Something a bit different this weekend. Let’s pretend you’re a designer at a small game company. The word has come down: the company has been talking to a cat-themed website and they want you to come up with some brief design treatments for cat-themed games. The games should be “casual”, and generally cat-positive. What kind of games would you suggest?
My ideas below.
Let me get the obvious stuff out of the way: re-skin existing types of casual games with cat themes. For example, you could take match-3 type gameplay (like in Bejeweled) and make the items into cat toys. Between rounds when the board clears, you could have cats scampering across the board scattering the toys.
So, what’s your more original idea?
