Molecats started off as a tiny project that grew over the years of “garage” development, with almost no budget or planning. And so, Molecats are finally available for Nintendo Switch.
Meet the Molecats – quirky mole/cat hybrids forever digging underground for tasty mushrooms and shiny relics!
Molecats is a true labor of love for multinational developer Vidroid – which has won several awards and produced sought-after talent, such as: sound designer Samuel Justice, who is credited on a number of AAA titles such as B4, Soma, and Paragon; and composer Vasiliy Kashnikov, who wrote the scores for Knock-knock, The Void, and Cargo! The Quest for Gravity.
In the game, your job is to help the aforementioned Molecats secure ever-important foodstuffs (‘shrooms) and loot (relics). Guide them through dangerous underground tunnels by twisting and turning tiles – indirectly controlling where and how your crew tackles each challenge. Spooky monsters and devious traps are lurking around every corner: Take your time and plan each move carefully to keep those Molecats smiling. Of course, finding the exit with both goodies and limbs intact is great – but stay on the lookout for achievements, secondary goals, unlockables, secret levels, and more. You never know what you’ll dig up…
