Аn indirect-control tile-twisting puzzled adventure… with traps!

Molecats is a challenging indirect-control puzzle game that takes place in the quirky and beautiful world of... Molecats!

Molecats are sort of cat-mole hybrids. They are a bunch of gawky fellows who like mushrooms, marching and adventures of all kind! Molecats spend their time digging into nearby caves and gathering delicious ‘shrooms and shiny relics, occasionally getting lost in the process.

Your goal is to guide Molecats through the underground by taking control of the environment and changing the path they follow. On their way, Molecats will face lots of dangerous traps, spooky monsters and tricky challenges and meet a whole bunch of strange but interesting characters.

Features:

  • Indirect control via level tiles. Rotate tiles to connect paths; apply special powers to tiles to make Molecats run, stop, or walk in opposite direction.
  • Simple but challenging. Simple game mechanics at its base with little twists creating more challenging pathfinding puzzles.
  • Peace! Traps and monsters don’t kill, but make your life way more complicated.
  • Nonfailure” gameplay style. You can’t actually lose this game, but if you mess up, you will end up facing even more puzzles.
  • Tons of secrets! Each level features secondary goals, trophies, mysterious unlockables, special relic collections and hidden locations plus secret levels with unique game mechanics!

Prepare the Mushrooms!

Hello, Dear Indiedb community!

Molecats Waterfall!


We are finally live on Steam Early Access!

We have travelled a very long road with this project and we want to make sure it is as polished as possible prior to release.

This is our first launch on Steam, so we do expect a few issues. While online, the game has been already updated a few times, so we have fixed major bugs and glitches. But still, you can expect some unpolished areas.

Doorman


The current version of the game has two chapters available (out of five) of the main Story Mode (about 25+ levels). We are preparing the next content update with new Story chapter (more levels!), which will come pretty soon! We are aimed for release this winter, so you do not have to wait long.


At the moment we have support for English, German, Spanish, Russian and Ukrainian languages, but there will be more on the relese! (Btw, you can help us with localization, so feel free to contact us via molecats[@]gmail.com!)


We will be happy to get any feedback from you!

Brothers!

Probably the best-looking game I've seen on this site. Fantastic art style all the way through, awesome music. Looking forward to supporting this game, totally think it deserves to be a success. Will it be available on Linux?
