You’ve heard of Metroidvania, but have you heard of Ratoidvania? No? Well, get yourself acquainted with Curse of the Sea Rats as it’s coming to PC and consoles next year.

After a highly successful Kickstarter campaign (reaching 1600% of its target), this hand-drawn adventure from Petoons Studio and PQube is about a group of four friends transformed into rats by the evil pirate witch Flora Burn.

Set on the Irish coast, circa 1777, the game will be a non-linear experience, showcasing hundreds of quests, puzzles and battles. Below is an undiluted explanation on what one can expect of Curse of the Sea Rats:

  • Deep Gameplay & Story – A labyrinthine network of hundreds of pathways, rooms and discoveries lay before you; chart your own progress through a huge, open, non-linear game world as you attempt to track down the Pirate Witch who cursed you.
  • Endless Adventure – Play alone in a campaign of up to 12 hours, featuring dozens of non-linear quests to embark upon and multiple endings to unlock. Or play with up to three friends in local 4 player co-op, master each character’s abilities and find all of the secrets as a crew!
  • Also on Next Gen – Launching on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Curse of the Sea Rats also takes advantage of the incredible power of next gen systems by being available to players on the brand new consoles, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X.
  • Unique Art & Animation – Beautiful, hand-drawn animations, reminiscent of golden era Disney and Don Bluth, brings the games’ four heroes and countless cast of characters to life in a charming 2D style; combined seamlessly with detailed 3D environments creating a 2.5D platforming experience.
