Cat Quest - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, the entire team was originally from Koei Tecmo, a Japanese game publisher most well known for games like Dynasty Warriors and Ninja Gaiden. Cumulatively, we had more than 10 years of experience when we first started.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The process we took to come up with the idea was the most challenging. In fact, we documented that process here: https://thegentlebros.com/blog/general/story-open-world-rpg-actually-started-dancing-game/

Desmond Wong is one of the co-founders of The Gentlebros, a multi-award winning studio. Having been an artist and game designer for over 15 years, Desmond has worked on games ranging from the casual mobile to the huge AAA. Now he works on the Cat Quest games and tries to think of cat puns to insert into it all day long.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Considering Cat Quest was inspired by games like Crashlands and Final Fantasy, I would be remiss not to mention them!

How long have you been working on this app?

Cat Quest took three people about one and a half years to make!

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

An open-world experience on the go.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

. Most RPGs on mobile at that point were very linear affairs. You would go into a level, do a thing, get a reward and then go to the next level. With Cat Quest, we wanted to bring the open-world experience common in PC and console games into the mobile market. In that way, I think we succeeded and ended up making it so accessible that anyone could play it. That is what we're most proud of!

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

Considering we just launched Cat Quest II on Apple Arcade and other platforms, our plans are to make more games in the Cat Quest universe. Nine in fact! Why? Because cats have nine lives!

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?
