One day she discovers that five strangers will come along and change everything... This suspenseful psychological horror game features stylized artwork, a simple keyboard control method and English voice acting, plus a compelling, atmospheric 70 minute soundtrack by Micamic.… Expand
Sep 12, 2013Censor me, I don't care. This game is Play this game. If the Kings Quest series gave birth to Stephen King's baby this would be it. Dark, disturbing, messed up in the head, and brilliant. If you're looking to be scared with loud noises and quick time events look else where, if you want to be told a truly unnerving story that will leave you thinking long after it's over, here it is. Not the kind of game that will hold your hand; it can be frustrating at times, but it never feels pointless or repetitive. If this game had AAA production values, it would be discussed as a Game of the Year candidate, without question.… Collapse
Nov 15, 2013An absolute joy to play.
Touching on some profoundly serious topics in a way that only games as an art form can.
Its only weaknesses are brief moments of weak voice acting, however where the delivery may lack the content is still stellar.
A vision of dark brilliance, a strong synthesis of an urban gothic setting and a magical realism plot that captivates the player. If you do not become emotionally attached to these characters, if the visceral 'meat-and-bone' horror leaves you untouched and the side stories of individual suffering loss and persistence do not stir anything within you -Then you have lost your taste for art and I can propose no cure. This is without a doubt a important work which I can only encourage you see through to the end.… Expand
Apr 15, 2014Amazing game, and incredible story. This game runs about 8 hours on average, the puzzles and solutions to problems are MUCH easier to figure out than most point & click games, which makes for some smooth sailing so you can progress the story consistently. The story is one of the best I've seen in a game for a LONG time, and I play hundreds of games. If Harvester Games had a large budget, this game would've definitely been GOTY material. But instead it's underestimated and overlooked by other popular games. If you want a good scare-not a cheap jumpscare-but a scare that messes with your mind for days on end, then get The Cat Lady. The atmosphere is also a very strong point, it reminds me of Scratches. It's perfect for setting the mood of a very dark, and depressing game. Your actions and choices matter a good amount, and the achievements on Steam are fun to get. Very awesome game, you need to get used to the graphics/animations and gameplay (there isn't much gameplay), but if you can do that, you'll experience one of the best horror stories out there.… Expand
Aug 29, 2014The Cat Lady is one of the more twisted and extraordinary adventure games I got the chance to play.
In short, it's great and worth playing, with only minor flaws, mainly for adventure lovers!
The game deals with a very mature matters, and has mature content, sometimes even disturbing.
+Bizzare, interesting, deep story about human feelings and depression, with great conclusion and a message
+Simple yet great atmosphere, great psychological horror environment
+Good graphics and soundtrack
+Good gameplay mechanics, no need to pixel-hunt that missing object
+More than one ending
-You may not get the entire story on the first time
-Very linear although it seems like it isn't
-Mediocre voice acting at times
-Some minor graphical glitches (very few)
-50 saves limitation, no option to delete saved game in-game… Expand
May 14, 2014Ayn Rand meets The Goonies. This isn't a game but an excuse for a immature person to ramble on about his childish and annoying philosophy of life. It's not horror, merely gross. It's not meaningful, merely fatuous. Vengeance is what makes life worth living--oh boy is that original. It has all the emotional impact of a wet cigar. If you love long tedious conversations by an excited 17 year old who has taken Philosophy 101 for the first time in his life this game is for you. Otherwise, pass it.… Expand
