PAX Unplugged 2022 coverage: Quilts & Cats of Calico

Monster Couch studio is excited to announce the development of a new game: Quilts & Cats of Calico. The game is based on the puzzly tile-laying board game Calico published by Flatout Games (a.o. Cascadia, Verdant). The game is the second board game adaptation to strenghten the studio's portfolio, following the enthusiastically received Wingspan (over 90% positive reviews on Steam). Quilts & Cats of Calico will be released on Steam and its date is yet to be announced.

Watch the announcement teaser below:

About Quilts & Cats of Calico

Immerse in a warm, cosy world full of cuddly cats. Here the quilt bends under the weight of their paws and loud purring can be heard. It's a world full of patterns and designs awaiting the master quilt maker.

Quilts & Cats of Calico is a wholesome digital adaptation of the award-winning puzzle board game for 1-4 players. Meet the adorable cats and sew the coziest quilts. Compete against other players in multiplayer gameplay, play solo or delve into the story of a tailor battling a large corporation.

The player's main task is to make a quilt from patterned fabric scraps. By smartly combining the colours and patterns of the scraps, the player can not only score points for the completed design but also sew on buttons and attract adorable cats, who have their own preferences for bedding patterns.

Quilts & Cats of Calico will provide you with the corresponding gameplay mode:

  • Multiplayer, during which you can invite friends or play ranked matches against random players. Online gameplay will include weekly challenges and player rankings.

  • Solo mode allows you to face AI of varying difficulty levels and is the perfect tool to hone your skills in a relaxed atmosphere

  • Story mode campaign. An extraordinary world inspired by the works of Studio Ghibli awaits you. Here cats can shatter even the most stone-cold hearts. Take on the role of an itinerant tailor who travels the war-stricken world and sews quilts. Stand up to a ruthless corporation that threatens your guild. Create quilts, perfect your craft and help those you meet on your journey.

At Quilts & Cats of Calico, cats are active during your games. They are not just interested in what patterns you use on your quilt. They actively respond to what you do and have their own characters. They will lazily observe the board, romp and run around, and sometimes fall into a blissful nap. You can interact with them during the game, pet them, and shoo them away when they get in the way.

The game is full of cats, but there could always be more! In Quilts & Cats of Calico, you can create your own, making your game even more wholesome! You can give it a name, choose the colour of its fur and put on different outfits. If you wish, it will appear on the board during your gameplay. It will also be possible to change the background of the game and choose different quilt patterns.

The music in Quilts & Cats of Calico was created by Pawel Gorniak, the composer responsible, among others, for the soundtrack in Wingspan. Thanks to it, you will not only be able to deeply feel the atmosphere of the game but let yourself be carried away by blissful relaxation.
