Humble Bundle is publishing a super adorable cat game called Mineko’s Night Market. The studio developing the game is called Meowza Games. The game is due to release in 2018.
Mineko’s Night Market is the first title from the young, two-person indie studio. The adventure title stars Mineko, a girl who takes on a job as a vendor in a weekly marketplace. The game includes taking on responsibilities ranging from collecting resources, crafting items to sell, participating in local events and befriending customers around town. The game seems similar to Stardew Valley in this respect.
One of the most interesting features of the game is that the setting comes from a real word place that is known to be beloved by cat lovers. Tashirojima is a Japanese island that’s home to more cats than human beings — much like the world of Mineko’s Night Market, which takes place on a cat-worshipping Japanese isle called Mount Fugu. The biggest difference between the two places is that in Mineko’s world, there are still plenty of humans to hang out with but you still get to play with tons of kittens.
The game is heading to Mac and Windows PC sometime next year, and it won’t be exclusive to the Humble Bundle Store.
