Anybody that knows me even a little bit knows that I love me some cats. Sure, the Internet has kind of made the whole cat thing feel played out the last few years, but even given that do you ever NOT watch those cat videos your friends are always posting? Of course you watch them. Now, cats are combining with perhaps my favorite gaming genre, the platformer, in an upcoming iOS game called Felis. In Felis, the goal is pretty simple: Rescue cats from various types of traps and make it to the end of the level with them alive and in tow, all while fending off the crazy monsters who are trying to stop you. Ah, rescuing cats, humanity’s most noble endeavor. Check out the trailer.
Surprisingly, or perhaps not in the world of mobile, Felis is the two-year project of a single developer, which makes the really luscious graphics and sharp character design all the more impressive. The video for Felis reminds me of a mixture of Leo’s Fortune ($4.99) with its dream-like fuzzy edges and lighting, but starring a male version of the punk Giana Sister from Giana Sisters ($1.99). Basically it looks awesome!
According to the developer’s post in our forums, Felis has around a couple of months left of work before it’s finished, so not too long to wait now. There’s even more screens and info in that forum thread so be sure to check it out and we’ll let you know when Felis gets a release date.
