Lab Rat is a brand new narrative puzzle game coming to Steam this winter.Created by Gwen Frey (BioShock Infinite, Kine, The Flame & The Flood), and revealed during IGN’s Gamescom Awesome Indies show, the game’s designed to feel (at least at first) like a machine-generated puzzle game, but is in fact a hand-crafted narrative. We’re getting Portal vibes already.
Check out a reveal trailer below:“Do you ever feel like a rat in a Skinner box, pushing levers to feed an algorithm?,” says Frey in a press release. “I do, so I made Lab Rat because it’s more fun to laugh at our current situation than cry about it.”
You can sign up for a Lab Rat beta and wishlist the game on Steam right now.
