Team Meat releases second track for Mew-Genics

Mew-Genics developer Team Meat released the second track, "Dirty Mittens," for its upcoming cat-breeding game. The game's music is being produced by two-man band Ridiculon. "Dirty Mittens," is an upbeat, brassy track available to download for $1 via Ridiculon's Bandcamp page. According to Team Meat co-founder Edmund McMillen, the song is one of 12 "jukebox" tracks that will loop through the game. "They change with the weather, so when it starts to rain it will cue up the slow moody tracks, or when it gets really hot the more fast paced tracks appear," McMillen wrote. You can listen to the track above. Team Meat released the first song from the game's soundtrack, "The Ballad of D. Claude," earlier this year. Mew-Genics is currently being developed for Android, iOS and Steam. A...


Mew-Genics won't be playable at PAX after all, but here's a teaser trailer

Team Meat will no longer be showing their upcoming iOS and Steam game, Mew-Genics, at PAX this weekend because they don't believe the demo will do the game justice, but they did release this new trailer. Mew-Genics is still very much a nebulous thing. As catchy as this new trailer (featuring music by Ridiculon) is, it doesn't really help define the game much more. Edmund McMillen, in his email announcing the trailer, describes the game as many things, all of them cat-centric. It is a cat breeding sim, a cat fighting sim, a cat hoarding sim, a cat pageant sim, a cat racing sim, he wrote. "At its foundation Mew-Genics is a randomly generated game that gives back the more you play it ... and its honestly quite hard to sum up in one articulate sentence," he wrote. "The best we can do is:...

The latest teaser for Team Meat's upcoming cat-centric title, Mew-Genics, has arrived, and this week brings the musicals fruits of the title theme, "Cat Chase." According to Edmund McMillen, who posted the update, the game's music is being penned and composed by Jon Evans and Matthias Bossi, who voiced the narrator in The Binding of Isaac. Mew-Genics will feature a full album with more than 20 studio-recorded tracks, half of which will contain lyrics. "We really wanted to make the game's music feature extended themes of the game or small stories within each song, kind of how Katamari did it in a way, except all our songs are about cats!" McMillen wrote. Team Meat continues to reveal details about Mew-Genics on a weekly basis. Last week, McMillen wrote that players will never get the...
