Mew-Genics: The Cat Lady Sim Game

By on December 2, 2013



The developers behind “Super Meat Boy” recently revealed (and attempted to explain) their newest game, “Mew-Genics.” Edmund McMillen used the above webcomic to explained the game which is simply about “cat genetics and the forced evolution of the most adaptive species on this whole planet.”

In “Mew-Genics,” players mash two cats together in order to create a new kitten. Then you must care for them as well as enter them into battles and pageant-style contests. Team Meat previously referred to Mew-Genics as a “cat lady sim” that blends elements of “The Sims and Pokemon with a sprinkling of Animal Crossing and a dash of Tamagotchi.” It is also freakishly adorable.

According to McMillen, “Mew-Genics” was inspired by the unreleased Nintendo game called Cabbage that was in development by Earthbound creator Shigesato Itoi and Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto for the canceled Nintendo 64DD system. Cabbage was a multiplayer breeding game that was expected to allow players to take their creature on the go with their Game Boy systems.

“Mew-Genics” is in development for Steam, iOS and Android, and will launch in 2014.
