Take a cat and rub it on a cat. Then that cat gets all fat. That's one euphemistic way of expressing the basic idea behind feline husbandry. And that's also what's up with Mew-Genics. Or as it's catchily referred to in its new teaser trailer: Mewwww … Mew-Genics! Mew-Genics is an upcoming simulation game from Team Meat. Coming from the independent developer behind the peculiar platformer Super Meat Boy, Mew-Genics is, unsurprisingly, shaping up to be a simulation game unlike any other. As we told you earlier this year, Mew-Genics is touted as "a cross between The Sims and Pokemon with a sprinkling of Animal Crossing and a dash of Tamagotchi." The folks at Team Meat explained:
Mew-Genics revolves around Cats, obviously. We knew tending to these cats in a simulated “cat lady” environment would be the foundation of our design, but the core of what we are trying to do is make a game that feels alive, a game that creates stories as you play where consequences actually mean something…If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. And now, Team Meat has released a new teaser trailer to make the concept of Mew-Genics a bit clearer … or even stranger. You can check out the video above. Warning: the video may contain kitties rubbing bodies in a rather suggestive manner. Featuring foot-tapping music by Ridiculon, the video actually shows the intro cut scene for Mew-Genics. No exact release date has been announced for Mew-Genics. But it's set to be launched on iOS and Steam in 2014, precluding the iOS version of Super Meat Boy.
