What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We know that people want to make tea for cats as much as we do, so we want to be transparent about the challenges in building a studio and making a game on a part-time budget. We felt that Early Access was the best solution to support the studio and our values while working together with the players to create the best version of the game possible.

If you’ve been with us since the beginning or you’re just discovering us now, thank you-- not only for supporting and trusting us, but for joining us on our development journey!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to be in Early Access for roughly 6 months post-launch with planned regular patches, bug fixes, and content updates. The full release of the game is planned for early 2024.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“While we work to address bugs and issues, we’re also continuing to work on several planned content and quality-of-life updates to expand the scope of the game and improve player experience. Check out our social media pages (@kittencupstudio) or our community discord to see our current roadmap of new features and content!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The following features are available:

  • Story and Freeplay mode
  • Make tea for yourself, customers, and friends
  • 75 Recipes to discover
  • 100+ Ingredients
  • 4 Tea-making styles
  • 11 unique residents
  • 7 buildings and 4 shops
  • 8 Decor Sets to customize your room
  • 3 Unique Tea Sets and 20+ Teaware
  • Tons of dialogue and friendship cutscenes

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We can’t guarantee that the game will be priced the same after Early Access, but we want to make sure that our game is priced fairly. It is important to us that those who support us during Early Access feel that their involvement in our game’s development was worthwhile.

We hope that if you’ve purchased our game in Early Access, that means that you’re excited to play our game and understand that it is still under development. If you’re looking for a more fully polished experience, we understand if you want to wait until the game’s full release in 2024, and we look forward to seeing you then!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“There are lots of ways we’d like to invite the community to get involved as we continue development! You can follow our Early Access roadmap across our social media posts (@kittencupstudio), through our Steam announcements and discussion boards, or in our community Discord. There’s also the in-game bug reporter, which you can access by pressing F2 or hovering over the top right side of the screen.”

About This Game

As the newest resident and teahouse owner in town, you’ll learn everything there is to tea.
Learn new rituals and tea-making styles to make an endless combination of recipes. Build relationships with the townsfolk, and visit their teahouses to purchase exclusive teaware and ingredients.

There are over 10 unique characters in town for you to get to know, with 7 distinct teahouses to visit, and endless tea combinations to try! Make tea in a number of different styles and teaware, and choose what to serve the townsfolk and customers (but don't forget, they all have their own likes and dislikes!).

Starting a new life in an old teahouse can come with its own challenges, but it's nothing a bit of fresh paint, hard work, and a few cups of tea can't fix! Upgrade and customize your teahouse with your own choice of decor, and unlock new items from the townsfolk to help in your tea-making endeavors.

Having tea together is more than just a drink, it's a chance to get to spend time together-- you'll learn what tea means to others through various rituals, ceremonies, and one-on-one conversations.
