One more time: “Mew-Genics will feature over 12,207,031,250,000,000,000,000 cats”.

That’s a lot of cats.

I like cats, I really do, but even I think that12,207,031,250,000,000,000,000 might border on a few too many. I mean where would you keep them for a start?

But that’s how many cats are on offer in Team Meat’s upcoming game Mew-Genics. And that’s only a base number. According to Ed McMillen’s blog post, “technically that number only applies to how the cat looks, if you include its personality variables that number multiplies by A LOT”.

We still don’t know how Mew-Genics will play, Team Meat have only been releasing tiny nibbles of news each week till they’re ready for more of a splash of details.

Though this latest nugget, the sheer vast amount of cat possibilities, gives the strong impression that cats may not survive for an entirely long time.

McMillen throws out another intriguingtitbit”basically you’ll never get the same cat twice, unless you clone them, and even then depending on their childhood they still wont act the same…”. So it would seem there’s going to be a nit of a nature versus nurture dynamic going on under the surface.

In a more recent post spotted by Polygon,Team Meat also shared some of the cat-themed music for the game:

McMillen writes “we really splurged with the soundtrack for Mew-genics, the game will feature a full album of over 20 studio recorded songs, with more than half of them with lyrics! we really wanted to make the games music feature extended themes of the game or small stories within each song, kind of how Katamari did it in a way, except all our songs are about cats!

“The Mew-genics album is being written and composed by Matthias Bossi and Jon Evans. a few of you will know Matthias as the narrator voice in The Binding of Isaac, others might know him from the band Sleepy Time Gorilla Museum”
