What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Cat Herders is in an advanced and very playable state, but we're calling it early access because we want to keep improving it! We're working towards more levels and a more balanced experience, so feedback is absolutely welcome.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect to be in early access for a few more months as we flesh out the project.”

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

“Our main plans for the full release are more levels in more environments, more items, and online leaderboards.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently Cat Herders has four varied levels each presenting a unique challenge. Each level can be played locally by 1-4 players. They take anywhere between 3 and 15 minutes to complete depending on your skill level, and we love replaying them to get our times down.”

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

“We plan to monitor how people perceive the value of Cat Herders as it grows and use that information to inform on a price for the full release.”

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

“We'll be doing devlogs and posting in our Discord server to let you folks know what's going on in the Herdiverse. Stay tuned!”

About This Game

Cat Herders is a chaotic 1-4 player, split-screen coop game. It's about herding cats. Each level has a goal, and your job is to get the troublesome cats into that goal as quickly as possible using a variety of items!

We just pushed our big Anniversary Update which improves gameplay and the UI a whole bunch!

Use items like tuna, your computer keyboard and Cat Snax™ to draw cats towards the goal. Use scarier items like a barking robot dog to push them in whichever direction you please. Use more chill items like the music box to put them to sleep while you figure out a plan of attack. Use the cat trap to move multiple cats quickly. Create chaos with the cat cannon!

Coordinate with your friends in 2-4 player split-screen (Steam Remote Play/Parsec friendly!) to get the cats to the goal as fast as you can.

Compete to finish each level in the fastest time with gold, silver and bronze medal times. Compare your times to other cat herders on the online leaderboards!

Halloween and Christmas maps have been added! Herd cats in the abandoned medieval village while being hunted by the spoopy ghost cat or entice cats with presents in a beautiful winter wonderland.
