Fan of roguelites? Well good news, as soon you can get your paws on another one. Weird cat-collecting roguelite Cat Lady release date was announced and will be entering Early Access on October 17th.
Like most roguelites, you’ll be running through a randomly generated dungeon and fighting difficult monsters and bosses, dying a lot and restarting along the way. However, unlike other roguelites, you won’t be doing that fighting directly. Instead, Cat Lady, has you collecting cats that will do the fighting for you. Do you want a cat that can blow kisses to damage enemies? What about a wizard cat that shoots fireballs? Maybe you just need a punchy cat? All these and more are shown off in the trailer below.
Of course, you have a goal in all of this dungeon diving and catfighting. You play as Ally Marie, a girl who’s visiting her grandmother, who is actually the crazy cat lady. Unfortunately, when she gets grandmanapped by some demons, Ally needs to team up with her many many pet cats and save her. The further you go, the more of your grandmother’s cats you find, giving you access to more abilities. In addition to the gameplay, Cat Lady also features a soundtrack by both Jim Guthrie and J.J. Ipsen, who have both worked on plenty of indie games before.
Cat Lady is developed by Rose City Games and published by VIZ Media, both of whom were also behind match-3 action game mash-up The World Next Door. The Cat Lady release date is set for October 17th, when it will be entering Early Access on Steam. There is currently no release date for the full game but you can add it to your wishlist on Steam.
