The orange cat will return in three new games with “varied genres” promises Microids, which has signed a new partnership with the license holders.
The French studio Microids, which in a few years has become THE studio for comic book and cartoon licenses (like Asterix, the Marsupilami, the Smurfs or even Grendizer), had promised an equally prosperous year 2022. And it starts well since the editor announces having signed for three games about the lasagna-loving cat.
A partnership has been signed with ViacomCBS Consumer Products, new owners of the license created by comic book author Jim Davis. Alain Milly, editorial director at Microids, explains:
The signing of this agreement with ViacomCBS Consumer Products delights us! Garfield is a renowned and family license that fits perfectly into our catalog focused on recognized franchises and the general public. Following our previous successful collaborations on games like Garfield: Wild Ride and Garfield Kart Furious Racing, we are proud to be trusted again by ViacomCBS Consumer Products on these three new games.
Players will apparently be able to experience three new adventures, who will explore “various genres” over the next few years. Personally, I bet on a shooter, a roguelike with deckbuilding and a lasagna simulator.
