From the introduction:
In this game you play the animals getting their revenge. But this is not revenge writ large, not Revenge with a capital R. We animals are small, subtle, and clever and so too is our revenge. We will learn the ways of the humans and use this knowledge to bring them low.
This game is about the secret war waged by animals to sabotage the human hegemony.
During development this game was titled Softest Death, Name of Game Goes Here, and Fetch This!.
