PS4 will get Lemmings-inspired puzzler MouseCraft on July 8

It's really mice to see a new puzzle game, if you ask me.

by

Indie studio Crunching Koalas will release its puzzler MouseCraft on July 8 for PS4, PS3, Vita. PC, Mac, and Linux versions of the game will also be released on Steam.

The studio describes the game as a mix between Lemmings and Tetris, with players dropping tetromino blocks to guide a set of mice around obstacles. The game will ship with 80 levels, and the main storyline will offer around 6-8 hours of gameplay.

But MouseCraft will also feature its own level editor, and creations can be shared over Steam workshop or through the game's bespoke system. Crunching Koalas adds that Sony platforms will support Cross-Buy and Cross-Save, and the Steam version will feature cloud saves, leaderboards, and trading cards.

Mousecraft's journey to release has seen it rise up through the ranks of Steam Greenlight and, in recent weeks, was picked up by publisher Curve Studios. A new trailer for the game (above) was also released.

The game revolves around leading fanboys to Xbox One articles.

This would be funnier if Sony fanboys were still called Lemmings, that term died last gen. The proper term now is Sony pony.

Looks interesting! The damn cat guy in the background is going to be annoying but I am such a hardcore (original) Lemmings fan and Tetris is of course classic fun

@KamuiFei  I honestly didn't know that! When I say Lemmings I mean the totally awesome game Lemmings from the 90s.

@xantufrog Hey, it's Tom from Crunching Koalas - the developers of the game. For the last one and a half year the cat was standing there, in the background, and we never got any feedback that he's annoying. 


Players usually focus their sight on the mice, not on the cat, so I think that once you'll have a chance to check the game, you will be satisfied and won't annoyed by our crazy cat scientist ;).


Cheers,

Tom
