    I love cats. I also enjoy both mystery and adventure games. In the upcoming Peace Island, we get an alluring combination of all of these things. Currently in development by Eric Blumrich and a small team of experienced devs (known for games like Prune and Grand Theft Auto V), this game is already gathering attention online.

    About Peace Island:

    You’ll play as cats! Starting out, you’ll be playing as the cat named Elizabeth. The day before, she was was coaxed into her pet taxi and dreading a trip to the veterinarian. She never sees the vet, though, instead falling asleep. When she awakes the next day, her human is nowhere to be found and the door is open.

    Throughout the game, you will meet 8 other cats. You’ll need to gain the trust of these cats and eventually gain their friendship. At different points, you will control each of the different cats. Each one has unique strengths, weaknesses, and roles.

    The world of Peace Island – outside from being Peace Island – is an open-world based on real-life Maine. Inside the island are 4 defined communities. These are Peace City Landing, Greenwood Farms, Ellison Heights, and LaFlamme Fishworks. These are settlements, farmlands, coastlines, woodlands, and more!

    The story of the game is that the humans have all gone missing. The mystery is plentiful. There are an invasive species on the islands, artifacts and documents left behind, and 200 years worth of alternate history to unravel. Not only do you have to figure out what happened to the humans, you have to use the divergent storylines to decide if they are worth bringing back.

    Game Features:

    • Cooperate – You’ll have to gain the trust and build friendships with the other cats. You’re going to need them!
    • Discover – It’s up to you to find and piece together all the evidence.
    • Explore – The open-world is huge and scattered with lots of details.
    • Infiltrate – To solve the mystery, you’re going to have to get inside the buildings. It may take more skill to find a way into some of them.

    Peace Island is currently in development for PC, Mac, and Oculus VR. There is no set release date, yet, but a beta should be coming soon. You can check out more and support the game on Patreon. You can also see daily screenshots on Twitter.

    Don’t worry – I have your fill of cat games! Take a look at The Good Life, Another Sight, and Calico – just to get started. I also have mystery game suggestions – like the newest iteration of Layton’s Mystery Journey and the kooky Lord Winklebottom Investigates.

    My list of 9 games for cat lovers wasn’t complete without Cattails, based on popular request I have taken another close look at Cattails a feline-themed simulation RPG game available on Steam and Nintendo Switch.

    Developed and published by Falcon Entertainment for PC, Mac and Linux on December 1st of 2017, the game has garnered very ‘paws-itive’ feedback since its release. Through the eyes of a cat, Cattails allows players to hunt for food, interact with other cats, gather herbs and explore an expansive world.

    Kotaku have said that “Cattails looks like Stardew Valley, except cats.” and IGN have said that Cattails is “an adorably silly game, but one that’s also a lot of fun.” Stardew Valley is arguably one of the most popular and beloved indie games among fans of the genre. Mixing the lovely farming game with the cuteness of cats just sounds like a lot of fun to me!

    Cat Activities and Open World Exploration


    In Cattails you will join one of three unique cat colonies and become friends or frenemies with its residents. Of course there are also cat like activities such as hunting mice and squirrels that will take you on a journey through the large open world.

    While adventuring you can also find love in another cat… and get married…. to another cat. If that doesn’t sound like the perfect cat-tastic mix between Stardew Valley and a traditional Harvest Moon game – then I don’t know!

    Seasons and Weather Changes


    The open world is full of treasures and things to do. While out exploring you can gather herbs and berries that you can give to your friends. They say small gifts keep a friendship alive! You will also stumble across all different areas like the woodlands, swamps and even beaches.

    Seasons and weather can also change at all times, making for an even more engaging and atmospheric experience. Each seasons like you may have guessed, feature festivals that you can participate in if you wish.

    Cattails is now out on Steam and Nintendo Switch and since I booted up the game again I have only ever put it down to share my experience with you. Cattails is a wonderful game for any cat lover or anyone who enjoys cute, relaxed gaming!

    In other cat related news, Calico: Magical Girls Running Cat Café is an Animal Crossing and Cat game hybrid that is just too adorable to pass on!

    STRAY is an upcoming game that combines cyberpunk/cybercities, adventure, mystery-solving, and cats. The developers of STRAY, BlueTwelve Studio, are a small team from the south of France. Supposedly, they are “mostly made of cats and a handful of humans..”. Publishing STRAY is AnnaPurna Interactive, who also published the highly regarded ‘What Remains Of Edith Finch‘.

    The Origins Of STRAY:

    STRAY originally started off as a concept called HK_Project. The premise being that players explored a strange/modern city as a stray cat. The few images and gifs that were floating about the internet became pretty popular and piqued the interest of many. A few years on, after many had forgot about HK_Project due to radio silence, the game made a surprising reappearance. On June the 11th 2020, an official announcement confirmed that the game, now entitled STRAY, will definitely be released. Even more excitingly, the game seems quite close to completion. The cyberpunk aesthetic, and awesome graphics of STRAY can be seen in the awesome trailer below:

    STRAY’s Gameplay & Plot:

    The game’s official website says: “Stray is a third-person cat adventure game set amidst the detailed neon-lit alleys of a decaying cybercity and the murky environments of its seedy underbelly.” As a lost and alone cat, players must “Roam surroundings high and low, defend against unforeseen threats and solve the mysteries of this unwelcoming place inhabited by nothing but unassuming droids and dangerous creatures.”

    With no humans about, it’s clear that their are mysteries to unravel whilst you try to escape this weird cybercity.

    Seeing as you are a feline after all, the game lets you ‘cat’ in some fun and playful ways. With danger present, you must obviously be stealthy and nimble. However, you can be silly and mischeivous whilst exploring the strange world too.

    Whilst exploring, you will befriend a small flying drone, called B12. Between you and your new companion, you attempt to find a way out.

    STRAY’s Platforms, Release date, & Price(s)

    The masterminds behind the game are aiming for a 2021 release. The game will definitely release on PC via Steam, as well as on PlayStation 5. It hasn’t been confirmed whether the game will be backward compatable with consoles such as the PS4. However, as the announcement is very recent, more information regarding gameplay, compatability, pricing, etc, is likely to emerge in the future. So make sure to stay tuned!

    If STRAY piques your interest, why not check out a Street Cat’s Tale here?

    Developed by Peachy Keen Games and published by Whitethorn Digital. Calico is a magical, relaxed and family-friendly simulation game where players are given an opportunity to run their very own cat cafe.

    The game is expected to be released on Steam at some point during Summer 2020. The game will most likely release on the following platforms shortly afterwards:

    • Nintendo Switch
    • PlayStation 4
    • Xbox One
    • macOS
    • Macintosh operating systems

    About Calico

    Calico came about due to the game developer’s obsession with cats, magical girls and fluffy animals. However, wanting to create a game that would appeal to everyone, she also included creatures such as lizards, birds, deer, raccoons, dogs, turtles, red pandas, foxes, etc.

    She then shares about how she wanted to publish a game that would make players feel ‘soft, happy, cuddly and cozy’. If that wasn’t wholesome enough, she has said in an interview that she just wanted to create a game where the only goal is to have the best time possble.

    However, simply running the cat cafe is not the only things that players can do. The game also incorporates enjoyable aspects from other popular gaming franchises such as Animal Crossing. Similarities between Calico and Animal Crossing include the simulation aspects of both games, and the ability to place furnitire and decorations in your buildings. A perk about Calico however, is that the animals will not leave, the shop never closes, and crops never die.

    Calico Key Features

    • As all animals are interactive, players can explore the village to find cats and other animals, including raccoons, deer, dogs, turtles, red pandas, foxes, lizards, etc. The animals can be befriended, petted and played with
    • Players can ride on giant cats ( as you do? ?)
    • Run your café by filling it with animals, furniture and yummy café eats!
    • Use magic potions to change your animals and environment
    • Meet magical girls, witches and other townspeople who you can help and befriend

    According to the Steam Website, Calico won’t playable until at least Summer 2020. However, there’s no need to be disappointed, as you can play these cat-themed games in the meantime to tide you over 🙂

    For more updates on how the game is progressing, check their Twitter here.

    As many of you may have gathered by now, I’m a bit of a feline fanatic. Having procured a Switch console this year, I have been meaning to make a cat-themed Switch game listicle for a while. Having finally gotten around to it, here you have it; Nine Nintendo Switch Games For Cat Lovers. (Nine because nine lives)


    This project started with a love for magical girls, cats, and a want to create a game that’s light, pink, cute, fluffy, and feminine. It also incorporates everything that’s enjoyable from a simulation game like Animal Crossing (furniture, decorations) but the animals will not leave/die, the shop will never close and the crops will not rot. The objective of the game is to make the town’s cat café active and full of cuddly creatures again such as cats, deer, raccoons, dogs, turtles, red pandas, foxes and more! For more Calico info head over here.

    Cat Quest

    Cat Quest is an open world, action adventure RPG set in a world of cats, developed by The Gentlebros. The Cat Quest page on the Nintendo website (which is full of cat puns) explains how your player’s sister is kidnapped and you therefore embark on a journey to save her from the evil Drakoth. Available for only £9.99 on the Nintendo eShop, Cat Quest for Switch is a purr-chase your bank account won’t hate you for!

    Cat Quest II

    Cat Quest II is an upcoming open world RPG where you play as both a cat and a dog (hisss!). Explore an extensive world filled with monsters, dungeons and quests as you restore peace to your kingdoms in a time of war. This forthcoming feline follow-up will be released on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Android, iOS, and Windows.


    Snacko is a farming simulation game developed by an indie studio called bluecurse, based in Vancover, BC, Canada. The founders, husband and wife Jordan and Erisa, wanted to create a world “where cats rule the land” and so the project began in 2018. Snacko is expected to release sometime in the year 2021 for PC and Nintendo Switch. Get some more news on this cat-tactic game!


    In BlobCat you are tasked with the job of protecting the DiceMice from the naive BlobCats. With more than 90 different levels spanning over 6 worlds, Place arrows and guide the Dicemice to the Micehole! With local and online multiplayer, you and up to 3 other players can attempt to outsmart each other and send the BlobCats a-calling. The game costs a reasonable £8.99 to download from the Nintendo eShop.

    Night In The Woods

    Night in the Woods is an autumnal themed indie adventure game. Highly relatable to many, the game shows the crumbling former mining town of Possum Springs. After the protagonist, Mae Borowski drops out of college and returns to her hometown, she finds things as gloomy and hopeless as ever. But this time there’s something more. Strange and eery occurrences are happening. And there’s something in the woods. This charming game with beautiful music can be purchased for only £17.09 on the Switch eShop.

    I and Me

    I and Me is a platform puzzle game developed by Chinese studio Wish Fang and published by Ratalaika Games. It was released for Nintendo Switch in Japan and PAL regions on July 6, 2017 and in North America on July 13, 2017. Controlling two cats simultaneously, the objective of the game is to get them both safely to the end of each level. Whilst initially fairly easy, having two characters perform exactly the same action makes it increasingly more difficult to complete the game’s 92 levels. With a soothing soundtrack and four season-themed chapters, the game is pretty affordable at £8.99

    Mineko’s Night Market (upcoming)

    Mineko’s Night Market is a cute cat-themed upcoming game for PC, Mac and Switch by Meowza games. You play as Mineko, a girl who has just moved to a superstitious island overrun with cats. The aim of the game is to find materials, craft items and sell them at the Night Market. You can befriend villagers, fish, undertake quests, play mini-games, plus more! Whilst it was initially hoped that the game would be released in late 2018, its release has now been pushed back until 2020.

    Little Friends: Dogs & Cats

    Little Friends: Dogs & Cats is a pet simulation game for Nintendo Switch. The Nintendogs-esque game is set to be released in Japan on 6th December. The game allows players to reside and play with cats and dogs with “lifelike models, textures, expressions, and animations.”

    Spacecats with Lasers

    Spacecats with Lasers is a cat-themed casual combat game. Help your Spacecat eliminate the Evil Space Rats and defeat the Pug King in this wild wave-shooter game. With plenty of perks and power-ups, plus the ability to customise your cat with items unlocked on your journey, you can have both a fashionable and fierce feline fighter. Whether you prefer a calmer cat caper, or want a “nerve-wracking bullet hell”, the game’s different difficulty options have you covered.

    After going through all of these, I realized there are eleven, looks like this cat found some extra lives. 😀

    A bit of R&R for these super-busy devs!

    In a recent tweet from @MinekosMarket, it has been revealed that production of Mineko’s Night Market will be slowed due to some near cat-astrophic health concerns. That might be a bit exaggerated on our part, but maybe not! The creation of such a beautiful and whimsical game is sure to be a fur-midable endeavor.

    While it was mentioned that this is more of a slowing than a halt, un-fur-tinately, it doesn’t appear that a new release date is as soon as we might hope. We here at myPotatoGames know the importance of peace and pace, however, and fully support the Mineko team in taking all the time they need.

    If hiss-tory has taught us anything, it’s that slow and steady wins the race. Of course, all new updates will still be mew-sic to our ears, but all good things come in time! We would like to say thank you furry much to the Mineko’s Night Market team for all the hard work on this pur-fectly paw-some title. We wish you all the best going fur-ward!

    For more information about Mineko’s Night Market, feel free to check myPotatoGames coverage of this lovely title! For up-to-date information, be sure to follow @MinekosMarket on Twitter!
