Even though the whole Alice in Wonderland saga has no doubt inspired many a book, show or game From over the years, we’re not sure any would have been as surreal and weird as the newly released Catie in MeowmeowLand.
Available right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC through both GOG and Steam, Catie in MeowmeowLand from the ARTillery and Blowfish Studios teams is a point and click adventure that has been put together with Alice’s adventures in mind.
Arriving in comical form, with a £9.99 price tag attached (that’s the Xbox price tag by the way, expect other formats to vary slightly), Catie in MeowmeowLand will have you heading down a rabbit hole, dragged down by a huge limb. It’s here where you follow Catie, as they explore storybook styled worlds; lands filled to the brim by all manner of creatures and puzzles. This is a wondrous world, full of interactables, items, animations and more.
The land you are traversing is the titular MeowmeowLand and it’s here where you’ll traverse the mushroom forest, the underground astronomy tower (yep, really), a magical lake and more. It’s in these areas where the likes of the Giant Cheshire Cat will come out grinning, the Waring Pirate Fish and the Crazy Blue Elephant will be up for a chat.
