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

Molecats are sort of cat-mole hybrids. They are simpletons who like mushrooms, marching and go on adventures! They usually dig into nearby caves to gather delicious ‘shrooms and shiny relics, but mostly get lost along the way.

Your goal here is to guide Molecats through the caves by taking control of the environment and changing the course they follow. Along the way Molecats will face lots of dangerous traps, spooky monsters and tricky challenges and meet a whole bunch of strange but interesting creatures.

Features:

  • Indirect control based on manipulating with level tiles. Rotate tiles to make different paths; apply special powers to tiles to make Molecats run, stop, or walk in opposite direction.
  • Simple but challenging. Pretty simple game mechanics at it's base, but with a little twists for a challenging pathfinding puzzles.
  • Peace! Traps and monsters, that do not kill, but rather make walkthrough much more complicated.
  • "Nonfailure" gameplay style. You can't actually fail a level, but you will become more puzzled, if you are making mistakes.
  • Lots of secrets! Secondary goals in each level, trophies, mysterious unlocks, special relic collections to gather, hidden locations and secret levels with unique game mechanics.

Prepare the Mushrooms!

Hi there!
Molecats are trying some new mechanics to freshen up gameplay and they need your opinion!

We have prepared the WEB Demo with a whole new & experimental level. No more downloading & installing to play, all you need is Unity Player for your browser! We will continue "web-builds practice" from now on. Please, if you are interested in Molecats, try playing this demo and write a few words about your experience in comments!

Web Demo (needs Unity Player)


New features in this level:

  • Flip Tiles - This new ones have two different sides!
  • Slide Tiles - Those can be moved to the empty spaces!
  • Fast Forward function ([space] by default) - This is to make more clear the fact, that the “RUN” power is not for speeding up the gameplay, but to control what items & switches Molecats interact with. With Fast Forward you can actually speed up the game if you hate waiting.
  • Somewhat new control scheme for mouse & keyboard. See the help chart on the demo page for reference.
  • New location & visual setting - Underground Vault!

Still, you can always try our previous demo if you've missed it.

Thank you, and don't forget to vote for us on Greenlight, if you like the game!
Stay tuned!

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?

We are developing on Unity, so yes, it's absolutely possible that game will be available on linux. We want to cover as much platforms as possible!
