Here at Mega Cat, we make original games for classic systems- at PAX West this year, weâ€TMre bringing Fork Parkerâ€TMs Crunch Out to the SNES; itâ€TMs a game that brings attention to the problem of crunch- developers being pushed too hard to meet deadlines, resulting in detrimental effects to their health and well-being. This problem has plagued the tech space for decades, and is especially prevalent in the gaming industry.

Developed in association with Devolver Digital and Take This, Fork Parkerâ€TMs Crunch Out is coming to the SNES and will be playable at PAX West at Booth #654- weâ€TMre also showing off Little Medusa for the SNES and Sega Genesis. This Greek mythology inspired action puzzler brings petrifying fun to your favorite 16-bit consoles.

The developers are available to discuss the games- and the very real issue of crunch in the gaming industry- send an e-mail to [email protected] to schedule an interview!

Fork Parkerâ€TMs Crunch Out

One of the biggest problems facing game developers is crunch and burnout- in Fork Parkerâ€TMs Crunch Out for the SNES, you push employees to the edge in pursuit of profits. Raise capital! Pay interns in experience! Questionably motivate errant employees, and keep profits in the black!

Developed in association with Take This, Fork Parkerâ€TMs Crunch Out aims to bring attention to the issue of crunch- along with a bit of humor.

Little Medusa

Available on the NES, SNES and Sega Genesis, Little Medusa is an action puzzler that draws inspiration from Greek mythology; you play as Artemiza, a goddess-turned-gorgon in a mission to save Mount Olympus from the monstrous Titans. Solve puzzles, turn enemies to stone and uncover secrets.

Mega Cat Games will be at Booth #654 - shoot us an e-mail- [email protected]- to schedule an interview or for more information on our games!
