"I think most would describe Mew-Genics as a cross between The Sims and Pokémon with a sprinkling of Animal Crossing and a dash of Tamagotchi , but at its core the game really isn't like anything we've seen before."
Edmund McMillen on Mew-Genics

Mew-Genics is an upcoming project of Team Meat (Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes). Most gameplay details came from a post describing a single description of a "typical" gameplay session. It has been variously described as "a game about cats. Sorta," and "a Crazy Cat Lady simulator," and involves raising and breeding cats for fun and profit.

McMillen has announced that the game is back in development.


This game contains examples of:

  • Black Comedy: Like with anything from Team Meat, this abounds even in the promotional posts:
    I was arrested by the local animal control shortly after I put Puddle in the cube, probably because of letting Goon run away.. and the whole giving my other cat aids thing… or maybe it was the dead cat in the attic.
  • Procedural Generation: How the cats you breed and care for are generated, providing, according to official numbers, over 25 septillion possibilities for physical appearances alone.


How well does it match the trope?
