Initial ReleaseNovember 5 2022
GameSly 2: Band of Thieves
VersionNTSC (US)

Run away from the Scary Rat in this (cursed) custom game mode for the Sly 2 NTSC Retail build.


Spoiler: You can't run away. He will haunt you forever!

To begin, load Ep1 hub and exit the safehouse as Sly. Scary Rat will start to haunt you after 4 seconds. Then, for every 15-18 seconds, he will try to teleport to the player. This event will be indicated when Sly's gadget meter is decreasing rapidly and the screen is about to fade to black.

Background story

The main goal was to re-create SCP-173 and SCP-106 in the game. SCP-173 should have been a T-Pose boar guard, that would only move when the camera would not face him (by playing with the guard's AI, you can stop them on demand). I had an epic idea for the blinker mechanic for 173, but it was too much for the limited time I had. I guess that's the fun of mod jams! SCP-106 should have been a completely dark, slow-walking rat, that could pass through walls and would always follow you no matter what. Remains of an early version of the blinker mechanic from 173 is still present: I ended up using it for the indication of when the Rat is about to teleport.
