    OK took a chance and purchased this on steam yesterday and so far its a real pleasant surprise

    Basic premise is your a cat separated from the pack and you have moderate platform V Fetch and carry quests to get back ... Its simple yet surprisingly fun

    Game looks beautiful and the animation on the Cat is frankly just superb

    its not a brain melter by any stretch but so far had a huge amount of fun

    Here is the trailer (PS5 Version)

    As a cat person, this does look very interesting!

    Really quite enjoying and find myself stopping to claw at carpets every now and then it really is extremely well animated.

    I will always prefer a Kilrathi, but it does look good. If it ever comes to GOG and I have money, I will buy it.

    We have three cats and may be getting a 4th one soon. (Only because the oldest one has a form of cancer and may not be around much longer.)

    I do prefer cats ... but ... only because my schedule doesn't work well with the attention that a dog needs. I have had dogs in the past...so, I know where I'm coming from there. My daughter-in-law is also a cat-person..and works at an animal clinic. She might go nuts over this game!

    You have to admit the way they animated the 3D graphics of the cat, it looks a bit too good to be true. I mean it is so lifelike!

    Yeah, sorry to hear that. :(

    This game looks cute and laid back, although I understand that it is a pretty short one.

    My son and daughter-in-law just celebrated their 20th Wedding Anniversary the 6th of this month. She had a couple of cats when they got married. So, although I could likely name all the ones we've had since then, you can imagine we've had a few over the years. The big one that has the life issue now is, I believe, 11 years old now.

    I DO, however, remember the names of the two that joined our family at first: Chucky, and Wendy. :)

    Partly I think because its kind of linear but in a good way, theres not a huge amount of running around trying to figure stuff out more of an enjoyment that your destination is ahead and you know your getting there.

    My first cat (49 years ago) was Mr Timnus and was an absolute hellion, possibly because I named her Mister :)

    I finished the game last night. It's a beauty! Not very difficult, but still fun and engaging, due to great atmosphere, intriguing backstory, likeable characters, beautiful or fun details and very pretty graphics, mostly with very good animation to boot. Even if it can be a tad gloomy:

    Don't judge the game by that screenshot though, it's far from being all doom and gloom. While the setting is a post-apocalyptic dystopia, the game is packed with warm interactions.

    BTW, I've seen that reviewers mostly talk about 5 hours, it took me around 8, although I did take my sweet time with some sections.

    IvanV pretty much summed uo everything I liked about it and I think I took about 6 and a half hours to finish. Is kind of loosely left open for a sequel as well.
