The Cat Quest franchise by The Gentlebros has garnered over 1.3 million paid downloads worldwide, and has generated the three-man studio earnings of over SG$5.2 million!
With the Cat Quest games reaching the top charts in the United States, Japan and Europe, the series has also won multiple awards and even entered the Top Sellers list on the popular PC games platform, Steam.
To celebrate the series’ success, Gentlebros have signed a partnership with popular Singaporean lifestyle and collectibles designer brand, Mighty Jaxx, to bring a series of limited-edition Cat Quest merchandise for fans. This capsule collection will draw inspiration from Cat Quest’s most iconic characters.
Beyond that, a free major update to Cat Quest II was launched on August 8 as a thank you to all their fans. Titled “The Mew World”, this update will add many more hours of gameplay, new abilities and weapons to collect. However, the update will come to the Apple Arcade first.
Mew Game is the meat of the new update; it is a brand new mode that introduces hours of new gameplay. In this mode, players can select up to 8 “meowdifiers” that change the game in drastic ways, making each new playthrough a fresh experience, and one that will no doubt challenge the player.
The developers have also added the ability for player characters to sprint. This happens automatically once you run for more than a few seconds, so players can now cover great distances much faster. Along with that comes the new Royal Art move that lets players do a new, devastating attack that is unique to each weapon type by simply rolling and attacking right after to trigger this new move.
And lastly, this new update also brings added water enemies to the mix. These fearsome monsters will now make your travels across the Pawcific Ocean much more dangerous. Fighting these new foes makes for a great new source of gold or exp.
Cat Quest II is currently available on Apple Arcade, Apple’s game subscription service on the App Store, playable across iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV. It is also available on PC and consoles such as Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One!
