Beginnings...

The team and I have dedicated much to bringing the world enjoyable and memorable experiences in the form of video games, and encouraging others to do the same with the Half-Life Mod "Half-Rats: A Fever Dream", which made an appearance in PC Gamer Magazine, and "Half-Rats: Parasomnia", heralded as one of the top mods of 2016 by Rock, Paper, Shotgun. Go ahead and view the video above and below if you wish. We can do better than THAT, though. Read on, people!

Okay, yeah, you MIGHT be mildly impressed, but YOU can help us with this next one! (which will be bigger, better, and have infinitely better graphics!) While earning prizes I might add...some of them even one-of-a-kind!

Though the projects we have worked on have been free of charge to all so far - the future holds many exciting prospects for Heath Games - prospects that will require funding to cover the costs of! Yikes, eh? The next game in the series is an RPG/FPS that shall be simply called "Half-Rats", and it is currently being developed on Unreal Engine 4. We are currently in the planning/pre-production phase. The game will once again take place in the 1880s and will feature the intrepid "Half-Rats", a diverse cast of relate-able characters, as well as continue the paranormal/horror motif with an evolving story line that begins as an action/adventure and ends in a fight for survival against an other-worldy host of supernatural horrors. The game will feature period-accurate architecture, clothing, speech and weaponry, as well as fantastical elements such as a spellcasting/enchantments system and wondrous retrofuturistic sci-fi technology.

Sounds like a neat idea, but whah?

I'll just rip this off our IndieDB page and paste it here:

"A Paranormal First-Person Shooter, based on the story, "The Rather Extraordinary Circumstances of 'Half-Rats'". Taking place in Detroit, Michigan, 1887; the tale follows the rather extraordinary circumstances of one "Half-Rats", a bitter ne're-do-weel who fell from all social grace after his parents' deaths. In his youth he was a promising erudite, but he now subsists on odd jobs and crime. Bearing only hints of his former affluence.
His rough turn is about to take him to the edge of perdition and beyond. His very fortitude will be put to the test before his journey is through; his very view of the world and of humanity will be upset indefinitely. Unbeknownst to him, he'll soon bear witness to and take great a great part in things no mortal should! Will he rise to the occasion? Or let it eat him alive?"

SOME features:

- Meet important characters along the way with their own backstories and crosses to bear.
- Collect essence and combine it with others to create powerful enchantments and spells.
- Inventory, trade and theft system.
- Weapon mechanics that won't wrack your brain and cause nervous derangement.
- Develop your skills and abilities
- Historically accurate dialogue, architecture, dress and weaponry.
- Semi-Open world - meet and greet with your chums, irritate your dubious landlord! Go and run errands or complete "Missions" (Side stories)
- The game is divided into sections which evolve the story-line at your own pace. From Adventure, to Thriller, to Horror!
- Taunt and "Drunk" taunt system (A combat multiplier...) that can make NPCs faint, become enraged, flee, or shrug off the player.

And MUCH, MUCH more...Trust me, there's a lot.

I'm sold...HOW can I help, though?
