We did it!!

Release date: Early 2017

Venture as mice of chivalry descending into an ever-shifting dungeon filled with golden cheddar. Lethal traps and puzzles—and the greed of your friends—threaten your valiant pursuit for riches and glory.

How will you and your friends cooperate? When will you betray them? In the end, only the most daring mouse knight can escape alive.

Mind the Trap is a party game that pits you and your friends against each other in a mix of dungeon platforming and minigames. The game plays on the mischievous balance between cooperation and opportunistic backstabbing. Players must work together—and occasionally "use" each other—to overcome obstacles, while strategizing on their selfish need to grab every golden cheddar that comes into sight. It's all about finding the right timing to come out on top.

Intricate Dungeons
The dungeons focus on player-versus-environment and are each themed to challenge a variety of cooperative puzzle solving and platforming skills. Cheddar and secret items are scattered throughout, taunting you as they sit shiny behind deadly traps, and it's every mouse for itself. Outwit your friends and leave the dawdlers in the dust. Grab every cheddar wedge you can and don't hold back.

Versus Minigames
The minigames on the other hand focus on player-versus-player battles and introduce unique rules and mechanics in a closed arena. Examples include dueling with weapons, collecting and pelting each other with objects, and hunting a monster in a round of pitch black hide-and-seek. All players contribute an even amount of cheese to start, the total of which is then distributed by performance at the end of the round. This is your chance to prove yourself on an even playing ground, take revenge on those who betrayed you, maybe even team up, and reward yourself with your opponents' hard-earned cheddar.

Simple Mechanics
Run, jump, grab and throw—that's it. The game is easy to pick up so players of all skill levels can enjoy it. The rest of the fun comes from how you and your friends play together.

Attention to Detail
Everything from the traps to the ruins to the landscape is handcrafted and delicately placed. We take every opportunity to output the highest quality we can offer.

Other Features
  • Online play with friends
  • Character customization via discoverable garments
  • Random challenges and bogus achievements for bonus cheddar
  • Modes (randomized levels, free-play)

Mind the Trap is scheduled to be released in early 2017 as a fully feature-complete title. Between now and then we will continue to polish the game, design more levels, and implement online play.

We are targeting the PC platform and will be looking into porting to consoles in the near future.

This is our first game, and we hope you like it. We treat your feedback like golden cheddar because it will continue to make us better developers. If you like it, help us spread the word!

@STEVEBILLYBOB We hope to port over to consoles. We have been talking with Sony lately, so a port over to playstation seems likely.
