Taiwan-based indie developer 751 Games has officially launched Cat Museum, its bizarre puzzle adventure that brings horrific elements and gorgeous hand-drawn visuals together in a whimsical mobile game. Now available on iOS, Android and Steam, the game lets players embark on an odd journey through a fantastical world that’s freaky and intriguing at the same time, all wrapped up nicely into a 2D side-scroller.
Cat Museum features an illustration-style artwork and an odd little tale where players will have to explore a strange museum filled with equally strange cats. These furry felines aren’t the only ones in the museum, though – all kinds of weird monstrosities lurk in the shadows, and players will have to solve the puzzles in the game to get through in one piece.
Of course, as players delve deeper into the museum – encountering circus performers with dark backstories along the way – they will also discover more about themselves and their own past trauma.
751 Games’ debut title Life Gallery bagged the Taiwan Google Play Best Game of 2020 Award as well as the Google Play Best Indie Game of 2020 Award, so it’s safe to say that Cat Museum will likely boast the same high-quality production value. What’s even more interesting here is that the studio actually integrated real stories, people, and cats from the community into the title as well.
If you’re keen on giving the game a go, Cat Museum is available to download on the Google Play Store for Android devices and the iOS App Store. It’s a premium title that costs $2.99 or your local equivalent. You can also join the community of followers on Facebook to stay updated on all the latest developments.
