Have You Played… The Cat Lady?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

I haven’t played The Cat Lady [official site]. Or at least, I haven’t played it to completion. If I had to answer my own question, ‘have you played The Cat Lady?’, I’d have to say no, because what little of it I saw, I now believe I misread or was in the wrong mood to appreciate. Time to give it a second chance.

Creepygrim Horror: Downfall Remake Released

Say, how do you like horror adventure games full of love and death and murder and insanity and red blood splattered on black-and-white scenes? I ask because The Cat Lady developer Remigiusz Michalski has released a remake of his earlier point-and-cower game Downfall [official site]. It’s the tale of a man and his wife on a romantic getaway to rekindle their struggling marriage when things turn all dark and unpleasant and, I’d guess, possibly-all-in-your-head. It has a demo so you can see if it’s your bag.

Spinning A Yarn: The Cat Lady

Sparse.

This gives me the creepydinks. A trailer for a new indie adventure called The Cat Lady. However, it doesn’t seem to be about a nice old lady living with her twenty-seven cats, eventually dying and being eaten by them. Nor a giant cat-human mutant destroying central Brighton. Instead it appears to be about DEATH and BLOOD and GORE. Also, a rather interesting looking paper-craft style of animation. I’m not entirely sure the video below could be qualified as safe for work, mostly because it’s so weird. So at your discretion, click on.

The Dark Night: Downfall

Nothing to do with Downfall, natch. In fact it’s been a while since I’ve seen anything like this. Downfall is a old school point-and-click horror adventure, and has apparently just been released on D2D by tricky-to-pronounce developer, Remigiusz Michalski. The game begins with your character arriving in a rainy town, accompanied by a girlfriend who seems to be having a psychotic breakdown. Needless to say, things get worse from there. There are some rather disturbing scenes from the opening moments, although the effect is offset slightly by the crude and clunky animations of the characters once you get into the game proper. Still, you don’t need to rely on my judgment in this instance, as there’s a demo to be found here. The trailer (below) suggests that it’s not going to have a happy or (stain-free) ending.
