Max & Maya: Cat Simulator might not be the most authentic thing ever

As the owner/chosen human/minion of two twitchy felines, I'm fairly certain that at least 80% of the things shown in the trailer for Max & Maya: Cat Simulator are factually inaccurate, though I wish that wasn't the case. The idea of cat civilization rising to fill the power vacuum in the event of a zombie apocalypse is an amusing one. Due for release sometime in…

Cats and crafts in gorgeous Mineko’s Night Market

The Japanese island of Tashirojima is known as 'Cat Island' for its huge population of fuzzfriends outnumbering the human population. Even more magical than that is the cat-covered island in Mineko's Night Market [official site], an upcoming explore-o-craft-a-vendor life sim with more cats than you can shake a laser pointer at. Meet cats! Befriend a cat god! Grow cats from plants! Ride cats in races!…

Catty Contract Killers Go Wild in Badass Inc.

I have to say, guys. Badass Inc. [official site] is the cat's meow. And not just because the protagonist for this free point-and-click adventure is "a sleek, stylish, feline predator that trades in scalps and briefcases full of cash." A Ludum Dare entry crafted by the inimitable Sébastien 'deepnight' Bénard, Badass Inc will have you taking on an assignment for Ludum-Tek. (hehe). Your goal? To…

Happy Kitty, Cat Petting Simulator 2014, Purr Purr Purr

I miss having cats. Four years ago, I left home and became a professional itinerant, leaving my felines in the care of rich strangers. Today, I am bereft of cats and so, you shouldn't take me as an unbiased source when I say, "Oh, god. Cat Petting Simulator 2014 is the best thing I've seen in a long time."

Lovecats: Mew-Genics First Footage Shows Rutting Moggies

Mew-Genics, the cat-breeding-based follow-up to Super Meat Boy, has been in development for almost a year and half - that's almost a decade in cat years. Too long, too long! We'll all be crawling under the nearest chest-of-drawers to die soon. At least we finally have some in-game footage to look at, even if it does take the form of an animated GIF. But given…

Jerkwad Cat Simulator: Catlateral Damage

True fact: I was raised by cats. True fact the second: my first word was "meow." I'm not joking about that, either. Point is, I very much get the cat mentality. I grew up around them, and I understand the tiny acts of terrorism they are capable of unleashing upon their small domestic worlds. And let's face it: we, as humans, probably have it coming. I…

Benchmark Your PC With Giant Cats And Dubstep

The list of things cats can do: lick their genitals, preen, fight off bears, and benchmark your PC with dubstep. That last one is SO a thing. Remember those programs that would use pretty graphics and scenes of games that didn't exist to test out how powerful your graphics card is? Well the best one ever has just come out. Allbenchmark's Catzilla shows Godzilla-sized cats…

Kitty Kharacters: Team Meat’s Mew-Genics Hints

Four words all but guaranteed to win my attention: "a game about cats." When said four words are twinned with the knowledge that the game in question comes from the creators of Super Meat Boy and one half of The Binding Of Isaac team, my attention becomes unwavering. We know precious little about Team Meat's Mew-Genics other than that it'll be "randomly generated, strange and…

Headshotter Well Good: Sniper Elite V2 Expands

Rebellion's Sniper Elite V2 was quite good but not great, wasn't it? Come on, do my job for me, I'm tired. Also lazy. Also playing Retro City Rampage (WIT very soon) has fried my ability to concentrate on anything. Kill me, basically. My point, if indeed I do have one, is that the quite good Sniper Elite V2 has some DLC, and hopefully that is…

Miaow Miaow: FreeIndieGames’ All-Cat Spectacular

I live in fear - true, cold, debilitating terror - of my cat dying, even though she's surely got anywhere from 5 to 10 years still left on the clock. These strange, joyful, fearful, psychopathic creatures can achieve such a hold on our lives and affections. Maybe it's just the toxoplasmosis speaking, but young Ripley's chirruping presence in my house makes for a tangible improvement…

Herd Cats, Farm Puppies: Minecraft 1.2

Minecraft 1.2 is here, bringing with it an assortment of features that made me go 'awwww', in that way that people do when they see an adorable baby animal playing with another baby animal of a different species. There's a good reason for me to mention baby animals because, to my mind, the most important additions in this version are puppies, which tame wolves will…

I Ain’t Afraid Of No Cat

As you've probably seen on various news sites that really should know better, tomorrow the streets of London will endure some feline-mounted advertising. Specially-trained black cats will stalk the pavements bearing FEAR 2-emblazoned jackets. The link? Well, tomorrow is Friday the 13th, the unluckiest day of the year. And black cats are also bad luck. And being superstitious is sort of like being afraid, and…
