Team Meat has finally given us some concrete information about their mad-science experiment Mew-Genics. Team Meat's Edmund McMillen took to the official Team Meat blog to discuss the game and give everyone a little more detail about what to expect from this odd title. Cat-tastic or a feline fiasco? Click through to find out.
Here's what McMillen had to say on the official Team Meat blog about where the ideas for Mew-Genics came from:
...most would describe Mew-Genics as a cross between The Sims and Pokemon with a sprinkling ofAnimal Crossing and a dash of Tamagotchi, but at its core the game really isn't like anything we've seen before.
Mew-Genics revolves around Cats, obviously. We knew tending to these cats in a simulated "cat lady" environment would be the foundation of our design, but the core of what we are trying to do is make a game that feels alive, a game that creates stories as you play where consequences actually mean something...
On the Team Meat blog, McMillen also goes on to detail how how the gameplay will work, in addition to telling some personal stories about how one of his cats developed a fear of food, associating it with an attack.
Mew-Genics still sounds like a wacky title that we're interested to see. But it's likely that we'll have to wait a bit, as Team Meat can afford to take their time. No firm date has been set yet.
