Homer, Frey’s cat in Forspoken, isn’t starving

Square Enix provided us our very first great take a look at Forspoken’s story and gameplay throughout Sony’s PlayStation Display on Thursday, revealing the new dream world being established by the Last Dream 15 group at Luminescent Productions. However it was Homer, cherished feline of lead character Frey, that took the hearts of audiences. The problem came when fans started wondering, “What’s going to happen to Homer while Frey is out kicking ass the entire game?”

On Twitter and YouTube, fans seemed excited about Forspoken, but concerned about Homer. “What happens to the cat?!?!” they asked. “I need closure for Homer…” one fan pleaded. “I 100% agree with everyone else, I can’t handle the guilt of letting my cat starve to death in my apartment while I play with dragons,” worried another.

But a new tweet from the Forspoken Twitter account has soothed fans.

Homer, the talkative Balinese house feline with big blue eyes, will not be starving to death during your journey as Frey, it seems. While assurances are certainly appreciated for those of us with animal anxiety, it’s still not clear what Homer will be up to. Will she adventure alongside Frey as some of the YouTube comments suggest? Or will Homer get to relax at home with a cat sitter? The answer we’re hoping for is probably quite different than the one Homer would want.

Forspoken is a third-person action game in which Frey enters a mysterious world called Athia and wields a magic bracelet to battle dragons with magic. Forspoken doesn’t have a release date yet, however Square Enix and Luminous Productions will launch it for PlayStation 5 and Windows PC at some point in the spring of 2022.
