Edmund McMillen describes Mew-Genics as a 'cat lady' game


Indie developer extraordinaire Edmund McMillen has revealed some beefy info on Team Meat's upcoming project Mew-Genics. According to the designer, the game can be best described as a "cat lady" simulator. Well, kind of. It's actually more than that, but if you were to strip a description of the game down to its barest form, that would be an appropriate way to do so.

After reading McMillen's post, it certainly seems like raising cats and watching them do cat stuff is a big part of the experience. There's a lot more to it than that, though -- at least that's what it seems like after reading a short narrative by the developer.

In this brief tale, the dev talks about grooming and breeding cats for a pageant; locking up a pregnant female cat in an attic; giving a poor little feline AIDS; and something about a cryo-cube. Yup, put all that together with McMillen's previous statement that Mew-Genics is "a cross between The Sims and Pokemon with a sprinkling of Animal Crossing and a dash of Tamagotchi," and you've got quite the intriguing indie title.

Currently, Mew-Genics doesn't have an exact launch date, but we do know that the game is headed to PC, iOS, Android, and possibly other platforms.
