For cat lovers and fans of Zelda-like games, today is a good day. Singapore dev team The Gentlebros released their indie title Cat Quest on Steam with a $12.99 USD price tag. In the usual early adopter fashion, the game is 20% off until August 15th. Publisher PQube also dropped a launch trailer to celebrate this purr-fect opportunity to do so.

Cat Quest is an action-RPG that takes place on a 2D plane. You basically play as a knight kitty looking to save his sister from the evil Drakoth and his hordes of dragons. This ‘catventure’ incorporates real-time combat into the mix, where you can slash, dodge, and magic your way through enemies. You’ll be helped with a number of different pieces of equipment and gear that not only change your stats but also your appearance. Picking out the right combinations will be key to sniffing out victory (and catnip).

There will be many places to explore with a world map that looks gorgeous in action (just check out the trailer if you don’t believe me). The team promises many secrets and interesting NPCs to uncover along with the ability to jump in for 10-20 minutes at a time and still feel like something was accomplished.

If you’re looking to find out more information, you can check out one of the the dev diaries that Gentlebros put together. And while the game has been announced for Switch and PS4, unfortunately no new information came from today’s launch.

You can pick up Cat Quest on Steam now or watch the launch video below to submit to the new world order of kitties on the internet:
