Hello everyone! Nom Cat came out last week and what a wild ride the release week it has been! I've been meaning to write a blog post about Nom Cat earlier, but we've just been too busy working on the game.
If you didn't notice already, Nom Cat was featured on the App Store front page! Tons of people loved the game and we have an average of 4.7/5 stars with over 5000 ratings and reviews! Thanks for your support!
Development of Nom Cat
Nom Cat started off as one of those games where we thought to ourselves: let's make a simple and fun game in just 2 weeks! Of course that wasn't true in the end. We added a lot of things and even coped with delays!
In the beginning, Nom Cat was a just sketchy cat that eats fish and dodges bombs. We quickly started fleshing out the game, we added a background and gold fish that could be used as currency to unlock new cats.
But Nom Cat couldn't stay as sketchy as it was. We experimented with a few designs and we ended up with a grumpy looking cat, which we thought was the funniest and most iconic. We then started adding tons of new unlockable characters based on Nom Cat!
The rules of the game quickly changed too. We added 2 cats in the game which made catching fish and dodging bombs incredibly frantic. You were allowed to miss a few fish in the beginning. We removed this rule later, because we felt the game should have a more "Flappy Bird-like" experience. Make one mistake and you're out! The thrill of catching every fish was much bigger without a life line!
Many people are asking us: can you add Grumpy Cat? Or Lil Bub? Pusheen? We'd love to add all the famous cats from the internet, but of course this isn't just a matter of simply adding them to our game. All these cats have owners and we need to ask their permission! We are really happy we were able to get so many famous cats in. If you want to support these cats, purchase them for only a dollar! A part will also go to charity!
More famous cats will be coming to Nom Cat. Want to know which one? You'll have to wait a little longer before we announce them ;)
We're working hard on the next update for Nom Cat. I hope you're excited as we are. There's tons of new cats and improvements. See you next time!
