We tell each other stories in order to live. But are these stories passively describing our world as it is, or are they shaping our reality and feeding the power dynamics around us ? *Brain fart*/*Existential dread*

Inspired by the works of Michel Foucault, Paul B. Preciado and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, A Rat’s Life : The Cat Conspiracy is a story-rich first person rat adventure, with a touch of funny hihihi. Play as a working class rodent, and delve into a dystopian society populated by greedy business magnates, conspiracy nuts, revolutionary hackers and monsters. Something shady happened to your loved siblings who work for TERESAL, the cheese hunting empire of Ratatouille Rezos III, and only you can figure it out ! *Pressure*

Manage your schedule to go undercover and infiltrate TERESAL, while thwarting disturbing conspiracies. Escape from cats and fight smaller enemies. Gear up, learn new rodent abilities as you progress, and explore the interconnected map through the eyes of a rat.

A lot of rodents seem to think the end is near. Are they crazy or is a catastrophe on its way ?

Playable demo on Itch !
