If that’s not enough, this weekend will see the second official Steam Next Fest Live Broadcast hit at 3pm BST/4pm CEST/10am EDT/7am PDT on Saturday 14 October!

Features of Cats on Duty
Tactical Tower Defense: Defend your territory with a brutal arsenal of weaponry. From powerful rifles that reach the enemy at a distance to death-defying assassins with blades sharper than any groomer's scissors, strategically place your feline soldiers to ensure victory on the battlefield.
Unleash the Cattitude: Prepare for epic cat fights, playful antics, and adorable meows as your feline warriors show off their unique personalities and unleash their special abilities. Brace yourself for a blend of sass and strategy that will keep you entertained throughout the battles.
Match-3 Mayhem: It's not just tower defense; it's tower defense with a twist of addictive match-3 gameplay! Connect gems on the resource field to receive currency and purchase cat towers. Swap and combine cats on the battlefield to create upgraded towers and unleash devastating attacks. Inspired by Plants vs Zombies and Tower Swap, Cats on Duty takes the best of the genre and enhances it with captivating match-3 mechanics.
Customize and Improve your Squad: Unlock and collect a variety of quirky cat characters, each with their own strengths and abilities. From snipers and assassins to shotgun-toting Rambo-like felines and even a battle version of Puss in Boots, tailor your team to your playstyle and create the ultimate squad of kitty heroes. Gather three kittens in a row and witness the birth of a SUPER BATTLE CAT!
Epic Enemies: Face off against formidable foes that will make your whiskers tremble. Zombies, skeletons, spiders, Baba Yaga, and EPIC bosses await your tactical prowess. Sharpen your claws, load your shotguns, and show them who's the real top cat on the battlefield!
Unique Environments: Explore diverse and meticulously crafted levels, from deceptively cozy suburban backyards to mysterious desert. Each environment presents unique challenges that require cunning strategy to emerge victorious.
