What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“MewnBase has been in development for a few years. Its launch on Steam Early Access will get it into more hands and help gather feedback to make the game more enjoyable for everyone!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I work on MewnBase in my spare time so it's a little difficult to estimate how long it'll take to get the game "feature complete,” but I'm hoping by the end of 2019 it'll be ready for a 1.0 release.”

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

“The full version of MewnBase will be a more fleshed out and polished experience. It will have more content added to the existing systems in game, new features that give you more ways to play, more things to do, and more ways to build your base to survive. Some examples of include:

  • Additional biomes with new resources to discover and collect.
  • More base modules to construct.
  • Some creatures, both passive and hostile.
  • More environmental hazards.
  • More vehicles.
  • Better audio and gameplay music.
  • Updated, community-driven localization.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“MewnBase has been in development since 2016, and is currently somewhere between an Alpha and Beta stage. It has a lot of core features already in place, a decent menu and in-game UI, and it has a lot of good stuff for shorter length gameplay sessions. It has expansive world generation, crafting, weather, researching, and some cute art.

It definitely needs more later-stage gameplay features and events, while striking the balancing between keeping survival challenging enough, while not overly punishing or irritating.

I'm constantly attempting to iron out bugs and address the occasional compatibility issue with certain drivers and OS settings.”

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

“Yes. The game will will start on Early Access at a lower, discounted rate. As development continues and new content is added the price will slowly rise accordingly.”

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

“Involving the community in gameplay testing and collecting feedback is super important to the development of MewnBase. Through the MewnBase community forums and Discord channel, I want to make sure players have the ability to provide feedback things such as: the general balancing and difficulty, figuring out what parts of the game need to be explained more clearly or shown in the tutorial, suggestions on features for new tiles and base modules, and helping find platform-specific bugs that are sometimes hard to reproduce.”

About This Game

Be a space-cat.


MewnBase is a cute, 2D exploration/survival game. You land on an uncharted world only to realize you didn't bring any snacks and forgot half your luggage. But hey, at least you brought this workbench thing. You'll need to collect resources in order to construct a make-shift base. Craft a variety of different base modules, from airlocks to rain-water collectors in order to make your new home on this barren planet a little more cozy.

Other Neat Features


Technology Upgrades
Find strange, yet oddly familiar artifacts scattered around the planet. Research them to unlock shiny new crafting recipes and tech upgrades.

Manage Your Base's Resources
Build air cleaners to keep you breathing. All those modules plugged into a single outlet probably won't cut it. So you'll need more solar panels to keep things humming along. Keep a supply of clean water on hand to keep your plants hydrated.

Day/Night Cycles and Weather Hazards
It's hard to find your way in the dark. So fuel up your generators and make sure your base’s batteries are topped off before night falls. Then batten down the hatches during thunderstorms and gusty sandstorms.

Vehicles
Walking from point A to B is for the theoretical space-birds. If there were any. Construct vehicles to traverse long distances in style.

Community Localization
MewnBase comes with several community-provided translations for menus and gameplay text, including: German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, and Turkish.
