Which is better, cats or dogs?

Warpaws is a real-time strategy game where cats and dogs battle it out in a lightweight alternate world using WWII-inspired weaponry. Wage all-out war, shown through the lens of classic cartoon-inspired art with slapstick humor. Will you achieve military perfection or will your soldiers have a hard day in hell?

Inspired by the legendary Z

Unleash strategic carnage across five battle-torn biomes. Deploy spies for stealthy confrontations, send in bazooka-wielding soldiers to dominate sand dune skirmishes, or assemble a mix of gunners, engineers, and flaming pyros to suit any engagement. Each unit is autonomous; instead of replacing them with direct upgrades, all characters have their own specialties.

Primary goal: Have fun!

Fight in a single-player campaign or compete against other players in a variety of multiplayer modes. Call on a trusted ally and take down AI forces in co-op mode, compete in online matches against modes, or become the king of the hill champion. Master each map type – Desert, Polar, Lava, City, Islands – and take advantage of their different terrains. Destroy frozen lakes to drown platoons, lead your opponents into snowstorms or even trick them into swimming with sharks.
