhelming danger.
A Rat’s Evolution: Gather gadgets and “add-ons” to survive the way back home…
Quests and Choices: Try different approaches when solving riddles and quests.

A Rat’s Quest: The Way Back Home is targeted for release in 2021.
