It’s the game we’ve all been waiting for, people; you canĀ finally be several cats…

Sort of like if you need a horse in a film…

Haha yeah. Simpsons reference. Go me.

Where was I? That’s right, a game where you play as a bunch of cats.

Started on Kickstarter by Eric Blumrich, the game will follow a set of nine cats as they roam their home island, trying the uncover clues as to what happened to their owners.

You see, upon waking up one day, the cats discover that every human on the island has mysteriously vanished. Very strange.

I don’t have a cat and I’m not a huge fan, but from what I understand from memes, cats absolutely would not care if all humans vanished. This seems like more of a job for a gang of dogs… but then I guess that’s too similar to that Wes Anderson film.

Currently under development for PC, Mac and Oculus VR system, Peace Island will be a “mix of science fiction, alternative history, and mystery – unfolds from the perspective of the nine cats who call the island home, when they wake up to find their human companions gone.”

As the cats, you’ll be expected to explore the open world environment, as well as solve various puzzles. The island is empty of humans, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any threats lurking around…

The Kickstarter page continues:

Peace Island is an interactive story-driven experience which will focus on discovery and exploration, rather than combat.”

The Kickstarter, which has so far had $13,098 pledged of a $7,000 goal, stated that the game has been pushed back a further three months, but when it does release, it will be great.

You can pledge here, if you want. If you like clicking links and being mildly surprised, you can also click here and see where I’ve taken you…
