NaNoReNo 2017 Entry
You've just been hired as a part time night shift worker at a local conservatory for bats. The conservatory is equipped with state of the art technology that allows for communication between humans and bats! Your job is to watch over them from midnight to six, and make sure they are given food and water and are played with. If you keep them happy, things just might go well for you! And if not... well, who knows what such creatures of the night might be planning...
B.A.T. is a game about cute bats, a part time worker, and other things that go bump in the night! Inspired in part by Hatoful Boyfriend.

Malina is a kind, hardworking young woman who loves to playfully push people's buttons. She has a habit of pretending to be oblivious to avoid dealing with troublesome situations. (Protagonist; can be given a nickname by the player.)
Jesse (Dinky) - Honduran White Bat
Dinky is so small, even a dust bunny is giant by comparison. Full of a rage that his tiny body cannot possibly hope to express, he occasionally loses his cool and shouts totally non-offensive swears. Can his tiny little heart have a hidden soft spot?
Bernard - Grey-Headed Flying Fox
Bernard is a bit of a crybaby and loyal almost to a fault. He will stick by Dinky's side no matter what. The adoration in his eyes is a little startling, so he keeps them hidden. Showing even a little kindness might be enough to win his affection!
Stanley (Wyre) - Common Vampire Bat
Stanley is a proud bat who's not afraid to tell it like it is. He can be stubborn and hard-headed, but he has a sense of honor above all the others. Be candid and keep him entertained and he just might take an interest in you.
Jean - Desert Long-Eared Bat
Jean is an excitable bat who never fails to keep on top of the gossip. Be crazy and spontaneous and take some chances and he'll certainly swoon!
Slaine (Snail) - Spotted Bat
Slaine really just wants to be left alone. He's not interested in drama and he's perfectly happy to spend his time in solitude, but he's not unwelcome to company. Adhere to your sense of justice and you may earn his respect!
