Game news 7 games where you play an adorable potty cat
Because they are simply fantastic creatures, cats are regularly the heroes of playful productions. It is therefore natural that we offer you a selection of 7 games worn by these star felines.
Le Chat-griné: Night In The Woods
Cult feline of the independent video game universe, Mae is the heroine of Night in the Woods, a point’n click adventure game released in 2017 and acclaimed by critics. Back in her native village, this 20-year-old young woman returns to her former life with some difficulty. She must indeed combine her daily life with worried parents and childhood friends who have taken new paths. Under its rather candid airs, the game deals with very serious subjects, linking reflections on death, politics and coming of age. The experience, rated 16/20 in our columns, enjoys a very solid script and an impeccable soundtrack. On the gameplay side, just count on a few interactions, contextual mini-games and a very slight hint of platforms.
Cat will bleed: Gato Roboto
If you’d rather be a cat armed to the teeth, then Gato Roboto is probably for you. A cute little feline with an armored suit must progress in an underground alien world obviously infested with obstacles and formidable enemies. Your objective: to save your shipwrecked captain aboard his spaceship. Sometimes you will have to leave your advanced technology for a moment in order to progress through unexplored tunnels and get your hands on valuable weapons. This completely crossed out 8-bit metroidvania is served by Devolver.
The Skill Cat Tree: Cat Quest I & II
If your heart tells you to instead be a valiant knight with great responsibility, you better take a look at the Cat Quest saga. Immersed in the hostile open world of Félingard, your mission is to free your sister from the clutches of the terrible Drakoth. You will first have to venture through the Minet Plains and the Ronron Mountains to achieve your objectives. Despite a rather redundant aspect, the popcorn adventure had pleased for its addictive potential, its immediate handling and of course for its cute and shimmering universe. We had thus awarded a score of 14/20 to the first episode.
Geochalisation: A Street Cat’s Tale
Adventure at a low price, A Street Cat’s Tale invites you to play as a poor kitten who has lost her mother. Our helpless and hungry furball must explore the vastness of the city for sustenance and survival. And do not hesitate to do a little charm to the inhabitants to persuade them to feed you or simply to take care of you. Your meetings have their own problems, it will sometimes be necessary to come to their aid in order to get a helping hand in return. Several endings will be possible depending on the path you choose to take.
So, cat investigates? Blacksad: Under The Skin
Blacksad: Under the Skin is intended for lovers of investigations and narrative adventures. More atypical than our other tomcats, the hero of this game is an anthropomorph. Well known in the comic book universe, John Blacksad is a lone private investigator, archetypal film noir antihero. In this video game journey, he must lead the investigation in a boxing club where the corpse of Joe Dunn, the owner, was found hanged. Rated 13/20 in our columns, the game suffered at the release of a wide range of bugs and technical issues, but on the other hand offered a rather charming scenario.
The Slug: Rain World
In Rain World, you will meet a very special creature, half cat, half slug. This single player platform game tasks you with progressing through a broken ecosystem. Separated from your family by a devastating flood, you are on your own. You play as both the prey and the hunter, meaning you have to feed yourself while avoiding creatures larger than you. The game had collected a score of 14/20 in our columns, in particular for its nice artistic direction, its successful post-apo atmosphere and its convincing animations. Expect a somewhat repetitive and particularly arduous journey all the same.
When is cat coming? Stray
Particularly awaited by lovers of cute cats or by fans of the Annapurna catalog, Stray is an adventure game scheduled for early 2022. In the third person, we follow a stray cat who evolves in a vast futuristic universe. Our little hero is accompanied by B-12, a charming drone that serves as his companion, translator and even weapon against the Zurks, damn hostile organic creatures. On the gameplay side, expect plenty of platforming phases, a handful of puzzles, and a bit of action.
