Anima Press launches Mew-Tants! A RPG where you play as a cat with mutant powers.


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. You can pick up a physical copy and digital copies will be available from Anima Press, Itch.io, and DriveThru RPG.

Mew-Tants is the first in a planned series of animal-based RPGs, with the next planned game Were-Woofs being set within the same universe but have players take control of a muttley group of doggos. All of the games will be cross-compatible in respect to rules and adventures you can play together.
