Fort Meow is a new pillow-fort-based puzzle adventure from developer Upper Class Walrus and publisher Surprise Attack Games (as also seen in IGM’s regular Screenshot Weekly segment). The game tells the story of a young girl named Nia, who goes to visit her grandparents. When Nia arrives, she finds her grandparent’s house empty; traveling up to their attic she finds her grandfather’s journal, only to be attacked by a horde of cats after beginning to read it.
Players must protect Nia from an onslaught of cats by building a fort out of furniture and items found around the house. Players can build their forts by using simple drag and drop controls. But beware, as the placement of the fort’s defenses can cause the entire structure to collapse. Players then explore the house to discover over 20 unique items, layering the fort with pillows, grandfather clocks, and more, while unraveling the mystery of what brought so many cats to the attic in the first place, and what Nia’s grandfather was hiding in the pages of his journal. Each item has independent physics and special attributes in order to defend against cats who have their own unique abilities.
