A Rat’s Quest – The Way Back Home

HandyGames have announced another game for the Nintendo Switch: A Rat’s Quest – The Way Back Home. It will be released in 2021 in Europe and North America.

Here’s a trailer, some details, and the list of key features:

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 armor, 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.
