Hi there. So, this is “Rat King Entertainment”, the game development company by Jana Reinhardt and Friedrich Hanisch. We had a hobby team named SONEN HALS (loose translation: “Being very angry”, exact translation: “Such a neck!”) while in university and afterwards. All games (i.e. prototypes) we did in these times are highly dedicated to gameplay, and did not suffer from too much focus on eye-candy. They are pure. Of course, this changed. In fact, the Almighty Rat King likes products that are as playable as they are nice to look at! Expect some kind of double awesomeness here, with a delicious cherry of intellectuality on the top of the cream. At the moment we are working on small, artsy but nonetheless highly important games for Apple's iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad) and PC/Mac.
