Anima Press announces launch date for Mew-Tants! A RPG where you play as fur-midable cats with mutant powers. 

Press Release 12/06/20 – For Immediate Release

Anima Press is proud to announce the launch date of it’s first RPG Mew-Tants! Mew-Tants will be available from Friday the 19th of June 2020.

Designed by Anima Press founder Aled Lawlor, Mew-Tants! is a rules-lite, indie rpg zine that uses a simple d6 system where everyone is a cat. Not just a normal cat, but a cat with a unique mutant superpower that ranges from tele-cat-nesis to laser pointer eyes to cat-ortionism. 

Players will explore their neighbourhoods, rescue stranded kittens and take down fearsome were-woofs in this game designed for 2-5 players and a games master. Anything is possible, except for things requiring thumbs, you are still a cat. 

Mew-Tants! is presented in a gorgeous A5, 24 page, risograph printed, 120 GSM, saddle-stitched zine format. This contains all the rules needed to play as well as a short adventure ‘The Catnapping.’ Will your team of mutant cats find the missing Kitty Foo-Foo and bring the culprit to justice?  Ideal for one shots but able to carry longer adventures, Mew-Tants is a purr-fect addition to any cat lovers RPG collection. 

Mew-Tants was successfully funded at over 200% on Kickstarter and has been fully fulfilled to the early backers. 

The RPG will be available to the public in both print and PDF from Friday the 19th of June.
