Rock Paper Shotgun
Rat Chaos is the funniest Twine game Iíve ever played, and the most human.

Emily Short's Interactive Fction
...Rat Chaos explores the idea of surface agency as a distraction; the notion that solving the more obvious problems might be a way to shut someone up, to avoid listening to the deeper things they have to say.

A treasure-hunt for content. An award-winning Twine game., February 3, 2016

Rat Chaos's opening is purposely bad. You are in a position of authority over an area, with the option to summon rats or not.

The game is goofy and fun at first. But the 'real' content takes some searching to find. In the end, Rat Chaos has a powerful, visceral message.

It's hard to say too much more about it without spoiling it.

As of Septembet 2015, the link no longer functions, but I found someone on an IF forum willing to share a copy.
