Lab Rat is a satirical Sci-Fi puzzle game that blends sokoban-esque puzzles with lasers and a little pain as you complete tests for an inquisitive AI that is imprisoning you.
Currently in development by the co-creator of The Flame in the Flood and her a dev team (Chump Squad), Lab Rat is a sokoban-esque Sci-Fi puzzle game where you become a human lab rat for an AI that’s trying to learn about humankind. Along the way the results of your tests and the survey response data you give will end up giving the AI a rather misguided insight into what it’s like to be a human.
Levels are made up of different colored moveable blocks and different colored lasers. There are over 80 unique puzzles and the core gameplay revolves around moveable blocks and lasers. Getting struck by a laser causes you to become charged with the corresponding color and you can only move blocks of the same color.
It’s a fun looking puzzler that blends humor with creative and challenging puzzle design. Sign up for the Beta to see how you fare in the tests.
