Cute space-cat survival game MewnBase 1.0 is out now

By - | Views: 23,886

Space-cat survival and base-building game MewnBase has now left Early Access, for those of you who love your smaller games it's a nice pick. It's evolved a fair bit over the years and good to see it finally release!

"MewnBase is a cute, 2D exploration/survival game. You land on an uncharted world only to realize you didn't bring any snacks and forgot half your luggage. But hey, at least you brought this workbench thing. You'll need to collect resources in order to construct a make-shift base. Craft a variety of different base modules, from airlocks to rain-water collectors in order to make your new home on this barren planet a little more cozy." — Cairn4

Other Features:

  • Technology Upgrades - Find strange, yet oddly familiar artifacts scattered around the planet. Research them to unlock shiny new crafting recipes and tech upgrades.
  • Manage Your Base's Resources - Build air cleaners to keep you breathing. All those modules plugged into a single outlet probably won't cut it. So you'll need more solar panels to keep things humming along. Keep a supply of clean water on hand to keep your plants hydrated.
  • Day/Night Cycles and Weather Hazards - It's hard to find your way in the dark. So fuel up your generators and make sure your base’s batteries are topped off before night falls. Then batten down the hatches during thunderstorms and gusty sandstorms.
  • Vehicles - Walking from point A to B is for the theoretical space-birds. If there were any. Construct vehicles to traverse long distances in style.
  • Community Localization - MewnBase comes with several community-provided translations for menus and gameplay text, including: German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, and Turkish.

The developer mentioned they will be moving onto other things now, but they will still provide bug fixes for issues as they come up.

You can buy it on itch.io and Steam. It has Native Linux support and is rated Steam Deck Playable.

Oh wow, I've been following this for *years*, and it's amazing to finally see a 1.0 release. Going to have to check out what's changed since the last time I've played. Quite a lot, I'm sure.

This seems like a great game for the Deck, as it's not as intense as most other base builder survivals.
I love this game. It's really cute and very relaxing.

Good news!
I got it on itch.io and just downloaded an update using the itch native Linux client 😎
