The mouse brothers Verm and Lance have heard rumour of a divine food hoard. But to reach it, they will have to venture through the territory of the lawless sewer rats...

This demo is just a snippet of what's to come.

Amazing demo! Great characters that I really felt I cared about. Art style and animation are top notch. I am eagerly looking forward to the full release of this game. You really need to get a placeholder on Steam so I can add it to my wishlist (so I don't forget about it). 

I loved it! Especially the boss fight, I love how it was so incorporated into the story and didn't feel like a 'ohh we need a boss here' thing. Can't wait to try the full game!

aw this is sick as hell. the worldbuilding, the characters and their design, all of it is amazing. it really gives me mouse guard vibes too.

Excuse me, I downloaded the soundtrack, and there's an extra song in here... "Hunting Tigers," which i only assume is the fight against the cat. But like... is it supposed to be in here? cuz we don't fight the cat. Or maybe it's just a little teaser....

I REALLY like this kind of game, and the theme is great! I just want to point out one thing i found quite funny; Everyone are wearing clothes, in fact you establish in the first few seconds that mice know about and wear clothes, all covering clothes, and every character we meet wear some kind of clothes that cover up their private area, even the boss that is almost entirely naked wears a loin-cloth.. so you've established that mice/rat/mole-society thinks it is proper to wear clothes that cover their private parts... all except Verm.. wich means that the protagonist feels, unlike EVERYONE ELSE, no shame what-so-ever in running around butt-naked! xD

I've played this back in the beginning of the year and I keep coming back to the game enamored by the worldbuilding you've given us in this demo.

absolute pogchamp of a game

This game is mad gorgeous!  

Can you please add a mobile control option with a virtual joypad and two buttons for x and z?

Hi! Can i ask you if the game will be released on Steam?

It will! Steam and Itch.io, most likely.

Awesome! Thanks! I can't wait to see this incredible game complete

I made a YouTube video on this game.

This is so well done! The story, the animations, the characters, the atmosphere and suspense, the music, the sounds - just great!

oooohhhmyyyygooooodd


This is the best thing I've seen on itch.io- nay - the best game I've seen in a long while.
The writing was excellent and immersive. The art? Just *chef's kiss*

Also, did anyone find the thimble?? I'm sure I'm not the first person to have found it, but I'm interested to see how many people found its clever spot.

I found it and am still trying fruitlessly to save the big mouse (frick I forgot his name)

This is amazingly fun! And the music is EXTREMELY immersive! Love it all!

Cool stuff. Nice story. I can't wait to see its full version.

I love this game more than I can express. Lately, because of quarantine, I've been developing a tabletop RPG similar to Dungeons and Dragons where you play as a rodent, and this game has exactly the vibe I'm looking to create with it. The swiss army knife god weapon, the eloquent clothed mice fighting rat thugs in a sewer, and the high-tier boss being an exterminator are all so perfect. Awesome job.

Pleasantly surprised!

Pros and cons are down below) Check out me vid (the game is the 2d there):

Advantages:

1. The game is EPIC! I was mind blown at the end. I didn't expect any of this and was amazed by the game! Such a great job!

2. Artstyle is top hole! The game feels like a saga - mice wearing medieval looking clothes (or not wearing any)

3. The battles are exceptional! Very entertaining. I like that you added animation to the battle. Characters are always moving and it is so nice to look at!

Disadvantages:

1. When you give a character full set of clothes - the others seem naked. It strange that Lance wore clothes while Verm was going everywhere tits first (kinda funny).

2. I wish there would be more interactable objects from which you can get some lore on the universe. I hope the full version of the game will come out and will have that!

Overall:

Enjoyed the experience a lot! Had heeby jeebies all over me at the end. Such a great game. When will the full version be out? I can't wait for it! That is a strong 5/5! Great job! I am so impressed!

Hope my feedback was useful!

Dude I love this!! Super rad!!

Super, super game! The idea is so unique and so well made! I recorded my playthrough (linked in case anyone is interested) and really enjoyed it. Can't wait for the final product!

Hi! i'm a fan of your work and because of this i would know if in the future, will this game comes on Steam

This is incredibly creative. It's such a strange blend of fantasy and realism. Making the regular seem like fantasy by naming things god items and a supermarket 'heaven' is fantastic. Super looking forward to the actual game!

Featuring Small Saga. Keep it up !

We loved our play-through of Small Saga, so much so it would have been rude not to put it in writing. We were honored to have this available to try for our latest blog piece..  https://www.betacade.com/single-post/6-Small-Saga

OMG! That was fantastic!! I cannot wait to play the full game!

That demo was awesome ! A really cool project, just saw that the kickstarter went well so good job to the team :) 

Your game is AWESOME!!!! I can't wait to see more!! I love the animations and the story was badass. Keep up the good work. My only complaint is the screen is a bit small.

Very cool... but, how do mice know what horses look like?

Amazing app!!! Please implement gamepad support... that is all. ^^

Thank Twitter algorithm for recommending one of your latest tweets ;) I just now learned of your new project and am following it. Hope the development goes smoothly for you, and keep up the good work!

THIS IS AMAZING!!! I cannot WAIT to see the full game! I 100000% would pay good money for the full game!!

love this.  Sad I missed the KS.  Would totally have backed it.

Ah!! I was fully prepared to donate to your kickstarter, turns out I found this gem just a little too late!! AMAZING work!! I can't wait to see the final game!

Omg! Amazing game! I played the demo and I'm so sad its over... I really hope you keep up the amazing work! so.. good.. can't wait for more!

I like this game!
