Talk about squad goals, amirite?
Created by Eric Blumrich, comes a new kind of gaming experience! 'Peace Island' is an open-world adventure about cats on a remote Maine island, and how they must band together, after their humans disappear.
Sounds amazing already, right?
That's not even the best part -- you get to play as a cat. We don't know about the rest of you 2-legged beings, but we certainly wouldn't mind taking a moment and living a day as a 4-legged adorable fluff that doesn't have any human responsibility.
Now that dream can become a reality.
See some screenshots and read all about the kitty adventure waiting for you!
Welcome to Peace Island!
The creator, Eric Blumrich explains that: "The story – a mix of science fiction, alternative history, and mystery – unfolds from the perspective of the nine cats who call the island home, when they wake up to find their human companions gone."
Blumrich added, "Peace Island is an interactive story-driven experience which will focus on discovery and exploration, rather than combat."
This game is being described as a GTA meets Sims Castaway meets cat-lover's dream!
Since the story experience will be focused on "discovery and exploration, rather than combat," that means the game will be a non-violent cat paradise!
The game will include hundreds of secret documents and artifacts left behind by the missing humans, and providing an engaging timeline spanning over 200 years for you to discover!
In the game, you need to join forces with 9 other cats on the island to complete your cat gang and "secure your future"
The game starts with Elizabeth...
Written in the opening-scene transcript:
"Elizabeth hasn't had the best of days. It began with being gently shoved into the big plastic box that usually meant a trip to the doctor. She made her opinion about the situation well known as she was carried away.
The anticipated pokes and prods never materialized, thankfully enough, but it was loud, and bright, and noisy outside of her tiny confines. Fortunately, the box was lined with her favorite blanket. Her occasional protestations were met with a steady stream of reassuring murmurs, and generous treats shoved in-between the shiny bars of her temporary prison.
The ever-changing tableau of alien color and shape outside faded as a grudging sleep overcame her. She was with her human, after all. As long as they were together, she knew she was safe."
The plot thickens...
"When she awoke sometime later, the door to her cage was open. Any fear of the unfamiliar was banished, when she caught the scent of fresh food, just beyond her confines. Yet- the apartment she finds herself in is silent.
Her human is nowhere to be found, and the unfamiliar sight of an open door beckons. She would rather stay inside, but she can hear the cries of one of her kind, just outside."
Thus, Peace Island begins.
All the cats featured in Peace Island are inspired by real cats Eric has encountered:
Blumrich continued to say, "Peace Island is also a personal homage to the beauty of Maine Islands, and to the cats who I have been lucky enough to meet and share my life with."
A large game world with over fifty accessible structures to explore, your cat-like self will be reaching exciting heights !
the game also offers a series of multiple divergent story-lines throughout, leading to the final decision: "Are the humans worth bringing back?"
Sounds riveting, a tad spooky, and 100% right up our alley(cats)!
So many cool features to go on about! The game was due to released February 2019 but had to be pushed back.
