Find, fight and marry other cats in Cattails: Wildwood Story, coming to Switch in 2024
Way back in 2018, before Animal Crossing: New Horizons, before the pandemic, and before the Nintendo eShop was cluttered with cat games, there was Cattails: A relaxing feline RPG that combined the territorial nature of man’s second best friend with survival living -Siminess of games like Stardew Valley. We gave it an 8/10 at the time, praising its “fun mechanics, happy writing, and beautiful soundtrack” as the perfect way to while away the hours leading up to Animal Crossing.
Good Mews for Cat Fans: Cattails is getting a standalone sequel called Cattails: Wildwood Story, and it’s coming to Switch too! The game is currently launching, but whether you support it or not, it has already surpassed its original goal of $30,000 and is on track to $250,000 as of this writing.
Here is part of the description from the Kickstarter page:
Experience life as a cat in a strange wilderness. Roam through dense forests, murky swamps, rocky highlands, and sandy beaches in search of rare herbs and delicious loot. Build and customize your colony’s base of operations and attract new residents to build a thriving community. Meet a diverse group of unique cats and bring gifts from your travels to make friends!
Cattails: Wildwood Story is a single player game and draws inspiration from life sims (Harvest Moon, Animal Crossing), RPGs (Rune Factory) and dating sims to create a “unique cat experience”, including many NPCs (obviously non-playable cats ) with whom to befriend, court, and settle down.
Unlike your usual life sims, Cattails also has special feline mechanics – sneaking, hunting, and even the ability to not catch any living beings during hibernation season. You can even take another cat hunt with you!
