Simple lesson: Don’t cross your cat or they’ll set a series of diabolical death traps for you
When you’re trying to put together your plan for marketing your game, a smart, cute, or clever hook is always helpful. From experience I’d say that anything involving cats is sure to get some glances, but in this case I’m glad to see someone rolling with their more vindictive side. This is an absolutely brutal game that’s all about timing and precision as you try to survive a series of gnarly death traps of all sorts that will reduce you to a bloody mess, all care of your cat that feels you have slighted it… and I’d say that checks out. What I do really appreciate here is that the action is all set on top of a terrific soundtrack that actually provides you with some assistance in feeling the timing of the traps, aside from just making the game a bit more enjoyable anyway. The most critical aspect here though is control, and thankfully everything is tight enough here that I never felt that anything but my ineptitude reduced my human to hamburger. It isn’t by any means revolutionary, but it has a sense of humor, knows what it wants to do, and does a solid job of executing it all… in this case somewhat literally.
