HandyGames and The Dreamerians have announced that A Rat’s Quest: The Way Back Home is in development for Nintendo Switch.

This action-adventure game has “a Romeo and Juliet-esque story” about a rat and a mouse, covering the importance of love, friendship, and keeping promises.

The game’s hero, Mat the rat, must work out how to rescue Nat, a fearless mouse who is being kept as a pet.

They must secure their freedom by escaping outside – climbing, jumping, crawling, slithering, and sneaking like a rodent, whether that be between walls or under the floorboards.

“Teaming up with HandyGames for A Rat’s Quest has been a dream come true. Since we met, we felt we’d make a great team, and we were right!” enthuses The Dreamerians studio manager Jessie Cano.

“This game is our debut title, and we know at heart that we’ve found the perfect publisher for it, one that will empower the game to reach its full potential and audience.

“They truly believe in us – and we in them. That’s why we’re immensely happy to welcome them as part of our family and share this journey!”

A Rat’s Quest: The Way Back Home will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2021.
