Description

Become a cat! Cattails is a unique simulation RPG with light survival elements. In Cattails, you play as a feral cat that roams an expansive open forest. Hunt for food, fight cats from other colonies, and become friends (or enemies!) with your neighbors. Romance one of nine eligible cats, raise a family of cute kittens, and train them by taking them with you on your adventures! Or, delve into dark caverns to find treasures. Just make sure you always have some food on hand in case you get hungry. In Cattails, you are free to live the life of a cat however you want to.

History

Cattails humbly began in May 2016 as a hobby project. At the time, lead developer Tyler Thompson worked full time doing web development and began to tinker around with the initial engine for Cattails in his free time. Over the course of the next six months, he continued to develop and flesh out his ideas until a prototype of Cattails was ready to show to the world. In April 2017, the Cattails Kickstarter campaign raised nearly $40,000 USD to fund development of this ambitious project. Cattails releases on December 1, 2017 on Steam.
