Catadel is a charming medieval real time strategy/simulation game where you help a colony of cats build and defend their settlements, whilst also making sure they are happy.
Blending real time strategy with life simulation, Catadel focuses on building, managing and defending small scale settlements full of cute little cats. The RTS elements of the game are quite light in comparison to the likes of Age of Empires and it takes place on a much smaller scale, but that’s not a bad thing – it allows you to get to know your furry little villagers and focus on the life sim elements of the game.
Unlike most cats the furry felines in Catadel are pretty obedient and will work away at any jobs you give them. However, they also have needs (food, rest and recreation). If you fail to give them these things then they’ll get unhappy and leave, causing your population and productivity to drop. You also help create careers for your citizens, with you giving them apprenticeships in vocations such as farming or architecture, with them learning the job as they work alongside more qualified cats. As you progress through the levels there are new careers for your cats to follow and more buildings to upgrade your little cat village with.
It’s still early in development, but there’s a lot to like about Catadel’s blend of real time strategy and life simulation. You won’t see any massive battles here, but it’s a very pleasant place to chill out in and help build your little cat settlements where you know every inhabitant by name.
