ALPHACAT NOW IN ORBIT! CATS IN SPACE MAKE FOR MATCH-THREE BLISS

PLANO, TEXAS (September 1, 2016) – Meow is the purrfect time to head to the iTunes, Google Play or Amazon store and download AlphaCat, a brand new match-three space strategy game with a frisky twist, from KingsIsle Entertainment.

In AlphaCat you explore 90 constantly evolving planets as the captain of a ship named the Furball-1 in a quest to defend Planet Whiskar. As the AlphaCat, you’ll be finding, assembling and leveling up a crew from over 60 characters. The captain and crew triumph over a large array of devious enemies through use of the popular match-three mechanic. Once your friends start playing, you can also send them resources to help on their own adventures.

AlphaCat is a dream realized for Kevin Wienecke, Lead Designer. “AlphaCat is a game I’ve always wanted to make,” said Wienecke. “There’s nothing more cute, ridiculous and hilarious than cats in space.”

Josef Hall, vice president and creative director at KingsIsle Entertainment, explained the process that took the idea from concept to mobile game. “At KingsIsle we periodically host an internal competition where all of our developers can spend a few days bringing their own game ideas to life,” Hall said. “It’s exciting to see one of those games progress to a world-wide release.”

AlphaCat is the second new mobile game to be released by KingsIsle, and two more mobile games have been soft-launched in Canada this past year. KingsIsle’s CEO, Elie Akilian, explained the exciting plans. “All of our upcoming releases are entirely different from one another and feature a variety of different game mechanics,” said Akilian. “There’s going to be even more new games with even more ways to enjoy KingsIsle’s unique brand of humor and entertainment.”

AlphaCat is now available worldwide in four different languages. Download links for both iOS and Android devices are provided from the website www.alphacatgame.com.
