The lights are on
Team Meat has finally dished out some details about its upcoming indie game Mew-Genics, which sounds like a cross between The Sims, Pokemon, and Animal Crossing.
Team Meat has been teasing Mew-Genics for weeks now, but it hasn't been clear about what the game is really about. However, in a recent blog post, Team Meat described Mew-Genics as a "cross between The Sims and Pokemon with a sprinkling of Animal Crossing and a dash of Tamagotchi."
Team Meat went on to explain that Mew-Genics is a game about taking care of a household of cats. Supposedly it is the most complex game the team has created so far. The blog describes a gameplay scenario where the player tries to mate two cats, but one of the cats gets attacked while eating and subsequently associates food with pain and then starves to death. A stray cat finally mates with one of the cats, but ends up passing on a form of Cat Aids to the other cat, so the female is frozen in cryostasis in hopes that a future world will be able to cure her. Meanwhile the player is left to deal with two narcoleptic kittens.
The post does an great job of teasing Mew-Genics's unique sim experience, but here's one more fun fact, according to Team Meat the, "Current number of cats in Mew-Genics is....25418658283290000000000000 (and growing)"
That's one crazy cat lady!

What a twist!
Interesting...the number is close to the amount of guns Borderlands 2
Y'know... I'm sure a lot of people are happy just due to the bizarre factor, and maybe to an extent that's an important niche to be filled. If someone had told my dad that an Italian plumber jumping on turtles, growing when he grabbed a mushroom and throwing fire after stepping on a flower, he'd probably have told them they were nuts too. This could very well be a great prospect, but for now, for me, its just a little... Out there. At least for the massive build they tried to give it. But thats just me!
Cat AIDS? I'm sold!
I think I will get this. Sounds really funny.
I hope the cats can sh** on each others food! XD
LOL Cat AIDS! I am so getting this!
I want this now.
Please give us a release date :(
