After a few months of teasing (17 weeks apparently,) the Team Meat blog has finally revealed the full-ish story about curious cat-breeding game Mew-Genics. The post calls it “a hard game to explain,” before settling on “a cross between The Sims and Pokemon.” Except with cats, obviously.
To those reference points, I’d probably add Creatures and maybe Little Computer People (an old one, I know.) Basically, it seems you breed and raise cats. Lots of cats. Upwards of 25,418,658,283,290,000,000,000,000 (and counting) different cat varieties. Then you enter them in cat shows and hope you win. If you don’t, it’s back to the breeding board!
However, you’ll have to be wary of cat AIDS or other conditions like cataplexy (that’s not a joke, some of the cats can have cataplexy and will fall asleep in shows.) It all sounds wonderfully strange and somewhat unhinged. Read more about it in the Team Meat dev blog.
