Description

Fort Meow is a pillow fort physics-based puzzle adventure involving cats, destruction and a dusty old manor. Upon finding her grandfather’s journal in the attic, Nia is attacked by a barrage of feline assailants. It seems that her grandmother has become a crazy cat lady since last time she visited, so you will need to defend Nia by building a protective fort out of furniture to keep the cats at bay, while deciphering the mysterious tales hidden within the journal.

History

Upper Class Walrus - Developer: Upper Class Walrus is the creative outlet for Rhys Davies, independent game developer based in Adelaide, Australia. He started developing games as a hobby eleven years ago, and then decided to pursue it as his career. His first release was Take My Machete for iPhone and iPad, and now he’s creating something completely different with Fort Meow.

Features

  • Physics-based pillow fort building – build your own custom pillow fort out of household items to protect you from an onslaught of feline assailants as they tumble and claw their way through. Just be careful that your carefully constructed walls don’t tumble down with them.
  • A Cat-alogue of items to build your fort – build and layer your forts with pillows, grandfather clocks, toasters and more. There are over twenty items to discover, each with a unique property that will help you build the ultimate fortress of protection from the oncoming cat-aclysm.
  • Unravel the mystery – find out what brought so many cats to the attic, and what your grandfather was hiding in the pages of his journal. Something cat-astrophic could be afoot.
  • Cats, Cats, Cats – orange tabbies, majestic chinchillas, dreaded black cats, they are all invading the house and causing mischief. Check out their watermelon stack hats!
