Today’s Spotlight is Cat Quest II, a comfy and casual action-RPG by The Gentlebros and PQube Limited.
This sequel to the colorful and pun-filled cat RPG of 2017 follows two kings trying to prevent a disastrous war between the nations of Felingard and the Lupus Empire. Cat Quest II adds drop-in, drop-out local co-op, new weapon types, an expanded skill system, and plenty of new regions to explore. You can check out the launch trailer above.
Cat Quest II is available on Windows PC (via Steam) for $14.99, or as part of the Apple Arcade subscription service. Ports for PS4 and Xbox One will be coming later this year.
Here’s a rundown of the game:
