'The Night of the Rabbit' to be released on May 29
As his summer vacation winds down, Jerry meets the Marquis de Hoto, a magical anthropomorphic rabbit in a snappy suit. He offers to take Jerry on as an apprentice and to teach him the ways of the Treewalkers, who use a special type of magic to conjure up portals and travel between worlds. As a demonstration, de Hoto leads his apprentice through a tree portal into Mousewood, a peaceful world inhabited by anthro mice, squirrels, and other critters, which acts as a hub to reach further worlds.
The game has hand-drawn 2D graphics, and its interface is a simple point-and-click affair, with puzzles solved by using items in your inventory or selecting options from a dialogue tree. Its developer, Jan Müller-Michaelis (also known as Poki), was inspired by the story of Alice in Wonderland, and the possibility that the White Rabbit deliberately lured Alice to follow him.
The Night of the Rabbit will be released on May 29, in English and German-language versions.
