PAX East 2019: Cat Quest II – First Impressions

PQube brought along a sizable selections to PAX East this year, and we spent a decent amount of time checking out all the new releases (and some already released titles that we hadn’t seen before). None of the games on offer were particularly challenging or complex, but that didn’t seem to be the point. The booth was bright and colorful and the game systems were set up at tables with chairs to take a load off. Everything about the booth offered up a sense of invitation—and fun.

Cat Quest II was among the selections, and truly, there’s not a whole lot to say about it other than it’s entertaining and meant for light-hearted enjoyment. Those familiar with and fans of the fantasy-world RPG style of the first Cat Quest will be happy to know they’re in for more of the same—yet another fast-paced, massive open world with monsters, quests, dungeons, and real-time combat.

In this sequel, you can play as either a cat or a dog, and your aim in this game is to bring peace to your kingdom during wartime. It’s not complex. It’s not anything you haven’t seen before, really. But it’s fun, it’s cute, the dialogue is laden with puns, and it’s a great co-op experience (as long as you coordinate around obstacles to avoid getting impaled when one of you opens a chest and triggers animation that freezes your movement, for example).

From the Singapore-based studio Gentlebros., Cat Quest II arrives sometime later this year.

Faith likes games and books and cake and writing and Lara Croft, not necessarily in that order. She also thinks a Skylanders cartoon show is a really, REALLY good idea...
