As many of you might have guessed from the song "Cat Fight" in the Ridiculon video post, Cat fights are a large part of Mew-Genics.

How will these fights go down?
How will the game actually play?
Why have i been using faked graphics for all the cats ive posted in the past 17 weeks of updates?

CAT FIGHT!

This weeks teaser brings you the 1st polished ear full of Ridiculon! The Ballad Of D. Claude!

One of my personal faves on the soundtrack, The Ballad Of D. Claude, sheds light on the life of an alley cat from Boone County. The full track is available on Bandcamp free to check out (with lyrics!) and can be purchased for anything you'd like to pay :)

For those of you who missed it, a few weeks ago we posted the title theme of Mew-Genics here:



Next week is the last teaser we will be posting before we spill the kitty beans on the project, stay tuned!

You don’t know pain til you’ve been D. Claude!

Mew-Genics Teaser week 15, STEAM!

Posted by Edmund on February 2nd, 2013 in Mew-Genics

We announced a few weeks back that Mew-Genics would be released on iPad and other platforms as well. Well one of those other platforms is going to be Steam, obviously!

And now a bit of history on this project.

Mew-Genics started as a game jam game for Ludum Dare 24, with the theme "Evolution". we actually went with another of the suggested possible themes though, "100 Cats". Tommy and i worked on the prototype for 3 days in flash, once the game jam was over we thought the game actually had some odd potential and decided to work on it for another couple weeks to see where we ended up. by week 3 Mew-Genics had taken the form of a monster mashup of many different game genres with an underlying theme we hadnt seen done in games before.. so we decided to officially pause work on the next Super Meat Boy and remake Mew-Genics outside of flash, making it our new full time project.

We are currently about 18 weeks into development, we have a ways to go due to the games features, items, cats, characters, missions, etc. ballooning bigger and bigger as the days pass by, but we are both quite happy with this little monster and think you guys will really dig what we have planned.

we have been tight lipped about the actual content of the game due to the fact that we are in an active and improvised development head space and dont want to promise features/content that might not make the cut later down the road if the game becomes refocused later on. Each update we make is a feature we have tested and know for sure will be in the game... but we know how much of a tease they are and how confused most of you have become by them, so we will only do 2 more Caturday teasers after this then pull back and focus on getting the game done as well as officially announcing what the game actually is and how it plays.

Think of these teasers as our extremely vague public development blog :)

anyway, Tommy and i are starting to discover very odd and awesome in game "happenings" that go beyond what is programmed.. the game is starting to live, and its exciting and disturbing at the same time.

STAY TUNED!

Mew-Genics Teaser week 14, THE MAIL!

Posted by Edmund on January 26th, 2013 in Mew-Genics

The mail in Mew-genics is an exciting thing.. you never know what you might get! maybe it will be an invitation to the next Cat Fight? maybe your children sent you a dollar bill... could be a notice of violation from the county about the smell, or more importantly your next SSI check!

either way, the mail is vital. it keeps you up to date on all what all your friends (and enemies) are up to, gets you into many upcoming contests and even drops some knowledge into that little brain of yours in form of vital cat facts!

Cat Fact #123

Did you know?

A group of cats is called a clowder but a group of kittens is called a potato mob.

Stay informed!

Mew-Genics Teaser week 12

Is your cat in shape? has he taken his pills? has he had a good nights sleep? does he have ADD? what about a few extra legs?

Either way i think you should try your luck in the sewers and join Franks Cat Races, you could find your fortune there! or maybe a few magical poopies!

Mew-Genics Teaser week 11

Have you ever loved something so much that you wanted to bring it into the future so your childrens, children could enjoy it? or how about simply wanting to put something on ice before you get arrested for animal abuse? or how about just needing to freeze a kitten seconds before you off yourself so your future self can look at it on the wall to remember the life you once had?

well guess what? this is all now possible by using the Cryo-Cube 5000! freezing cats / food / neighborhood squirrels has never been so easy!

The future is now!
