Team Meat's Edmund McMillen recently attempted to explain how the Super Meat Boy
developer's next game, Mew-Genics,
operates. Naturally, McMillen opted to describe the game in webcomic form
, noting that it is about "cat genetics and the forced evolution of the most adaptive species on this whole planet."
The comic illustrates players' ability in the breeding game to mash two cats together in order to create a new kitten, care for them as well as enter them into battles and pageant-style contests. Team Meat previously referred to Mew-Genics
as a "cat lady sim
" that blends elements of "The Sims and Pokemon with a sprinkling of Animal Crossing and a dash of Tamagotchi."
McMillen likened Mew-Genics
to an unreleased Nintendo game called Cabbage
that was in development by Earthbound
creator Shigesato Itoi and Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto for the canceled Nintendo 64DD system. Cabbage
was a multiplayer breeding game that was expected to allow players to take their creature on the go with their Game Boy systems. Mew-Genics
is in development for Steam, iOS and Android, and will launch in 2014.
