Peace Island: The Cat Game We’ve Always Wanted

I don’t know if you’ve heard, but everybody wants to be a cat. This open world game is all about taking on the role of a cat to solve mysteries and uncover the secrets of the missing humans. Now that’s a sentence you don’t read very often.

Peace Island is the work of creator Eric Blumrich and a small team of devs, which apparently includes alumni from Prune and a little-known title called Grand Theft Auto V. The game’s Patreon page describes it as “an open-world, story-driven adventure game, currently under development for the PC, Mac, and Oculus VR system.” Peace Island will forgo combat in favor of an experience that focuses on puzzle solving, discovery, and exploration — so expect a title more in the vein of The Witness, but with cats. It also sounds as if we’ll be able to experience “multiple divergent storylines” as we approach the “ultimate decision” — are the humans worth bringing back?

A Kickstarter went around, and surprisingly, a lot of support came through and $13,000 was funded in the just the first 24 hours. We have been given a rough look of what the game is going to look like and a general idea of the open world part of the project. Peace Island clearly has its sights aimed high, as it also looks to “expand the emotional palette of gaming, and bring a bit of creativity back to an industry obsessed with monetization, loot boxes, and exploiting properties that have long since ceased to capture the imagination.” We look forward to more updates in the future.
