What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to build a community around this game and bring you along on the journey to full launch! Ever since development on Catizens began, getting feedback and seeing reactions from real players has been a vital part of the process.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The Early Access period will last ~6 months, which is enough time for our team to complete the rest of the levels and content planned for the game.”

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

“The full version will contain:
  • More levels with new terrain and challenges, including the final goal for the single player campaign – reaching the Lava Meowntain.
  • More professions for your catizens to explore.
  • New buildings and associated game mechanics.
  • Better visuals, including 3D models, effects and game UI.
  • Content requested by players, as long as it fits our intended vision for Catizens.
  • New enemy types.
  • More in-game events.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The EA version of Catizens is a fully playable game with a proper tutorial, 3 game levels and a sandbox mode for added replayability.”

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

“The price might go up when the full game launches and as more content will be available.”

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

“We are looking forward to player suggestions via the Steam Community and our Discord.”

Early Access Roadmap

About This Game

Herding cats is easy! Said no one…ever

Your main job in Catizens is to build your town around the personality traits of its inhabitants. Just like in real life, cats require personal attention and special treatment. Combinations of different personality traits and moods affect their proficiency and obedience. Catizens form relationships with each other and will occasionally issue personal requests, so you will need to learn what makes each cat happy in order to stay on their good side.

Create unique cats and design the perfect home

Pick from an assortment of facial and body features, as well as personality traits to create cats with distinct looks and temperaments. Design a place just for them by decorating your settlements with pieces of furniture, plants and other items. The better furnished a town is, the happier your catizens will be. So get creative!

Build and manage your settlement

Catizens can learn a variety of professions – from farming, to blacksmithing or offering protection from local wildlife. Different building types unlock depending on the traits and professions available. There’s no need to micromanage the entire settlement when it gets large. Invest your time and attention in a few outstanding cats and let them become town leaders.

Explore the wilderness

Develop your settlement, complete objectives and expand to areas with different environments that offer new adventures. Carefully examine your surroundings to find the best fishing spots, hidden treasures and quirky characters that may offer a quest.
