Get to know MouseCraft's cat scientist, Schrodinger

The latest trailer for MouseCraft, the puzzle platformer from Warsaw-based indie studio Crunching Koalas, focuses on the game's main character: a cat named Schrödinger.

This feline scientist is no thought experiment; Schrödinger appears in the backdrop of every MouseCraft level. In each stage, players guide mice to cheese in order to help Schrödinger. He's working on a machine powered by the movement of mice, which is why he has placed cheese throughout the contraption — it's a pretty good motivator to get mice moving.

Schrödinger has already spent a lot of money on this machine, so he can't afford to buy much more cheese. Everything he has left is put in the player's hands, so it's up to the player to drop a limited amount of cheese throughout MouseCraft's 80 levels and get all the mice going.

MouseCraft is currently available on Linux, Mac and Windows PC via Steam Early Access. The final PC version, along with the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita versions, are set to be released July 8.
