  Share on Twitter RSS

[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource Games Press.]

July 26, 2021. HeroCraft PC is proud to present a new trailer for its most adorable game yet: Catizens! And what exactly is Catizens? It's a colony management simulation game where you watch over a group of kitties—all with unique, quirky personalities—as you help them build and grow their settlement. 


The gameplay overview trailer shows off a few situations you may come across while playing Catizens. Each catizen has a distinct personality with unique traits, which means forming an effective team of settlers from a bunch of fluffy catventurers is no small task. But don’t worry, herding cats is fun and easy! It’s easy, right?

The trailer was just premiered via DreamHack Beyond, an ESL Gaming show. Additionally, the game has a free demo that is available on Steam until July 31. 


Catizens is developed by Bad Optics, a small development studio based in the US. The game is published by HeroCraft PC and set to release on Steam later this year.
