A Rat's Quest: The Way Back Home

Publisher HandyGames and developer The Dreamerians have announced their brand new game A Rat’s Quest: The Way Back Home.

The game is an action adventure title and it is planned to release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC sometime in 2021. You can read all about the game below.

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!

A Rat’s Quest: The Way Back Home is an action-adventure game by Mexican studio The Dreamerians and will be published by HandyGames in 2021. It’s currently in development for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
