A Space-Cat Survival and Base-Building Game

MewnBase is a game about wandering around a barren planet, finding resources and surviving. Scavenge around for items to keep you fed. Build up your base with new modules to replenish your suit power and oxygen.

Because MewnBase is in active development, there are definitely bugs, and features are subject to change. Many parts of the design I'm still working on figuring out as I go! I try to post new builds every couple weeks.

Features so far

  • Explore a randomly generated planet.
  • Collect resources and carry them in your inventory.
  • Craft new tools and items.
  • Discover and research strange artifacts.
  • Expand your base by building more habitat modules.
  • Manage your base's power and air supply.
  • Planet day/night cycles.
  • Supported languages: English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Russian, Portuguese, Turkish.

I also keep a public Trello board if you're interested in seeing what I'm currently working on / planning.

macOS note: There's currently some issues with the macOS version where sometimes it wont launch - still looking into these bugs.

Also, if you're trying to play the Mac version and it's just getting stuck on a blank screen, try downloading and installing the game through the itch desktop app.
