[UPDATE] Rats Alpha 4 : The evolving of Rats
What's new?
  • Stars system : Depending on the result, the player now earn stars pending on the player's level of skill. These stars are used to unlock in-game bonuses and special levels. We have also enabled the possibility for you to replay previous levels in order to get them all!
  • City Map : The player now progresses from level to level on a city map and must steal every diamonds within the city to move on to the next one.
  • Blueprints : Blueprints of permanent tools are hidden throughout the levels and can be unlocked by spending the coins that are accumulated during the adventure.
  • Pig & Fox : We are happy to introduce two new characters into the game : a stubborn pig and clever fox. We are now up to four guard types which behave & react differently.
  • Revamped Visuals : We have taken the time to renew the art work of the environments which pushes the cartoony style of the game. As the days go by, our tile set just grows bigger and bigger...
  • Power ups : We have added new pick able items which have various temporary & powerful effects on your Rat!
  • Full of small details like an update to the user interface, new guard's behaviour, new visual and sound effects, a ton of new sound tracks and about thirty five to forty playable levels!
Platforms that we currently support : Windows, Mac and Linux.

So, what are our next milestones?

In the next weeks, we expect to :
  • Have all the levels required to publish the game.
  • Have more than 20 achievements to unlock in game and via Steam.
  • Start the closed beta campaign.

... and what we could have in the future?
  • Different Game Mode.
  • An online Leaderboard to compare your score.
  • A Local/Hotseat Multiplayer mode to play the game with your friend ...or on your behalf, to improve your friendship...
  • And finally, we would really like to port the game to IOS and the Android because we believe that Rats - Time is running out! would be perfect for the mobile platform & welcomed by its community!

Rats on IGS for the next 4 days!

Rats - Time is running out!
Live the life of a bank robber & feel the adrenaline rush of a heist! Sneak in, grab the diamond, avoid the guards & get out before time runs out. Your mission: take back from the Pigs who control all the banks.

Our focus is to recreate a sort of Pac-Man on speed in which you will feel constant pressure all the while forcing you to be concerned about the time. You will need to be focused, quick & strategic in the same time in order to succeed. In the end, you will feel the adrenaline rush of a bank robbery & receive a greater sense of reward when you successfully complete any heist.

Main features will include:
  • Experiencing the adrenaline rush of a heist.
  • Feeling the pressure of time and planning every second and action.
  • Upgrading and buying equipment for your rat.
  • Planning your next mission.
  • Non-linear levels where you need to think your way to get out… before time runs out!
  • Challenging your friends on best score and unlocking achievements.
  • Playing with different rats.
  • Local Co-op mode.
  • Controller enabled. But not included :)

Tried the game at MIGS14', it was surprisingly addictive. I think the fact that you're getting chased pumps up a bit of adrenaline, stress and keeps on going. Love the sort of RPG elements that gives boost to your character. Plus some levels are pretty hard!

If it showed off a new glamourous mechanic, I'd say yes but it doesn't look like it'll meet that.
