Mew-Genics, the upcoming game from the developers of Super Meat Boy, will move beyond cat hoarding to "more traditional hoarding" and will feature an accident prone child called Baby Jack, according to an update its official blog.
Baby Jack is the manager of the in-game store, Hoarders R Us, which will allow players to collect new items. But, according to developer Edmund McMillen, it "wont be your basic hoarding sim" and the "furniture in the shop has significance that goes beyond pathological collecting."
"Every day Jack stocks the store with pieces of his Nonas collection, bringing you amazing things for your house as well as aiding in her eventual escape from the confines of her self imposed tomb." McMillen wrote on the blog. He went to say that the freedom to change a game's design throughout its development is one of the highlights aspects of being an indie developer.
Team Meat recently said that it was "not really" interested in developing games for consoles due to the "headache" they associate with it.
Mew-Genics will release for Steam, iOS, Android at an unannounced date.
