I have a cool little free game by Chris Chung for y’all today that you must absolutely get your PAWS on! HAHAHAHA! I’m sorry.
The premise of Catlateral Damage is that you are a cat, and your goal is to knock things off shelves, racks, drawers, and book cases onto the floor. Move around and jump the usual way, right click to swipe with your right paw, left click to swipe with your left, and middle mouse button to stick your paw out forward. Easy enough, right? The specific goal is to get 100K points, which you get by get by making stuff hit the floor — that number is deceptively high, of course. It’s actually not that hard, and I’m a bit disappointed that there are no stretch goals as it stands.
The whole concept of this game, however, is amazing. As I started playing it I realized that it’s the game I didn’t know I wanted. Whenever I see a cat knocking things off a shelf I can’t help but think “hey, that looks pretty fun.” And you know what? It is. Very much so. In fact, I think the only way it could be better is if I were a human in a cat’s play-house, getting revenge.
A bittersweet note on this game is it just leaves you wanting so much, but provides so little. Only one level fairly small level and fairly easy to achieve goal. Luckily, the creator, seems to have big plans for the game according to his to-do list. It’s also going through Greenlight on Steam, so be sure to check that out and vote. If you have Unity you can play the game right in your browser, but if you don’t want to get it, you can also get download any the standalone version for Windows, Mac, or Linux here:
