Finally, after years of prep, we’ve moved on from Half-Life mods, and came back full circle after the success of our first two titles. Now, while our last title is preparing for its debut on steam, we’ve started diving into our first standalone on the beautiful and glorious Unreal Engine.
“Half-Rats” or, for now, “Project MOPAT” will be a story-driven, cinematic first-person shooter, taking place in America in 1887. It will feature light RPG elements. It will follow the tale of “Half-Rats”, a cynical, bitter protagonist who’s led a rough and tumble life, and has a history rife with traumatic events - along with a drinking problem. After a falling-out, his estranged brother has gone missing, and Half-Rats is compelled by familial love, and the promise of one last chance at a decent life, to find him and rekindle their relationship. Little does Half-Rats know, the truth he’s about to uncover is an ugly one, and that the otherworldly agency behind it all is far uglier, and more insidious than anything he could have imagined - and it’s got big plans. The game will start off as an action/adventure, work its way into a paranormal investigative thriller, and finally end as a supernatural horror experience.
There’s plenty more where that came from:
We’ve always got our feelers out for new talent, too. Looking for more artists at the moment.
