The lights are on
During Team Meat's myriad updates for Mew-Genics, we've learned a lot about its assorted characters and personalities. Yesterday, Team Mean revealed there are more side-characters that will appear in the game.
Every day of the week you play Mew-Genics, you will have the opportunity to meet one of these side characters. In Team Meat co-founder Edmund McMillen's latest update, he says you will only know some of these characters from written letters, while some will appear in person making requests, or offering you something.
McMillen also wrote and drew a new comic for this week's update detailing characters Tink and Butch. You can see it by heading here. Finally, McMillen says the reason he hasn't been keeping up with his weekly "Caturday" updates the last few weeks is because he and development partner Tommy Refenes have been hard at work on the game, and Refenes has developed a new way of simulating cat AI, which will be detailed in a future update.
We've learned a lot about Mew-Genics since its original announcement. You can read all of our updates by following links here (trailer), here (details on birthing and breeding cats), here (details on cat disease), here (music from the Mew-Genics soundtrack), here (more music and an FAQ), and here (details on the game's collectible furniture).
Mew-Genics is coming to PC and iOS devices some time this year.

I still have no real clue what the entire point of this game is, but I know that I want it.
Kyle in the quick info on the main screen it says "Team Mean reveals new side-characters that will appear in the game." I think you mean "Team Meat".
Otherwise, this game is looking wildly awesome the more I see!
I'm starting to think Mewgenics is a new type of meta-game. In this game, the player periodically learns new information about an "upcoming game." I'm looking forward to seeing how it ends.
That note isn't creepy at all.
