You can download the game here

Paw Pals is a game where you manage a bunch of kitties trapped on the top of a tree. Your goal is to investigate enough of the big book of "How to get down of a tree for dummy kitties" while making sure your kitties have enough food.


But here is the catch: Your kitties have personalities and some of them may not be too happy about working with others threfore making them feel more and more stressed. High levels of stress will make the kitties work a lot less so take care of the kitties!


This game was made for the GMTK Game Jam 2021. The theme for the jam was "Joined Together".

realy cute but the camera sucks

Reminds me of a game i would play on my old 3DS, I love it

Cute game that surprised me with how addictive it could get! Tutorial at the start was a bit annoying: I'd prefer that it only move forward when I click, as a lot of the time when I was still reading it jumped forward without me clicking and I had to restart so I could read it all. The way the game presents information could be a bit better as well: could really stand to have some sort of event feed to give reports, especially balloon reports which I could never read because I was always working on other stuff and they're tucked away from sight and disappear so fast. I also didn't really know what fish did and why/how it was depleting and how that had an effect? Would love to see feedback/reports from the game on what is happening (if it's supposed to be food, maybe if I'm out it should play a stomach growling and put status symbols over cats to show they are hungry or stressed or whatever). Basically there was a lot of confusion over many aspects of the game for me. Despite all that, though, I found myself wanting to play more and more as I tried to build up a good set of teams that worked well with each other based on their personality traits and such. I liked their little pop-ups that told you if they were enjoying each others company: that's exactly the type of fun feedback I wanted for all the other stuff I was confused about in the game, haha! Overall, it was definitely a little half-baked due to confusion and repetition, but I still had a decent time, so kudos!

its cute but a little confusing at first

It's a very fun game! Relaxing, easy but it gets hard on the progress. I admire these kind of games.

But honestly, when I tried to get all of the achievements it gets a little annoying. Of course there are flaws and this is only my opinion. The texts of the cats, I can't really see much because of it. I also noticed some cats wants to be with some cats that have a specific traits. It's frustrating but I like that spice of the game. There are also some glitches, the cat sometimes is hiding under the hot air balloon? xD But I can still grab them so it's fine.

Keep up the good work! I hope my opinions help ^^
