January Update: New Screenshots, Stats, & More!
Welcome to the Cattails January Update!
We can hardly believe it's already been a month and a half since Cattails went out into the world. It's crazy to see just how many people have been enjoying our game since it went live in early December! To all those who have left comments, reviews, and suggestions for the game, we wanted to say a special thank you for making our community the incredible place it is today.
Early last week, we hit an important milestone... A staggering 10,000+ copies have been sold! That's unbelievable!! <3
It's clear to us that you guys are as passionate about our project as we are. We can't say thank you enough to all of you for believing in us and cheering us on as we continue to make Cattails an even better game.
As promised, work is progressing on the next big update for the game, which centers around the new ability to create your own colony. A quick spoiler-free word of advice: if you'd like to make your own colony someday, you'll need to complete the main story first.
We'd like to share a few screenshots of our progress on the update, but it should be mentioned that you should stop reading here if you want to go into it blind when it launches!
Spoilers Ahead!! You've been warned. ;)
Something that's been super fun to work on and super fun to play with is the customization system. In the new update, we're adding 14 new colors for you to collect and use! We're most excited about seeing the all-new possible kitten combinations that will result from the broadened color pool.
To start your journey as a colony leader, you'll have to talk to the Forest Guardian in the Sacred Temple Ruins...
You'll be granted a special item that will allow you to claim a plot of land as your own. Coco will also be sent with you to help you learn the ropes of the new system.
You'll be able to claim any area that is: 1. on the world map, 2. an exterior location, and 3. at least 1 tile away from any "locked" areas. That's more than 60 unique locations to choose as your capitol!
While we don't have an exact date to share with you just yet, we are aiming for a March release for this update. Stay tuned, we'll keep you updated!
