I created this game for the monthly MAGS competition on the AGS website (this month's theme was simply "Rats"), I'm not entirely sure if it belongs in Casual or Darkside - Mods feel free to move as you see fit!

The Rat Pack is a simple turn-based strategy game in which you control a colony of rats - you can forage for food, breed, expand your nest or lie low to fool the humans into thinking they need fewer traps than they actually do - with a bunch of random events that may help or hinder you. Probably appears harder than it actually is on the first couple of attempts. I plan to expand on this game and release as a low-cost commercial title, but if you want to take a look at the MAGS version, it will of course always be completely free.

Thanks Ana! I was really in two minds as to which was more appropriate but I guess Darkside is the better place for it. laugh

I'll have some more screenshots and development news up on Itch (and GameJolt) soon. I'm genuinely excited by how this project is going.

Nice job Cap.

Looks like things are really starting to come together. thumbsup

After a bit of a hiatus, this is back in production. A quick alpha test video to show roughly where I am with it so far:

​Following a poll on Twitter which was overwhelmingly in favour of the idea, I will be launching an open beta of The Rat Pack in the near future. This will effectively be the full game but without polish added and without achievement. Feedback from this will help me considerably with testing and balancing and game.

I plan to give testers whose feedback I use a mention in the credits and a discount on the full game when released; if a tester's feedback is particularly valuable, I will gift them a copy.

The open beta could potentially start as early as January 2019, but... watch this space.

Hey Cap, when you get to the point for the open Beta start up a new post with the particulars, let me know (PM me to make sure I see it), and I'll sticky it.
