Race the Sun initially released in 2013 for PC, before coming to consoles in 2014. It then swooped its way onto the Wii U in 2015, and Xbox One in 2017.

Developed by Flippfly, Race the Sun is an endless runner where players take control of a solar-powered spaceship. It’s up to you to reach the end of the stage before the sun sets.

Flippfly is finally back with another endless flyer involving spaceships, however, this time cats are the pilots! Meow!

The game in question is called Whisker Squadron and while you can see the Race the Sun DNA, this procedurally-generated endless dogfighter (that’s ironic) is clearly inspired by the likes of Star Fox. This is, of course, fantastic.

With your spaceships piloted by cats, and accompanied by your squadron of fellow felines, you will swoop through obstacles, shoot down enemy spaceships, and encounter boss battles. 

The game’s official description reads as follows: “A fresh take on forward scrolling aerial combat! Choose your pilot and fight your way through procedurally-generated worlds and epic, randomized boss fights. You’ve got one life, and your tactical upgrade choices will be crucial to your success in this aerial roguelike.”

Judging from the gameplay trailer, Whisker Squadron looks like it might be a lot of fun. You’ll also be able to change to and from your squadron of cats, each with their own unique skills and abilities. Check out the reveal trailer below!
