This cartoony cats vs. dogs RTS asserts that humanity’s companions cannot live in harmony

As part of the 2022 Realms Deep digital event, developers Slipgate Ironworks and 2B Games have announced their collaborative project, Warpaws⁠ (opens in new tab)—a cartoony RTS about a theoretical 20th century conflict between humankind’s beloved companions, cats and dogs. It presents itself as a tactics-first, more streamlined RTS with a “focus on unit management, with no resources or complicated base building.”

That last claim immediately piqued my interest, as my neanderthal brain can barely process the demands of most RTSes and my actions per minute (APM) leaves a lot to be desired. Instead of hoarding resources, unlocking new units is tied to capturing objectives on the game map.
