WayForward's April Fools' joke: the game 'Cat Girl Without Salad'
WayForward Technologies has posted a fun April Fools' gag on its website and Facebook.
"We can finally spill the beans on the latest WayForward original!" the status update read today. Fans were quick to catch on — and wish it were real.
The developer dubbed the game "Cat Girl Without Salad" and shared mock concept art and a screenshot.
"The game is coming this fall exclusively to Nintendo 3DS, DS, Wii, Wii U, XBLA, PSN, PC, Vita, iOS, and Android," WayForward wrote on its blog.
It apparently combines elements from "several" game genres: "puzzler, platformer, shmup, action, shooter, adventure, strategy, fighting, rhythm, arcade, horror, tactical, RPG, TPS, RTS, and visual novel."
WayForward wrote, "Cat Girl Without Salad! follows the adventures of Kebako — a female space bounty hunter and four-star chef — searching for love and adventure on the intergalactic space seas. Kebako is joined by her insipid squadron of Calamarites on their quest to rid the cosmos of the notoriously-tardy NekoNekoNeko Clan."
