Cat Quest started out as a dancing cat game, Cat Quest inspired by Zelda/Final Fantasy

Gentlebros CEO Desmond Wong revealed some interesting tidbits about Cat Quest in a recent interview. Most notably, the game actually started out as something else altogether. The team was working on an idea called Copycat, a dancing game where players would have to mimic the moves of another player via a cat avatar. The game made it to prototype phase, but was eventually shelved/morphed into Cat Quest.

“[The dancing game] didn’t work out because we quickly realized that none of us have music tendencies or music backgrounds. So it was really hard to design the game. We kept iterating on the concept, kept changing it. But we really liked the cat characters that we created. Slowly, the idea started getting more RPG elements until it became the full-fledged RPG that you see today.”

Wong also revealed the inspirations behind the game.

“We all grew up playing Zelda. We all grew up playing Final Fantasy. We were really influenced by games from both the East and West. So they influence the games we make as well because we really like elements from all these games and … we just thought it’d be great to combine this stuff and put it into our own game.”
