Check the unique gameplay mix of managing the ship’s crew, known from games like FTL: Faster Than Light and Star Command Galaxies, with the grid-based combat you’ll recognize from XCOM and Divinity: Original Sin. Space Cats Tactics: Prologue is now available for free on Steam.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – February 5th, Haarlem, Netherlands.
The year is 2635. Humankind has started genetic trials on felines with only one goal in mind – to make them smarter, stronger, and to create ultimate super soldiers to fight greed-fueled battles between corporations. Ever since this goal was achieved, humans have been using their creations as slaves to fight meaningless wars, and they’re often forced to kill their own kind. After years of oppression, a revolution began. The cats fought bravely against their creators, and finally, a peace treaty was signed. For the first time, these super cats got the chance to assimilate into society. But the scars are far from healed, and even now, they are considered outsiders, inferior, and outcasts of the community.

ABOUT THE GAME
Space Cats Tactics is a turn-based tactical RPG that will allow you to go where no cat has ever gone before. Think about it as if FTL: Faster Than Light and XCOM had a child. Except this “child” is a fluffy, furry, meowy, and incredibly inquisitive kitten. One that has grown up, sharpened its claws, and is now ready to not only explore its nearby surroundings but to go beyond the horizon. Literally. However, don’t be fooled by the game’s humorous protagonists, as there are deep mechanics, complex strategies, and diversified gameplay hidden behind the four paws and a tail.
In Space Cats Tactics, you’re Mitzi – a former soldier short of money who receives a lucrative, yet not entirely legal, offer from a mysterious high-ranking militant. The objective? To smuggle the Curiosity – an advanced ship – to the far outer reaches of the galaxy. In other words, the choice is simple. Either continue living your miserable life in destitution or turn to smuggling and piracy to survive. The task won’t be easy, as the government is already hot on your tail. So you and your second-in-command, Biski, have to do everything you can to escape their clutches as this is your only chance to survive and change your lives for good.
