Over the weekend Team Meat continued their “Caturday” tradition of releasing some small nugget of information about their next project, Mew-Genics. Now that we have met the game’s five characters and are armed with the knowledge that it has over 12 sextillion different cats, Team Meat felt the next important marketing step to take would be to let us listen to the its title theme, “Cat Chase”.
Team Meat’s Edmund McMillen revealed the title theme on the company’s blog, saying:
“We really splurged with the soundtrack for Mew-Genics, the game will feature a full album of over 20 studio recorded songs. We really wanted to make the games music feature extended themes of the game or small stories within each song, kind of how Katamari did it in a way, except all our songs are about cats!”
Mew-Genics‘ soundtrack is being composed and written by Jon Evans and Matthias Bossi (who voiced the narrator in The Binding of Isaac). Cat Chase is a bit creepy on the ears and to be honest I found the strange gurgling cat mews slightly off-putting… at first. During the last fifteen minutes that I’ve been writing up this post the song has been on a loop and it has grown on me a bit. Check out the theme song for yourself in the video down below.
It should also be pointing out that despite all these weekly teaser announcements from Team Meat we still don’t have the slightest idea as to when Mew-Genics will be released, what platforms it is coming out on, or even what we will be doing in the game with those 12 sextillion cats while we hum Cat Chase. As soon as the answers to any of those questions are revealed we will let you know, however, at this point I would recommend against holding your breath.
