King, the company that gave the world Candy Crush, has today launched a brand new game, Shuffle Cats, which is King’s first ever live multiplayer card game.
Shuffle Cats takes place on the rooftops of London in the 1920s, and stars a gang of crafty and competitive street cats who are all trying to win their way to the best Card Clubs in town and progress along Lucky Lane.
The free-to-play game features a new style of gameplay, where players around the world get to compete against each other in real time in an updated mobile version of the traditional card game Rummy.
Players will first be dealt seven cards each, then have to create as many Melds as possible on the game board, with the winner being the first player to reach 10 points. Winners earn Gems, which are the key currency of the game, and which are used to gain entry into one of the eight Card Clubs on Lucky Lane.
The cast of characters in the game include Montie, the friendly mentor to new players, and Walter, the mini-game master and maker of Lucky Charms.
Shuffle Cats has several new features, multiple game modes, and social chat mechanics, so that you can communicate with your friends and rivals across the game board.
Carolin Krenzer, Head of Studio at King London said: "Launching Shuffle Cats is an exciting move for us, especially as it's our first live multiplayer card game. We're always looking to broaden and diversify our portfolio and create new, engaging games – Shuffle Cats serves as a perfect example of this. It's also great news for those of us with a competitive streak as you can now test your card skills against players from all over the world in real time and communicate with opponents through the new chat features."
Make no mistake about it, these adorably cute kitties are set to be huge!
