Catlateral Damage is a free game about being a cat who is also a jerk

Phil Savage at

That headline is misleading, of course. All cats are jerks. Even that one you really like. Especially that one you really like. Still, it's hard to blame the little fluffy bundles of destruction. I mean, if you went through your entire life with deadly weapons attached to your hands, you'd probably be a bit psychotic too. Just look at every FPS protagonist throughout the history of games.

All of which is to say that a cat is a pretty natural character to take the lead role in an FPS. Catlateral Damage was originally created as part of the 7DFPS gamejam - a competition in which entrants have a week to make a first-person shooter. The original build, while a fun game about knocking things off shelves, was relatively basic - a forgiveable consequence of its rapid development. Now, though, it's being expanded, with a new update to try, and a Steam Greenlight campaign to vote on.


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

Tom Sykes at

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.

Meow's about a bit of Team Meat news to perk up your Monday afternoon? The Super Meat Boy/Binding of Isaac devs have revealed two new images of their randomly generated cat game Mew-Genics - and they threaten to reveal more every...'Caturday'...until we meet their demands. Said demands include a bundle of wool, a scrunched up ball of tin foil, and all the world's herring. That or it's a #screenshotsaturday type deal and they were going to post them online anyway.


Next Team Meat game teased: it's the adorably horrible Mew-Genics

In an announcement that seems to have broken their site, Team Meat have revealed their next project: a randomly generated game about cats called, brilliantly/awfully, Mew-Genics. Random generation + cats - why did no one think of this before?
