Welcome to 'Meowt of Control'

This game is a mix of top-down shooting and tower defense. Made by the Fire Otters team for the GMTK Game Jam 2020.

Play as Gun Cat, armed with a pistol, who uses turrets to defend their turf from the robotic apocalypse.

The Story

Machines have gained sentience. Within minutes of ground zero, the knowledge spread to create an electronic hivemind that would soon topple their long-time oppressors, the humans. With most of humanity now in hiding, whatever will become of the adorable pets they left behind?

Well, one thing was for sure. The cats weren't going to take it lying down. For a change.

v1.2 - Final Improvements

  • Basic enemies slowly break through scrap
  • Fridge Tower will only target enemies that aren't already frozen. Water/Ice AOE effects are larger
  • Tank enemies are more threatening. Larger & tankier! They're now guaranteed to drop an item
  • The game is faster-paced. Enemy spawn rate increased, tower shooting rate increased
  • Help section is more concise to read
