Following months of teasers, snippets, tunes and trailers, Team Meat have finally unveiled Mew-Genics, a cross between The Sims and Pokemon with a sprinkling of Animal Crossing and a dash of Tamagotchi “but at its core the game really isn’t like anything we’ve seen before.”
“I could write a book on the design of Mew-genics, it’s by far the most complex game I’ve ever worked on and it’s definitely pushing us both on many levels, but I think the best way to describe how Mew-Genics plays is with a little story”.McMillen goes on to describe his trials and tribulations with a cat named Puddle. While attempting to breed Puddle, he ends up with one dead cat in the attic and two narcoleptic kittens. Puddle contracts feline aids, and McMillen places her in the Cryo-cube in hopes of finding a future cure, just before he’s arrested by local animal control.
Mew-Genics is currently in alpha but set to release on Steam, iOS and Android during 2013.
