Cato, The Avatar Of Mind
Meet one of the many fascinating characters in the RedCat Multiverse
This week, we’d like to unveil another character from the RedCat Multiverse! To go along with this, we’ve added the #multiverse-characters channel to announce the new characters to our Discord server, and the #character-forum to talk about them. This where you (you) can ask us (the game team) questions about the characters directly, or just talk about the ones you like.
Without further adieu, meet Cato!
Cato is the Avatar of Mind, the purest embodiment of self. When I conceived the conceptual avatars, like Cato, I knew it was going to be a thing to make characters out of them. I like a challenge and so does my team, so Casey (one of our game designers) put some work into Cato and gave them some direction. As you can see, Cato is unusual-looking, because it’s way more interesting than say a smart-looking person with a big brain. I had fun envisioning the conversation between Cato and the group mind known as Unity in the flash fiction. Two conversationalists, but one with many mouths.
As a collectible, Cato is a Common character, which means they’ll be more widely available.
When we launched our website, we announced three characters without fanfare, and we don’t want to leave them out in the cold. I’ll talk about them with our new character announcements until we get caught up.
Pliplik has been a lot of fun. If there’s a character who already deserves a plushie, it’s this little guy. He’s a cute floating blue critter who also happens to be a fantastic chef. When I originally conceived Plikplik, he was a small furry thing from Alpha Centauri who I felt could be a good secondary mascot. Lori (another game designer) decided to run with the idea that he was a cosmic culinarian, and I had a lot of fun writing his flash fiction with that direction. It’s not every day you get to tell a story about a cooking emergency rescued by an alien.
As a collectible, Plikplik is a Rare character, which means he’ll take a little work or a little luck to add to your collection.
I hope you like them! We’ve had a lot of fun creating them. Join our Discord to discuss these characters with the rest of our community.
Until next time,
