Following the success of previous titles such as Simon’s Cat: Crunch Time and Simon’s Cat: Pop Time, the latest title inspired by the frisky feline, Simon’s Cat: Story Time, has launched today exclusively on Apple Arcade.
Developed by Tactile Games, Story Time sees Simon and his cat face their biggest challenge yet. When the tranquillity of suburban life is threatened by a huge building site, they mobilize the neighbors to help restore the mysterious wasteland before the diggers destroy it all. As the clock ticks down, players will solve challenging match-3 puzzles to help the community rebuild the gardens under the critical eye of the curmudgeonly next-door neighbor, Mr. Potts, who has a secret ancestral connection to the wasteland which he intends to keep buried forever.
By completing puzzles, players will earn stars to unlock the next phase of the story and win coins to purchase game boosts to help complete difficult levels. Fans will meet a huge cast of in-game animal and human characters and discover the true meaning of community spirit in this adorable, immersive addition to the Simon’s Cat franchise.
“I’ve had great fun coming up with this game, all the ideas and new characters, and I can’t wait for you to find out what I’ve been up to,” said Simon Tofield, the “Simon” and creator of Simon’s Cat.
Based on Tofield’s original webtoons, the brand enjoys international success across multiple categories including entertainment, gaming, publishing and apparel. Simon’s Cat mobile games have in excess of 20 million downloads, more than 90 million digital sticker downloads and over 2 million books sold across 30 countries. Simon’s Cat has over 18 million fans and subscribers across social platforms, with the classic shorts totalling more than 2 billion views.
