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: 'Mew-Genics is a crazy cat lady simulator... the best one ever made!'

McMillen writes that the development for the game has been "quite an undertaking and is turning into a project that rivals Super Meat Boy in terms of content, blood, sweat and tears. We are pushing for a 2014 release, the sooner the better but its def one of those 'its done when its done' projects."

While you won't be able to play the game at PAX, Team Meat is still there and they're giving out free copies of their Mew-Genics comic activity book. If you're not at the show, you can also buy them signed at Team Meat's shop.
