poke rat

Vague FAQ

  • Can you cheat? Yes. Should you cheat? Well, I have the power to manually expunge scores, but if it brings you closer to rat, then really, who I am I to judge.
  • Is the high-scores submission encrypted? Technically. Wait, is it encrypted in a rat-related way? Yes. Preemptive apologies for when the high-scores server inevitably explodes.
  • Any data collected? Nope, purely rat related glory.

is there only one hat or are there more?

Only one for now, but if people want more hats then who am I to deny public will. New-Hat-Technology™ will be investigated!

yaay more hats for rats

PLEASE.. I cannot rat.. I have tried to play this game on different devices and none will run. I crave only rat and I have faith that if I can ever commit rat within this game I will enjoy it very much

Oh no! What operating systems/devices and browsers are you trying to behold the rat on? I can't recreate locally at the moment :(

Technical info for the curious: This issue is likely now resolved. Project is a unity project built with webGL, and by default it will try to set up a cache. The issue is a timing one - if the network connection is a bit slow for whatever reason or happens out of order, you'll get a message in the browser's console saying "[UnityCache] indexedDB database could not be opened". Since this is cache related, you can disable the cache in builds under Project Settings>Player>HTML5>Publishing Settings>Data Caching which doesn't make a huge different for loading in most cases, particularly with smaller projects.

While a bit late, I found someone else with the same issue and was able to sort it out for them, so it may work for you now. If you give it a go again, let me know how if it works for you!


Phew! My fingers are tired! What a lovely game! I come back here every day when on my lunch break with my friends and we try to beat our high scores! ( I'm OX on the leaderboards) We always end up laughing our butts off because of the dancing rat! Anyways, thank you for making this lovely game!

Thanks much, glad you enjoy it! I'll do my best not to accidentally ruin the high-scores server, still learning about how to make that all work well. If nothing else, screenshots of the local 'recent rat' number to prove your rat-poking excellence should continue to work even if the worst happens! :D
