The game is a series of survival puzzles, mostly consisting of methods to scare away or distract the hordes of hungry rats, or direct them towards murderous knights. The main method of scaring rats off is fire, as rats will seldom enter within a radius of burning torches and braziers. The player controls Amicia, a sling-thrower who can throw rocks to break drawbridge chains or stun guards long enough for the rats to ambush them. She can also craft special ammunition and supplies, which include fire-starting sulfur stones that ignite braziers. The two younger brothers can be directed towards specific tasks when Amicia is busy.

Coming to Xbox, PS and PC in May

It looks somewhat interesting. I'll definitely consider getting it when it drops in price.

Was always interested and after seeing the good reviews I'll definitely buy it before the month is out.

I'll have to give this another look. I had dismissed it, because the clips of rats and stealth just didn't seem interesting to me. However, this video makes it clear that the game is actually a linear character-driven adventure with excellent graphics, atmosphere, and environments. I didn't realize that. I'm interested in those types of games, and the historical setting is unique. I'll have to check it out when I have time. My only gripe is that rats get a bad rap already, and the game turns them into blood thirsty villains. Oh well, I'll get over it, lol.



Metacritic is 81-83, with user scores 86-88.

It's $50 right now, which is a bit steep for a 12 hr game without replay value, so I'll wait for a price drop. I need to wait anyhow, because other games are in line before it. But it does look worthwhile. I want to get around to it eventually.
