After spending a year in Steam’s Early Access, developer Vidroid’s Molecats is releasing fully on August 28.
Molecats is a puzzle game that involves turning around tiles to alter the paths for each cat-mole hybrid called “molecat.” Aside from collecting loot and reaching the exit safely, players must also help each molecat avoid various enemies and traps.
The game’s Early Access price is $9.99, but once it releases the price will increase to $12.99. In the meantime, you can learn more about the game below before watching its launch trailer.
About the game
In Molecats, your job is to help the aforementioned Molecats secure ever-important foodstuffs (‘shrooms) and loot (relics). Guide them through dangerous underground tunnels by twisting and turning tiles – indirectly controlling where and how your crew tackles each challenge. Ruthless monsters and traps will be around every corner: Take your time and plan each move carefully to keep those Molecats smiling. Of course, finding the exit with both goodies and limbs intact is great – but stay on the lookout for achievements, secondary goals, unlockables, secret levels, and more. You never know what you’ll dig up underground …
