Perfect game. Was shocked when I apparently beat it? Did, would, and could wander for hours.
A downloadable game? for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Hey there buddy, you've been cordially invited to the sewer for the biggest rat party ever hosted.
We've got cheese, fruit, sewer water, and danger.
Wander the sewer and find messed up rats, old food, and maybe buried treasure(?).
Come along and make a friend or two.
Featuring music by Lady Saytenn.

While I have never been in a rave, I cannot imagine it would feel anything but exactly like this game: an endless chaotic party choke-full of weird conversations (which are here pretty well-written, I must admit) and even weirder situations that follow one another in a series of events that seem to have nothing common among them. “Sewer Rave” is a great little exploration game that although quickly becoming repetitive nevertheless is certainly more than redeemed by its crazy dialogues and thick, unmistakable atmosphere that the creator(s) of this game managed to nail down perfectly.
love this game, contracting the plague hits SO MUCH DIFFERENTLY IN THIS DAY AND AGE.......
the fact that the m o v e m e n t c u b e s move without you was my only frustration, makes some of the platforming nigh impossible :(
besides that i kinda loved the sense of never knowing where i was and just moving from room to room aimlessly and just coincidentally ending up where i needed to be haha :)
i have adopted the phrase "ready to rock and rat" into my life and i couldn't be happier
wow was that from the game? i don't even remember writing that. gonna start sprinkling that one into my vocabulary
oh also I have a question. I tried punching the rat king but he kept shrinking and then I couldn't punch him any more and then I respawned, so I tried just pushing him overboard but that didn't work either. am I misunderstanding how it works or is there just something I haven't figured out?
yeah there isn't much to that right now. you puncha puncha him until it's over. i may change it in the big update coming up.
I still haven't managed to do any of the platforming sections, even the simplest (been delightedly calling them ratforming to my patient boyfriend) but this is so addictive otherwise. wish there were just a couple more incentives to exploring (like giving people stuff, relaying a message, w/e) but I get that overall that's not really the mood down here with the rats. have started a folder with screenshots of my favorite rats. so far it's goo dood, rat who thinks there might be cats down there, cold rat, big sleepy rat, snake that comes out of the sludge to party, joey, and the all-important piano rat. he is probably my favorite. I don't know why I'm so in love with this game but you know what? rat
very good and vaguely spooky.
Is there a Sewer Rave discord? I'd love to share some choice screenshots and sip sludge with my fellow rats.
I'd be so into this honestly. would be cool if there was a channel with a 10 second rate limit for us slow-speed rats too
I bought this in that racial equality bundle. Downloading it was hands down one of the best decisions I've ever made. Every time I boot it up I discover something strange and new, be it a room, an NPC or dialogue. The energy of the game is surreal, cursed, and vaguely forbidden, which just so happens to be a very large part of my aesthetic. Every line of dialogue feels like a fresh shitpost straight off of Tumblr and it's amazing. The poorly drawn graphics just add to the vibe of this modern day masterpiece, and the soundtrack is unironically great. Everything about Sewer Rave shouldn't be as absurdly entertaining as it is, yet the rats do not care, and the game is very fun nonetheless.
All in all, this game is a masterpiece that has been looked over by a community that doesn't see the true appeal and value in it. Surely this game will be an indie cult classic in years to come, and if not, it absolutely should.
This game seems very cool in theory, but with no alternative text font options, it's unplayable for me. If there does happen to be some way to change the text font, I'd be thrilled to know of it. I would love to play it but the text just makes it too inaccessible for me.
Hey there, I'm so sorry about that. There are no other font options at the moment but it is something I will definitely look into for when I make the update.
I haven't even unzipped it yet but I must comment on the decision to designate it as a game? [stet] on this platform because I'm already enjoying reading itch.io's default text on it to my friends and I haven't even played it yet.
Played this with my girlfriend and we had a blast. The game nails the atmosphere of a rave and manages to be energetic throughout our entire playthrough. All of the dialogue is hysterical and endearing, I can't reiterate how great of an aesthetic the game has. There are some optional platforming sections that are a little janky but that's more on me then the game, plus they're optional, there's nothing missed from doing something else. Overall 10/10, loved it and it was definitely worth picking up. Do play with some friends for the best experience
Can I invert the mouse? It's more maddening than the music.
I genuinely felt one with the rats. I had no idea what I was doing and it was literally amazing. Honestly? My new favorite game now. 11/10. Definitely worth the 3 dollars.
This is an absolutely AMAZING game I love it SO much. Partying with rats is my absolute dream and the wildly surreal elements of this game make it an absolute treat. Adding every song from this game to my spotify playlist. I have no idea what to do with all this stuff I'm collecting and I'm absolutely ok with that. Great game.
I love partying with these rats! At first I got it for my macbook but for some reason I couldn't click on characters to talk to them? I know its not a trackpad problem cause I plugged in a real mouse and that didn't work either. May be a bug for the mac version? Cause I got this on my brother's pc too and it worked just fine there- played it all the way through jammin to that rat edm.
I've noticed I have a lot of trouble clicking with my PC trackpad to talk. I really wish you could change the controls since holding shift to run messes with my arthritis after a while too
This game is awesome. Pls play it. Even if its just for the music because the music itself is rad.
I had a lot of fun with this game, exploring the world is very addictive and satisfying and there always seems to be something new to find. The surreal, psychadelic atmosphere certainly added to it as well, I can't say I've ever been off my head on drugs at a party but Sewer Rave gave me a decent idea of what that'd be like.
i have played a lot of this game in the past few days and i still have no idea what the sewer water does. the relaxation rooms and party rooms both seem to have it. i am so confused. overall 9/10 game only because i can never find the 4th object
unironically a super cool game, lots of weird little things making you just want to keep playing and finding stuff out
Its a very good game. Theres lot of places to explore and its a very immersive experience, truly felt like a little man going through the sewer. A little scary to navigate while high, the Bambi room made me cry the first time. I can't figure out how to save or how to trade with the snake which I feel like blocked up some of the gameplay that I would have liked to do. I would play more games like this.
I have a hard time calling this 'good' or 'bad' it just is. While I found some of the humor a little contrived I also could NOT stop watching those two rats have their rap battle. I kept staring at them go at it for like 10 minutes. Anyway almost want to make a 'which rat from sewer rave are you' uquiz so i enjoyed myself
Please make that quiz I beg of you
Visionary. Incredible. Disorienting.
My first though upon finishing this game was "Oh god, where am I?" But like, in a good way. Like the way you feel at a rave.
Part surrealist indie nightmare and part adventure, this game explores the unspeakably desperate nature of party scenes, the hollow, rotting void in your soul, and what it feel like to get knifed by an opossum. Play it.
this is perfect
though i have one single request:
would it be possible to make this VR compatible?
I don't have the equipment for that
God this game is addicting. Does a perfect rave simulation at the same time , after playing (and maybe winning?) for 2 hour, I am fully motion sick and the room is spilling. Really allows me to experience the mindless conversations and the dizzy, FAST, super sloowwww drag sensation/feeling you get out in a rave or a club. I could explore for hours more even! You can even submit phrases for the rats to say! There some creepy rooms and even stranger characters but man i loved finding a new one every so often, blew my mind so much could be contained in this game. i have it for ios, so I will say the controls are a little confusing at first, but once you get the hang of it it's easy as pie!
Just started playing and I already love this!
so are we a rat in the game also?
Yes. This game is yes. Don't throw up when u see bambi tho. That shit.... woah man it makes you feel like you've done LSD even though I've never even done LSD... great game tho.... Enjoy collecting cheese and berries. Hail the Possum Queen!
I've always said a good game is a game that achieves the goal it set out to do and Sewer Rave does exactly that I feel: It's a Rat Rave. Nothing more, nothing less. The surreal feels and bangin' tunes are spot on and great. At the end of the day it is just walking around and reading a handful of procedurally generated dialogues as wacky stuff happens, but that's not a negative per se. It's short, but I thoroughly enjoyed my time with it. 🐀/🐀. Very sewer, very rave.
this game bombs. it's actually amazing. booting it up and spending an hour just exploring is a surreal experience and everything about it is just.... mwah. absolutely fantastic
bambi is fucking terrifying also the trans train station (trans station??) pokemon rat is great. love this game 10/10
10/10 Can't go to real sewer rave so did this intstead still caught tetanus perfect,
What does fruit do? i cant figure it out but i love the game and dont want to miss out on any features
There are a few characters you can trade it for some collectable items.
I decided to play this game after seeing it in the bundle and was got WAY more happiness out of this than i was ever expecting.
Fellas please don't feed trolls or get into arguments. I don't want my comments section to become a flame war or full of spam. Just let people leave what they want to say and upvote or downvote if you agree/disagree.
This game is very special and made me smile. Thank you so much for sharing this with us all :)
bro imagine the mods this game could have
this was the best game i ever played. 9/10 only because I could not take the possum queen to bed
I absolutely hate the bambi room. thanks.
also this game is wonderful
Bought the game after seeing Vinny play it on youtube, love random games like this. guess I'm a little biased seeing as alot of my online media is full of rats.
Music is an absolute bop aswell
