We caught James Deighan, Founder of Mega Cat Studios, pruning his bonsai plant out in his backyard. He had this to say “Games take inspiration from real-world activities and turn them into something fantastic: such as gardening or even invasive species we fight in on a global scale like the kudzu vine. As game developers, we love to take the mundane into something extraordinary. We’re excited to team up with  Pie for Breakfast Studios as they share our vision of making great games that put creativity and enjoyment at the forefront.” Developer Chris Totten said, “Kudzu is a love letter to classic GameBoy games, such as Link’s Awakening and Pokemon. It will transport you into a world of danger, mystery, and excitement. Backers will be thrilled with our reward offerings, ranging from physical copies of the game, dioramas, goat plushies, and even custom machetes to take on Kudzu in the real world!” 
Kudzu is set to release in late 2023, and we certainly can’t wait to see the fruits of labour the developers have put into the game. In addition to a smorgasbord of killer backer rewards, fans can enter to win a prototype copy of the game on Gleam: https://gleam.io/ouGGk/win-a-copy-of-kudzu-a-brand-new-original-game-for-gameboy
