Cat Lady Sim

Mew-Genics trailer shows the catastrophic consequences of cat breeding

It's been a while since anyone has tried to educate me about the often gross mechanisms of nature; but even with my limited biological knowledge, I'm pretty sure cats don't work in the way described by this intro cut-scene for Team Meat's Mew-Genics. Released for the Penny Arcade Expo this last weekend, it shows an undeniably catchy spin on genetics, questionable interpretation aside.


Mew aren't going to believe this: Team Meat's cat game finally revealed

After 17 weeks of teasing cat-related bits and bobs on the Team Meat blog, Super Meat Boy developers McMillen and Refenes (if they ever give up this game development lark, they should totally consider forming a hardboiled detective duo) have finally revealed what Mew-Genics is all about. It turns out it's, well, a "Cat Lady Sim", which is not quite what I was expecting. But that doesn't mean I'm not glad that it exists.
