Kitty Kharacters: Team Meat's Mew-Genics Hints

Cats can't smile ACTUALLY

Four words all but guaranteed to win my attention: “a game about cats.” When said four words are twinned with the knowledge that the game in question comes from the creators of Super Meat Boy and one half of The Binding Of Isaac team, my attention becomes unwavering.

We know precious little about Team Meat’s Mew-Genics other than that it’ll be “randomly generated, strange and involve cats” so even a tiny, kitten-size scrap of detail is enough to cause a flurry of fluffy speculation. Today, that’s two new shots showing in-game characters.

These characters – of which there are five in total – were shown in silhouette in the first shot Team Meat released, so at least we can now put a couple of names and faces to the, uh, shadowy faces now. Those names are Mr Tinkles and Dr Beanie, the former apparently designating himself a “party gurl” and the latter has Krusty the Clown’s hairdo and seems to be a little nervous around cats. I went out with a girl like that once.

What will this cutesy pair be up to? Helping cats? Killing cats? Cruelly gene-splicing cats? Getting turned into horrible mutant cats themselves? I tell you, I don’t know. Stop asking me.

We’ll be given new art and hints every Caturday from now until a full info-splurge at a later date. Which means there’s precious little more I can tell you. So here’s a joke instead.

Q. How do you know when your cat has eaten a duckling?

A. It’s got that down in the mouth look.

I’ll be here all week.
