Indie developer Petoons Studio has announced hand-drawn 'ratoidvania' adventure Curse of the Sea Rats, a side-scrolling, story-driven transmedia project that will encompass an animated series, comic books, and toys. It's also the "first MetroidVania starring rats," according to Petoons Studio CEO Sergio Garcia.

Curse of the Sea Rats will feature four playable characters, local multiplayer support in addition to solo play, and eleven different scenarios that will see the game's group of heroes attempting to lift the pirate witch's curse that has transformed them into disease-ridden rodents.

Set amid Ireland's coast in 1777, Curse of the Sea Rats is a non-linear affair with weapons and abilities to upgrade, hand-drawn animation, and a "rich twisting" fantasy plot. You can find out more in the debut trailer below, and expect more info on the game during Gamescom later this month.

Curse of the Sea Rats is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC sometime in 2021, with DLC and free updates for the game also planned.

  • Looks good. Local multiplayer is a plus and I'm definitely digging the art style.
