Catopia: Rush brings an endless amount of charm and fun to mobile devices with engaging, arcadey dungeon-delving in an effort to restore a broken kingdom after a devastating attack by a powerful sorcerer. Created by the talented developers at Supercolony in Irvine, CA, this portrait-oriented title features more than 50 cat heroes to collect with more heroes planned for future updates. The game will be available on both iOS and Android platforms.
To ensure we can provide the best experience for our users, here are those release dates.
4/21/2021 - Soft Launch
6/2/2021 - Global Launch
Following our Beta test at the start of the year, we have developed several new features that we expect our players to be really excited about.
For starters, we have altered the general team composition. A team now consists of one Hero Cat and three Ally Cats of varying archetypes: Tank, Support, Mage, and Warrior. Hero Cats are the only ones in a team that can take damage, creating a dynamic similar to bullet-hell games. We are also expanding character customization by adding a talent and equipment system.
Stages can now be completed multiple times with a rating system for each. This ties into the scoring system and our improved Leaderboards. Players can now build up combos and there is even a Perfect Bonus for completing a stage without taking a single hit. Further adding to the replay value, we have improved Expedition stages and specialized daily challenges that test team strategy and player skill.
These are just some of the improvements we’ve made already! Catopia: Rush is a game that will grow over time and we look forward to providing a fun and rewarding experience to our players.
Anyone who would like to stay updated may follow us on various social media channels or check out our official website. We also recently launched a funny, yet wholesome webcomic, Catopia University, which was created by artist Nanhee and is available now on Tapas and Webtoon for free.
Attached you will find lots of assets but if there is anything else you may need please feel free to reach out to us. We are available for interviews, Q&As, and more. We also recently put out this fun meme-inspired song starring everyone's favorite bread cat, Lucky!
