Cattails: October Update & Beta Launch!
(...Yeah, we know it's technically still September. But it's close enough so we'll all just have to deal with it. ;P )
Welcome to the Cattails October Update! We've got a lot of exciting news to share with you all, including news about the beta, which just launched this morning!
The Cattails beta is now available and all keys have been sent out to our beta backers! If you were a "Burmese Beta" backer, check your email or Kickstarter account inbox for your keys.
If you were an Abyssinian Alpha backer (or higher), you should have also received an email with a key for the deluxe content and OST. If you redeem that key, you'll be granted a free deluxe cat color (the Orange Bengal) and get a copy of the full Cattails soundtrack on Steam.
This is a massive content update for Cattails. Here's just a few of the neat new features included with the beta:
- Join or befriend two new colonies!
- Romance & marry one of nine eligible cats!
- Explore the entire world of Cattails, including the new Highland and Swamp regions
- Upgrade your den!
- Participate in four new seasonal festivals!
- Change the difficulty level if the game is too hard or easy for your tastes
- Collect mysterious "Power Paws" all throughout the world!
- ...and more!
If you've already been playing the alpha, your copy of Cattails should update automatically on Steam. If it doesn't, try restarting Steam. All alpha save files are compatible with the beta so you can smoothly dive back into the world of Cattails!
