Mew-genics to make playable debut at PAX Prime
Team Meat’s crazy cat lady sim will be playable at PAX Prime in Seattle in August.
The first playable build of Mew-genics will be available at the show, a Team Meat blog post promised.
As well as the chance to take a look at my personal most anticipated game of 2013, PAX Prime attendees will also be able to pick up the official Mew-genics comic.
The 28-page, black and white affair is “packed to the brim with funformation”, apparently.
Team Meat is in crunch to get the build ready for PAX but has promised an update on the sim’s progress soon.
Mew-genics has been described as something like Pokémon combined with The Sims. It has players collecting, breeding, and caring for cats, which can then be entered in cat shows, cat fights, cat races and more. It sounds amazing – quite literally, thanks to a soundtrack from Ridiculon – and is headed to PC and iPad at the very least. It has gazillions of cats.
PAX Prime, Penny Arcade’s primary gaming expo, runs August 30 through September 2.
