Curse of the Sea Rats is an upcoming hand-drawn animation Ratoidvania (Metroidvania) on the way to Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and Steam. It will be shown off at Gamescom 2019 (August 20-22) and is an exploration-focused, side-scrolling RPG. A group of heroes has been transformed into rats by a pirate witch, and it’s up to them to rescue the Admiral’s son and break the spell.
“Curse of the Sea Rats is part of a transmedia project including an animated series, comic books, and toys”, says Sergio Garcia, CEO at Petoons Studio. “The game will become the first metroidvania starring rats.”
Four characters will be playable, with single and local multiplayer modes on offer. 11 scenarios await players, taking place on the coast of Ireland in 1777, and Curse of the Sea Rats will launch on all platforms in 2021.
