We’ve been hard at work polishing up as much stuff as we can while we continue on our path towards our first beta release. We’ve been getting a lot of new members lately and want to show some more progress to let everybody know that we are still working on this every single day and pumping out as much content into the game as we can for our first release. While it may look like we’re inactive, that is never the case as we’re all just too busy pumping out stuff for the game to really focus on anything. We do hope to correct that and start coming out with more regularly scheduled updates on the progress of R.A.T.S.
With that, I’d like to introduce our latest weapon, the Colt Python .357 Magnum.
This is one of the most beautiful revolvers on the planet and one of my favorite pistols of all time. It just had to make an appearance.
Next I’d like to show a unique item to the game of R.A.T.S., the Simulator Ball. It’s basically a hamster ball players can activate to access a host of simulated training scenarios…or maps as we like to call them. The inside of the sphere is a full 360 degree video screen and the rats have full freedom to run in any direction. Its genius is almost evil if they weren’t so cute scampering around in there.
Next I’d like to introduce you to some general items to help populate the maps in R.A.T.S. All credit on these assets go to Michael and a big thanks from us for his hard work and constant effort.
Next up are some general purpose items for use in filling out the rat sized areas of the game. Obviously while we’re hard at work making things for them to use, they’re hard at work putting them all together making bases and stuff.
Next we’ll take a look at some of the maps we have in progress. In particular, two we’d like to show: Mocktropolis and The Picnic. Mocktropolis is a multiplayer map supporting a host of different gamemodes. It is a literal sandbox created for the rats to wage all out war in. The Picnic is a singleplayer and coop map where the rats are tasked with protecting the scientist’s delicious lunch from hordes of invading insects.
And lastly a look at one of our newest characters to maker her way into the game…The Nurse. She’s a female lab rat trained as a combat medic and will be instrumental in your struggles while dishing out valuable health restoring cheese and the only one on the battlefield capable of reviving downed soldiers.
