Rattenkönig is a Brazilian folklore inspired cosmic horror adventure where you take a boat trip through the mangroves of Brazil in search of a fabled rat temple.
In Rattenkönig you follow the story of an adventurer who has been researching the fabled temple of the Rattenkönig. Your investigations (and a mysterious artefact) have led you to a remote mangrove in South-East Brazil. You now travel through the mangrove with a boatman who tends to the area…
There’s not a whole lot of interaction in Rattenkönig (particularly during the first half of the game), but it tells its story perfectly. The mangrove itself is very scenic and some of the sights you see later on are genuinely jaw dropping. The things you see don’t instil you with horror, but they do fill you with awe and dread as you delve into its unknowable and incomprehensible depths. Highly recommended.
