Curse of the Sea Rats is an exploration-focused, hand-drawn animation side-scroller RPG leading a group of heroes who are transformed into rats by a pirate witch.

Help them rescue the Admiral’s son and break the magic spell!

Curse of the Sea Rats will feature 4 playable characters, and single and local multiplayer modes in which you will have to explore the island, battle diabolic creatures, and fight brutal bosses commanded by the evil pirate Flora Burn. Forge your own path to freedom in a non-linear quest through the vast and mysterious coast of Ireland in 1777. 

Curse of the Sea Rats packs all of the best features from the metroidvania genre featuring beautiful 2D hand-drawn animation and 3D environments, combined with unique real-time combat mechanics, and of course, lots of rats!
