Romeo and Juliet but with rodents.
A Rat's Quest

A Rat's Quest - The Way Back Home was announced today. It's said to be a "Romeo and Juliet-esque story" about a rat and a mouse. Mat, a rat, is trying to make his way to Nat, a mouse, who is being kept as a pet. Together, they want to escape to the freedom of the outside. Of course, it's not an easy journey and it is one that also includes "THE CLAW!"

It's being billed as an action-adventure title, but one that won't be out until 2021 for the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The game is in development from The Dreamerians, a small studio of developers hailing out of Mexico City. It will be published by HandyGames.


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!
