Have you ever wondered where your cat disappears to at night? One second, it’s zipping across the floor in the dead of night, or casually stepping on your sleeping face. Then, poof, it’s gone. Well, chances are, it has gone into outer space to take part in a sushi eating competition. This is Ganbatte.
Thanks to the awesome power that is VR and Mimicry Games, we can now experience this secret aspect of feline life. In Ganbatte, you will take on the role of a cat whose soul mission is to be the very best at the intergalactic sushi-eating competition.
Plenty to Go Around
Ganbatte just hit early access on April 19, but the game already has plenty of family-friendly competitive fun. You can play single-player against AI, or online with up to three other contestants. Across the 28 challenges that feature 8 different variety of sushi, your goal is to eat the most and rack up enough points to crush your opponents and claw your way up the leaderboards.
While the gameplay doesn’t look overly complex, it does require some cat-like reflexes. The various types of sushi are worth different amounts of points. You will want to snatch those up before the next cat does. You can also pull off combos to gain extra points.
What space, sushi, cat competition would be complete without some cat-centric social interactions? No worries, you can express yourself with any of the four available avatar emotes available. Just watch the trailer, it’s adorable. Ganbatte is available for the Oculus and Vive and will feature cross platform support. You can pick it up right now, on Steam, for $13.49 with the 10% discount that runs until April 26.
