Why center the game around cats?

The concept for Nyan Heroes was born from the development team’s shared love and admiration for cats.
  • Nyan & Neko: A nod to the Japanese "meow" and their term for "cat". We're celebrating cat culture in every pixel.
  • Nyan=Meow // Neko=Cat
  • Mech Dynamics: These aren't your ordinary slow mechs. Powered by the agility of cats, imagine Evangelion-style dynamism in every battle.
  • Cat Above All: From aesthetics to game mechanics, expect feline flair. This is our pledge, our tribute to our beloved feline.

Will the price change when the game leaves Early Access?

Currently, the game is free to play, and there are no plans to change this approach.

What kind of 'In-App Purchases' can we expect?

We are focussing on making the core gameplay fun and engaging right now, so we haven't started planning or designing what items we can sell or what you would want.
Current ideas include 'Cosmetic items' and 'Customization Items' such as Mech and Weapon skins, 'Consumable items' (if they make sense) and a potential battle pass system.
However, this list is not final, is completely subject to change and all IAP plans will be communicated to our users when we start to finalize function and fit.

What is the IAP refund policy?

As we don't have an IAP design or item list yet, we have not defined a refund policy.
While it is possible we will have a 'No Refund' policy it is too early to say, and would also be subject to change.

Can I provide feedback and bug reports?

We encourage all users to provide feedback and bug reports. Communication channels will be provided via Discord.
