Team Meat’s Mew-Genics is a game with 25,418,658,283,290,000,000,000,000 cats


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.

    Even if it didn’t appeal to absolutely every part of my dank and rotten soul, I’d still be buying this. I’ve spent 72 hours – and counting – on The Binding of Isaac, so pretty much anything Edmund McMillen makes will probably wheedle some cash out of me.

    Kudos for the best most random game find ever lol. Sure to appeal with cat lovers I guess and possibly the whole of Japan.
